New York Stories is a 1989 American anthology film consisting of three segments with the central theme being New York City. The first is Life Lessons, directed by Martin Scorsese, written by Richard Price and starring Nick Nolte. The second is Life Without Zoë, directed by Francis Ford Coppola and written by Coppola with his daughter, Sofia Coppola. The last is Oedipus Wrecks, directed, written by and starring Woody Allen. In foreign theatrical releases, the order of the three films was altered, Coppola’s being first, followed by Allen’s, and finishing with Scorsese’s. The film was screened out of competition at the 1989 Cannes Film Festival.

1) Martin Scorsese (“Life Lessons”) shows us a successful artist – Lionel Dobie, who does not have a soul for his assistant – Paulette. She is his muse; she inspires him to masterpieces. The story of a desperate, and to some extent humiliating struggle of a man for his love.

2) Francis Ford Coppola (“Life Without Zoë”). In this part of the film, we are talking about a little girl – Zoe, whose native home is the New York Hotel. Her parents are divorced and in constant trips, the nanny is replaced by a butler. An adult beyond the years of Zoe, suddenly finds herself in the midst of a real oriental tale.

3) Woody Allen (“Oedipus Wrecks”). The story of a 50-year-old New Yorker – Sheldon Mills, who remained for her mother her beloved “little boy”, which needs an eye and an eye. She intervenes in his personal life, disgraces his friends, and simply turns the life of the hero into a real nightmare.
