Dir: Woody Allen, 1979, USA, 96 mins.
With Woody Allen, Mariel Hemingway, Diane Keaton, Meryl Streep.

Over the years Woody Allen has had his ups and downs but there can be no doubt that this romcom is a masterpiece.  Shot in lustrous black and white it is his homage to New York with the music of Gershwin providing the perfect background.  Typically Allen appears to reflect himself in the flawed character of Isaac, an ex-TV producer turned writer who spends most of his time trying to deal with his complicated love life.
