Cast: Penelope Cruz, Roberto Benigni, Alec Baldwin
A Woody Allen movie is like a Bond movie: you’ll see it whatever the critics say because of the eternal appeal of the man. And what’s wrong with that. It’s guaranteed pleasure for and light entertainment. After Midnight in Paris, he continues his European tour with this carefree sharp-scripted passegiata through Rome switching between four stories of locals and visitors to the city. A stellar cast ensures fab performances from Penelope Cruz, Alex Baldwin, Ellen Page, Roberto Benigni, Judy Davies and Woody himself an insecure (what else?) opera director.
