New York, New York is a 1977 musical film directed by Martin Scorsese. V-J Day in 1945 was the scene of a massive party throughout New York City. Saxophone player Jimmy Doyle (Robert De Niro) and singer Francine Evans (Liza Minnelli) meet at a party to the musical stylings of the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra. That night, Francine wanted nothing to do with Jimmy, but fate seems to be against her when they end up sharing a cab the next morning.

The two begin a romantic relationship, but as the years go on the two face their problems. Jimmy's anger issues seem to be an insurmountable obstacle to overcome and the two must learn to either live together or die alone.moreless
