A bittersweet NYC love story,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Little Manhattan (DVD)
This movie was a blind-buy in my case, and I have to say, I wasn't in the least bit dissapointed.
The basis of the story is young "ten-and-three-quarters" year old Gabe who falls in love with Rosemary.
The movie is wonderful. It's a love story, but it's innocent and bittersweet, which gives it it's charm. The movie is one to which everyone can relate to. Rosemary and Gabe are like our inner child, and New York City as the setting is beautiful, it gives off the "magical place where anything can happen" aura.
The cast is also incredible.
Everything fits and comes together almost perfectly. I especially liked the fact that they made Gabe the narrator and that he doesn't come off as corny, but more as a cynic as far as love and girls go (which would be understandable for his age). The movie never loses pace and I didn't once look at my watch, which is a huge plus.
Overall, it's a movie I really enjoyed watching and that I'd highly recommend.
