As I understand it, this movie was made right after Annie Hall. I saw Annie Hall on TV and loved it and will review it, but I wanted to say something about MANHATTAN first.

Okay, for me, it did not top Annie Hal, but MANHATTAN worked splendidly anyway and I really like it.

Woody Allen continues to show us over and over again how diverse he is with the ways he portrays relationships. Always profound and always with humor covering underlying universal truths.

Congrats to him for writing and directing this.

Also big nods to the actors, who were great - Woody Allen, Diane Keaton, Mariel Hemingway, Michael Murphy and Meryl Streep
