français La première histoire était globalement bonne, la deuxième, lamentable et la troisième, de toute beauté. Avec tout le respect que j'ai pour Martin Scorsese et Francis Ford Coppola, Woody démontre une fois encore qu’il est inatteignable. Et qui d’autre que lui filmerait l’histoire d’un héros qui est hanté par le fantôme de sa propre mère ? Grâce à Woody, New York Stories s’en tire à bon compte ! ()

anglais Given the population of New York, it is possible to compare the creation of a film to a situation when a producer challenges three directors who shoot in different styles and for a different audience to create something. The individual stories would stand on their own at least among fans of the respective director, but together it doesn't work and moreover, I have a feeling that in neither case is it a piece that stands high amongst the works of the directors. All three stories have a certain detachment and elements of humor of varying intensity. Although I am a fan of Woody Allen, I was most intrigued by Scorsese's story. Overall impression: 60%. ()

anglais Weak to extremely weak. Scorsese follows the romance between an artist and his muse in the form of Nick and Rosanna. Coppola gives a chance to his daughter Sofia, who's been toiling away as a screenwriter... and finally, Allen makes another variation on whatever Mia was in (and as a bonus, destroys the comedic talents of Mae Questel). We also get to see a tiny Kirsten Dunst as an extra in the role of Mia’s daughter. Oh, dear. Well, everyone has to start somewhere. ()

anglais In this short story showdown, in my eyes, Woody Allen is the clear winner, closely followed by Martin Scorsese, with Francis Ford Coppola trailing behind. This might have been slightly influenced by the fact that he's the only one of the three who wasn't born in New York City. Since Woody Allen really amused me with his excellent satire about his ever-supervising mother, I reflected this in the final rating by adding one extra star. ()

anglais Three short stories directed by three masters. Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen, and Francis Ford Coppola. Martin Scorsese shows what a talent he has for strong characters and how well he manages their destinies. The painter played by Nick Nolte is excellent. Woody Allen once again plays his neurotic self, but in this case, he is unbelievably charming, primarily thanks to his film mom. And finally, Francis Ford Coppola, who also does not disappoint, but it's as if he doesn't quite fit with the other two. After all, Scorsese and Allen have New York much more ingrained in them, both through life experiences (Coppola is from Detroit) and cinematically. ()
