This film comprises three short pieces by three directors (Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen and Francis Ford Coppola) about life in New York City. The first, 'Life Lessons' is directed by Scorsese and focuses on a painter (Nick Nolte) whose young girlfriend (Rosanna Arquette) leaves him. The second, 'Life Without Zoe' is directed by Coppola and centres on a rich young girl (Talia Shire) who wants to reunite her parents and the third, Allen's 'Oedipus Wrecks' focuses on a neurotic lawyer (Allen) who can't escape the interfering influence of his mother.
New York Stories comprises three views of life in the city of all cities, with segments directed by Woody Allen, Francis Coppola, and Martin Scorsese. The best of the three is Scorsese's "Life Lessons", about an artist (played by Nick Nolte) who uses his hyper-success to lure beautiful, young, aspiring artists to serve as his assistant/lovers. It's an astute portrait of the nature of the New York art world. In "Life Without Zoe", Coppola portrays the life of the privileged daughter of a world-renowned flautist, whose adventures on the Upper East Side (in the upper echelons of society) play like something approaching a cartoon. Woody Allen finishes up the film with his "Oedipus Wrecks", a typical Allen number about a successful New York lawyer who's still hounded by his mother--the title tells you all you need to know. Though stronger segments to complement Scorsese's would have made the movie as a whole much more interesting and enjoyable, it does at least provide an accurate glimpse of life in the Big Apple. --James McGrath, Amazon.com

Scorcese - yes, a bit pretentious but really a very honest portrayal of artistic angst... maybe.
Coppola - pointless [...].
One of those videos that gets watched time & time again.
The second film was a bit twee and to be honest I didn't get to the end of it.
Woody Allen's film was quirky in the extreme and only mildly amusing - take into account that i love 70% of Woody's output and consider he has made several classic comedies. Aside from his great films i would recommend the low-key, gentle paced, but charming Manhattan Murder Mystery. This is nowhere near as good as that.

interesting for the most part. Worth watching. Liked the one about the artist the most.Published 2 months ago by D. Wolgroch
I can't begin to explain how dull this film is. Awful acting, awful story line, awful direction. Don't waste your time. Do the washing up instead, or brush the catPublished 17 months ago by Dinky
Some interesting vignettes and a peek into life in New York in a few quirky situations. If you like Woody Allen, it's one to have on the shelf.Published 18 months ago by arabella
The first and last stories were the best, the middle story quite boring!
Woody Allen's contribution really set the film alive!
