Woody Allen creates a tribute to the Big Apple, to romance, to movies and to the love of love itself with this dreamy film. He plays a writer working on his first big novel whose affair with a precociously intelligent teenager () is interrupted by a sexy, grown woman () who may just be the love of his life. He also has to factor in his ex-wife (), who left him for another woman, and the jealousy he feels over the other men in Keaton’s life, all of which are perfectly balanced by the sterling-silver screenplay. The gorgeous black-and-white photography by Gordon Willis shows New York at its loveliest, while the performances shine and Allen’s delightful sense of romance will send you home humming.
