Abridged Book Description

Satiric and lovely, Manhattan is the rapturous high point of Woody Allen's on-screen love affair with New York City and even opens like an expressive Valentine, with an affectionate montage of city images. His 1977 film Annie Hall won the major prizes, but this bittersweet follow-up film is the perfect balancing act between wry, screamingly good wit and well-aimed wounds.
