Get ready for a wildly diverse, star-studded trilogy about life in the big city. New York Stories features the creative collaboration of three of America's most popular directors, Martin Scorsese, Francis Coppola and Woody Allen.
Life Lessons Nick Nolte stars in this passionate tale of a world famous painter torn between his obsession for his art and his infatuation with his sultry but unresponsive assistant (Rosanna Arquette). Directed by Martin Scorsese.
Life without Zoe Talia Shire and Giancarlo Gianinni star in this whimsical fantasy as the childlike parents of Zoe, a very grown up 12 year old girl who brings charm and magic to life in New York. Directed by Francis Coppola.
Oedipus Wrecks Woody Allen directs and stars in this hilarious comedy as a neurotic lawyer who cannot escape the one woman who looms large in his life - his mother (Mae Quests). Mia Farrow and Julie Kavner star as the "other woman" who further complicates his situation.
I was expecting better things having seen the directors and cast list. The first one was the most engaging, with Nick Nolte playing a tortured artist in love with his muse. The Coppola story wa 'OK' and the Woody Allen one was just irritating and painful to watch. Rather a waste of good talent all round. Only watch it if there's nothing else on!
