danny rose e' l'impresario teatrale piu' disastroso di tutti i tempi. suoi sono i numeri con pappagalli pianisti, ballerine di tip-tap con una sola gamba e ventriloqui balbuzienti, fino a che una improvvisa moda nostalgica procura al suo principale artista, l'astuto cantante di canzoni sentimentali lou canova, un ambito ingaggio al waldorf. ma quando lou si rifiuta di proseguire a meno che danny non accompagni al concerto la sua amante tina, ex-moglie di un gangster, la scena si trasforma in un fallimento completo. catturato con tina, truffato da lou, e preso addirittura in ostaggio dai gangsters, danny si imbarca in un'avventura divertente e agro-dolce nel disperato tentativo di assicurare che lo spettacolo continui, prima che il sipario cali su di lui, oltre che sulla sua carriera.

Format: DVD
One of Woody Allen's finest films and a personal favourite of mine, this is a beautifully understated tale of an everyman talent agent and his relationships with his endless line of spectacularly awful theatrical acts. Danny Rose is played with a baffled kind of innocence by Allen in what is probably his most sympathetic role as a bumbling loser. And he is excellent, toning down his usually caustic barbs (fret not, there're still some belters) in order to bring out the sweetness of Rose's nature. Mia Farrow enjoys one of her best Woody-written roles as the sharp-tongued moll of Nick Apollo Forte's alcoholic lounge singer, bringing considerable warmth to a character that may have eluded other actresses. Forte himself brings presence and heart to the film, deserving all he brings on himself and yet somehow never turning you against him.

It has always been a strength of Allen's that his characters can still draw you in, even if they are fundamentally unlikeable or shallow. This fits in well with the bittersweet tone of 'Broadway Danny Rose' that has a ominous message of lost hope and dreams behind the humour. The final scene between Allen and Farrow at Rose's squalid flat is one of the best I have ever seen, with hardly a word passing from their lips and still managing to make you ache with a contrast of feeling. The banter of the coffee shop comedians is also a clever touch, with Rose clearly considered an example of failure, yet is spoken of with warmth and appreciation.

For me, this film is a meditation on ambition and the repercussions of chasing your dreams. No-one gets what they want, in the way that they want it but all are affected in the pursuit of something better.

Format: DVD
Less visually overhelming than the previous "Zelig" or apparently not as deep as "Another Woman",this disguised new version of "Manhattan" places itself alongside Woody's finest work, although is not amongst the best known ones.
The film is structured as a christian metaphor: some comedians gather together to eat while they remeber the times and works of the most extravagant manager ever. To round this religious meaning, even a sandwich in that eating place is called Danny Rose.
What makes this film so charming is its lack of pretensions. Woody slightly departs from his usual persona while Mia Farrow delivers one of her finest performances so far, in a role that had practically nothing to do with her. The story, too, is one of the warmest ones written by Woody, totally full of love for all the lesser comedians Danny Rose manages, and even comprehension for those who betray him when they achieve success. If you mix this with even a mafia subplot, what you get is one of the most complete Woody Allen's movies: wise jokes, tons of laughter, a moving ending, and all superbly photographed in glorious black and white by a Gordon Willis at the peak of his career.
A deceiving film. A masterpiece. Probably Woody's most intimate, delicate and beautiful picture. A must have

Format: DVD
Fans of Woody Allen are sure to enjoy the comedy, "Broadway Danny Rose." He plays Danny, a third-rate manager of has-been performers, including Lou, a washed-up singer who may be making a comeback. Lou wants his girlfriend to come to his big show (without his wife knowing), so he asks Danny to bring her. Danny and Tina (Mia Farrow) end up spending a frenetic day together running from hit men.
This movie is basically an eighty-four minute monologue by Allen doing his typical fast-talking-schmoozer routine. The dialogue is fast and funny and Allen is, well, Allen. Mia Farrow is virtually unrecognizable as a cheap bimbo and does a good job playing against type, but the spotlight is on Woody all the way. Filmed in black and white in cinema-verite style on the streets of New York, this is vintage Woody Allen with non-stop one-liners and show-biz jokes.

Each time I see a new Woody Allen I keep thinking the bubble will burst, but each time it turns out to be an amazing experience. I think I saw too many of the 90s films before the 70s and 80s, perhaps, but the earlier decades seem to have brought forth his best work. Even then I find the most famous of all, perhaps, Manhattan, is less satisfying than this one, which I believe is much less well-known. I wonder whether it isn't the presence of Mia Farrow that raises them into a special category - they seem to work so well together onscreen. Here the story is close to perfection, with Allen in a less middle-class milieu than we usually find him, but finding an equally rich vein of humour as a theatrical agent. His clients are all doing eccentric, quite lovable acts like bending balloons into shapes, with little success, but he never stops encouraging them. The ones who do better also tend to leave him. Out of this situation he ends up on the run from the Mob with a moll who is dating a singer on his books, and mayhem ensues. The invention is terrific and Farrow is almost unrecognisable as the blonde with the big shades, full of prima-donnishness, yet giving a suspicion that maybe she would be different if she could just get rid of the glasses ... all the brilliance lies in this suggestion! And in Allen himself, of course, who is a kind of genius. How many people in the history of film have been able to write and act with such humour and vision? It is a fantastic film - and I normally dislike anything to do with gangsters - and I'd be amazed if anyone didn't like it!
