5.0 out of 5 stars Allen Robs Us of a Movie- But Gives Us Something Quite Unique Instead, 31 Mar. 2013
This review is from: Radio Days [DVD] (DVD)
It's hard to call Radio Days a straightforward movie. It's more small interwined ancedotes from a forgotten era. Based around real radio reports and a New York Jewish family during the late 1930s, early 40s.

It's a lavish production and director Woody Allen really sets up the atmosphere in this his love letter to the old glourious days of radio.

The movie is very short for an Allen film, scraping to just over 80 mins, but there is plenty to enjoy here. The dialogue as ever in an Allen film is top drawer.

For the film itself, Allen had the plot and this could well have been a two or three hour epic, perhaps following the young boy through his years. It stops well short of that, and ends quite suddenly. It would be easy for the passing viewing to wave this effort off with 3 stars. However if you're a fan of Allen's best work and indeed if you yourself remember those radio days then this is wonderful stuff.

One cannot see in say 50 years time, a director reminisicng over his family watching SKY TV, and that is the huge difference between the quality that Radio Days can provide and the me me me generation of today.
