Stardust Memories (1980)

Directed by Woody Allen

Shot in beautiful black-and-white, Woody’s send up of Fellini’s contain some of the finest moments in the Allen oeuvre. Particularly Charlotte Rampling’s scenes, seemingly stolen-moments: her breakdown in close-up and (my favorite moment in all Woody’s films) her, almost-too-candidly, reading a magazine one morning as Louis Armstrong plays Stardust.*

Here's the trailer; and for those who have seen the movie, the scene with Ms. Rampling.
* This 50-word review was written in 2006.
