Manhattan by Woody Allen

Manhattan Woody Allen

I haven’t seen many movies by Woody Allen. Yes I know surprising. I guess this is because when I was young my mother didn’t like his movies and I didn’t really have a chance to come across them. I know still weird.

Recently I’ve seen Manhattan 1979. Starring Woody Allen, Diane Keaton, Meryl Streep and Mariel Hemingway.

I have to say I liked it. Won’t be something that I will recommend to anyone who I meet, but if you don’t have anything to do you will enjoy it probably.


The film is filled with autobiographical elements. Woody Allen is emotionally involved with the Manhattan. Observant viewers will see the mention of Allen’s favorite director – Bergman and interest in history, as well as Europe, expressed in valuable discussions. Undoubtedly, Allen wanted to fascinate viewers with New York. The place and people living there have been for him for years an endless source of inspiration.
