- Storyline: On the heels of Annie Hall, the Oscar-winning romantic comedy that rocketed Woody Allen to the front ranks of American filmmakers, Manhattan continued Allen's romantic obsessions in a slightly darker, more pessimistic vein. Allen stars as Isaac Davis, a TV comedy writer sick of the pap he is forced to churn out and harboring dreams of being the great American novelist. His love life is in barbed-wire territory: he is tormented by his second ex-wife Jill (Meryl Streep), a lesbian who has written a tell-all book about their marriage, and he is dating teenager Tracy (Mariel Hemingway), to whom he refuses to commit, and keeps hinting that a breakup may be imminent. Isaac's disillusioned (and married) best friend Yale (Michael Murphy) has begun an affair with the cerebral writer Mary Wilke (Diane Keaton). While Isaac makes a last minute, sink-or-swim decision to quit his job and devote all of his time to book writing, and neurotically moans about what the lack of a full time job will do to him ("My parents won't have as good of a seat in the synagogue," he moans. "They'll be far away from God... away from the action") Yale is crippled by his lack of resolve, as indicated by his inability to leave his wife Emily (Anne Byrne). Meanwhile, Isaac and Mary begin to fall for one another. Tracy then tells Isaac the basic truth that none of his hung-up friends and past lovers fully realizes: "You have to have a little more faith in people." Manhattan is both a seriocomic dissection of perpetually dissatisfied New Yorkers and an ode to the city itself, filmed in glorious black-and-white by ace cinematographer Gordon Willis, and set to a score of rhapsodic George Gershwin music. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi Download or Watch your favorite movies online.

I won't rework the thorough comments which preceded mine here, because allthe accolades I would give this film are stated quite eloquently. It ishisbest film; it does contain brilliant insights into human nature; it isvisually breathtaking. I just want to mention a few aspects from my pointofview.
It has been on my list of the five best movies ever made ever since I sawitin 1979, chiefly for its realistic dialogue and probing commentary on thedesperate nature of human beings in search of love, but I had never seenNewYork with my own eyes, so I could only try to accept but not fullyunderstand Woody's love for Manhattan, which is firmly stated in theintroductory narration.
After my recent 4 day trip there, I have a new perspective - the cityitselfis so charmingly and compactly laid out, so full of history and cultureandeverything famous, that you can't go to New York without falling in lovewith it. After only 3 days I felt I wanted to live there. It is the cityofnot only Woody Allen but Bob Dylan, Tennessee Williams, Edgar Allan Poe,George Washington, Paul Newman, Jacqueline Onassis, and hundreds of otherillustrious and creative people of the past and present. The tour guidescan't possibly squeeze in the whole story of every district and everybuilding; the air just vibrates with this knowledge that you are in thegreatest city in the world.
The beauty of Manhattan that Woody conveys so perfectly in every camerashotand through the music of Gershwin has new meaning for me because I wasthere. It's not so much a physical beauty but a feeling that all is rightwith the city, that this is what a city is supposed to be. It puts othercities to shame.
All I can say is he fully succeeded in conveying what New York City islike.Not to mention that I now understand the obsession with delis; they havethebest food in the world.
I would also like to add my new perspective on the story itself - a very70's plot of several people switching romantic partners back and forth atthe drop of a hat. Diane Keaton's Mary remains the most perfect of thecharacterizations as the neurotic free spirit who despite her totalself-absorption inspires our sympathy and affection. The 17 year oldplayedby Mariel Hemingway is more irritating with the passage of 20 years, notbecause Woody's real-life obsession with young girls came to light, butbecause Mariel is a truly vapid non-actress with no ability to convey anydepth or feeling. The constant commentary about her stunning beauty fallsflat because she merely has a strikingly angular face, no personality andreally possesses nothing except the bloom of youth and shiny hair. Maryrightly tells Isaac that his first wife becoming a lesbian "explains thelittle girl."
The denouement seems more unsatisfactory now than in previous viewings,andI want to shake the characters awake. But it was the seventies, and thisishow people acted. It captures the times perfectly. I can't discuss whoendsup with whom without spoiling the end for those who haven't seen it, buttheproblem for me is that the characters seem to live for the moment and ifthey can't have the one they want, they simply change partners withoutmuchstrain.
This attitude does not play quite so charmingly at the end of the 90'swhenfidelity is valued more highly than it was in the 70's.
Nevertheless the beauty of the city stands alone no matter what thecharacters' desperate machinations.
And as a hilarious commentary on the human instinct to find someone toloveno matter what the consequences, there is nothing finer. Though I mightnotapprove of Isaac's final choice, his almost religious experience whichbrings him to that conclusion is a stunning climax to the film. Whether hechanges his mind about who is the right one for him, he has learnedsomething crucial about what really is important to him in life.
The true stars of the movie are Manhattan, never more beautiful, and DianeKeaton, never more brilliant.
