“They keep falling in and out of love,” reads the tagline, and that quite nicely sums up thefilm. David Steinberg is the neurotic manager of an art-house cinema, and Susan Sarandon hascome to NYC to become a journalist. They are different, but there’s chemistry, BUT sometimesthe chemistry is of the wrong kind, and the movie charts the ups and downs of their relationship.“In the tradition of Annie Hall” the case boasts, and the case could be made that it is alittle to… much in that tradition. Woody Allen did the screwed-up New Yorker romance prettydefinitively, and then continued to flog his own horse until it was dead and glue, and this feelsrather familiar. That doesn’t mean it’s badly done, however.
You have your basic mono soundtrack here. It’s good enough to be getting on with, but itdoes occasionally lapse into minor muzziness. Otherwise, it’s a no-frills track that does its jobbut nothing more.
The picture comes in fullscreen and 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen versions (on oppositesides of the disc). The colours are nice, and the print is in good shape, but the grain level variesquite a bit. Most of the time, there isn’t much of a problem in this department, but there are someextremely grainy shots.
Bare bones stuff: mono sound, average picture, no extras, and a film that everyone has longsince forgotten.
