Release Notes



Is there anything left to say about this, Woody Allen’s (arguably) greatest and most artful film? It’s the one that perfected the template of his work and also foretold his real-life fate—Allen plays a writer in love with a teenager (Mariel Hemingway)—and it’s the one that cemented his status as the quintessential New York filmmaker. In Allen’s hands, Manhattan the place becomes both a city of real beauty and an Olympian symbol of cosmic solitude.
