A reason to indecency beaten for the modern world, resembling more a cliché of the classic romance, developing into a tragedy. Various activists have made the 83-year-old woody Allen the center of a sex scandal 25 years ago.
The situation with the one hand, the least similar to the dream another — more reminiscent of a well thought out plan. He woody Allen denies the plausibility of this story, considering all the above fabricated his former wife tale. What I wonder legal charges Director no one not put forward, and conducted a forensic medical examination of the States of new York and Connecticut to prove the guilt of Allen is not able. So anyway, the situation is extremely ambiguous. Similar scandals have begin to pall, what about "Rainy day in new York" the public at some point, simply began to forget.
Bypassing prohibitions in States, to the Russian 48th feature film, woody Allen still got. And was principle, usually: "Rainy day in new York" — classic film by Director, and if you close your eyes to a scandal that undermines the positive-warm tone feeds, it is noteworthy in the new it really even and no. In all over that Allen so much like the world. In this time the Director explores human identity through the prism of the retro-melodramatic narratives. The center of the story, he makes always cloudy and grey new York, which causes boredom and discomfort. alone while others see in all this drab city cinematic romance.

Ashley gets an assignment from my University to interview the famed Director that becomes the reason why it with her lover goes to journey rainy new York. Here only a short interview and further walks on parks are put under the question is, when Gatsby meets a childhood friend, and Ashley plunged into the world of the cinematic Bohemia.
The characters in the movie all the time talking about the movie, discussing old black and white classics. First, characters with love to laugh causing the teeth on edge stamps melodramatic stories, and after — rekonstruiruet scenes from them. Like woody Allen takes you through his entire story, which at the traditions are crammed with amorous entanglements, by talking about life and relationships. And beats your concept the author is using flirting with masks — some characters literally wear masks, gradually removing them, and all the rest are hidden behind the mask public. And due to the fact that almost all characters of the tape is not know yourself, have them problems with the search for self, love and life's journey.
Characters Timothy Salame and Elle fanning are divided in a large town, not really kommunitsiruya each friend. Fleeting phone conversations are interrupted by a frantic pace of life metropolis. And while Gatsby engaged in endless soul-searching, wasting earned money right and left, Ashleigh became the center of sensational confessions and love triangles artists.

A series of such events is not random — Ashley interesting to others, especially the upper class society. "As a charming, slightly silly simpleton of Arizona like it?" — asks the hapless viewer. The answer gives itself woody Allen, drawing an analogy with the already mentioned masks. Ashley — very open girl, cheerful and always ready to communicate, often allows emotions to take precedence over the rational thinking. It and attracts Hollywood Bohemians — their lives full of lies, hypocrisy and the constant stress that they dampen with alcohol. Allen paints portraits of adults, creative individuals, not know themselves that and is a major problem.
"It is terrible to live such a life you don't know myself" — about similar theses woody Allen and communicates with viewers his film. The author tries to convey very simple ideas about that ripping off the mask in the first with yourself, a man changes not only himself, but and changes surrounding the world. Love failure easily go on no, when the characters begin to understand themselves and consequently, its problems. The main characters in the movie see the world differently. Ashley sees in new York, only depression, and Gatsby — finds the romance in it endlessly gray sky. All love the pairs that appear in the story, is miserable it is for the reason — they see the world in its own way. Here only the characters do not can admit that them like they are afraid of becoming outcasts from public opinion.
A complete lack of understanding yourself leads to depression, creative crises and detachment from others. Through cinematography, the Director emphasizes the complete solubility of the new Yorkers in the city. When the characters communicate with each other, Allen draws between them barriers, emphasizing the closeness of the adults and the wealthy. Emphasizes woody Allen's and the help of rain which in different acts felt differently. If the early rain — unpleasantly cold, the closer to the final credits he finds love-warm perception. When the heroes dropped from the mask, the world of them is different, resembling a good movie with a pile of cliches and cliches. Here only the Director leaves another message hidden between the lines: "Life — that there is a cliche".

At its core, the film is ideal for viewing rainy night. He is not annoying, relaxes and makes you smile from love story, nice cast and the whole happy cinematic references. It's a shame that scenes from this painting remains funny and funny only on screen, as in these same situation would be completely the opposite effect.
