What if Woody Allen made his famous movie in Melbourne 2012 instead of Manhattan 1979?

Melbhattan is part homage, part pastiche of the opening sequence of Woody Allen’s seminal 1979 film, Manhattan. Drawn and animated by Melbourne-based cartoonist and illustrator Oslo Davis, Melbhattan features more than sixty black and white tableaux of Melbourne each composed to mimic images in Allen’s film. Melbhattan features an original score by local composer and musician Biddy Connor.
To answer the question: I reckon the lead character would've been Oslo Davis instead of Isaac Davis. Much more information at the official site.

    The link to the offical site was a bit slow for me too, so I’ve changed the link to the one suggested by hk.

    Couldn’t get it to play past about 2:30 (and it was a struggle getting that far – and I’m on cable), but seriously – no cyclists? How are we supposed to start another MHL debate now?
