I watch this film once before and the only thing I remembered was that Woody Allen's character dated a very young girl with prominent eyebrows. Now those eyebrows are getting back to fashion, so it's time for a rewatch!
Už raz som tento film videla a jediné, čo som si pamätala bolo to, že postava Woodyho Allena randila s mladou dievčinou s výrazným obočím. Teraz sa to obočie vracia do módy a teda je čas pozrieť si film znovu.

Woody Allen has some more trouble in relationships with women, friends and himself. When does he not? So even if you don't know much about him, you can probably conclude that it's a comedy and you're right. In one of his most famous films Manhattan from 1979 (you can see the horrible terrible adorable fashion there too) his ex-wife (well, it's actually his character's wife but I just always associate every character he plays with him, because they are all the same) so his ex-wife wants to publish a book about their unsuccessful marriage, which stresses him a lot. She is played by Meryl Streep and I promised myself to watch more films with her because holy s**t this lady is stunning to watch:
|See? Even when she's giving him the "I'm sick of you" face, she's still stunning.|
We even get some quotations about Woody Allen's character from her book and they are all true down to the fact that he's narcissistic. I don't know to which extend we can indentify Woody Allen with his characters, but... Why would anybody imagine other people writing book about him? Do you expect that your ex-partners to write a book about you? Is that likely? I doubt it. But Woody Allen does expect that which is very self-centered but his characters in general are fun to watch not because of heroic acts. Being ridiculous is a part of his charm.
