Editorial Reviews

Romance! Adventure! Hilarity! Italy! Woody Allen leads this all-star cast on a rollicking ride through the streets of one of the world’s greatest cities. Lovers and Fiancées, Opera Singers and Architects, the talented and the famous, and the youthful and the wise are all players within this ensemble tour-de-force, as their stories and lives magically criss-cross and collide throughout this engaging film. Also starring Alec Baldwin, Roberto Benigni, Penélope Cruz, Judy Davis, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig and Ellen Page in a movie as incredible as Rome itself.

There are moments of inspired lunacy which no one has ever done better than Woody Allen. In this film he seems to reprise Broadway Danny Rose by being a retired music business entrepreneur. While meeting his soon to be in laws in Rome, he discovers that the groom's father sings Paglliaci fantastically but he can only sing in the shower. So..... he puts him on stage in the shower in an opera production! This is as inspired an idea as his blind movie director in Hollywood Endings.

The rest of movie is uneven with some parts being much stronger than others.

While normally I might not like the Jesse Eisenberg as Woody stand-in with yet another super neurotic relationship with the non Jewish girlfriend of his dreams, this scenario is entirely saved by Alec Baldwin's being on the scene to advise him on all aspects of this unfolding relationship. Baldwin is wonderful. Eisenberg as Woody, well he follows in a long line of Woody stand ins and he is fine at it.

There are other ensemble moments which are done entirely in Italian because the characters are entirely Italian. The most successful of these is Roberto Begnini who gets his fifteen minutes of fame and goes nuts when it is over. This is well trod ground for this actor, complete with his typical dropping his pants moment. Frankly though, I would have enjoyed these more if these plot points also had Americans in them so everyone could be speaking English. Allen's last movie, set in Paris, would have been less successful if big chunks of it had been in the French spoken language. The Italian language segments just seem forced somehow.

Woody Allen's worst movie is probably a B. That's why this is at worst a B. It is way too uneven for me to be one of his A movies.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3 1/2 stars for another Woody Allen in Europe flick November 17, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Woody Allen presents his annual travelogue of Europe. This year we get Italy, specifically Rome and its environs. Allen also resurfaces before the camera as a musical impresario who specializes in offbeat opera productions. He is the father of Hayley (Alison Pill, "Goon") who meets hunky Michelangelo (Flavio Parenti) while vacationing. Jerry (Allen) hears Michelangelo's father, Giancarlo (Fabio Armiliata), singing in the shower and convinces him to star in an opera, but not in a conventional way.

This is but one of 4 separate and unconnected stories in the film. In another fantasy-like episode, Alec Baldwin seemingly relives a year he spent in Rome as a young man. He squires a man (Jesse Eisenberg) who he meets while trying to find his old apartment. Jack (Eisenberg) is living with Sally (Greta Gerwig) who is a student. A semi-famous movie actress (Ellen Page) is a friend of Sally's and comes for a visit. Against John's (Baldwin) warnings, Jack begins to spend time with Monica (Page) and one thing leads to another.

In perhaps the most offbeat piece, Oscar winner Roberto Benigni ("Life is Beautiful") plays an Italian everyman who suddenly finds that he is famous for no apparent reason. He is a small time clerk in an office. He has a wife and a couple kids. Then one day reporters and photographers become interested in his mundane life. Questions like "what did you have for breakfast?" or do you use an electric or blade when you shave?" become regular events. He goes on TV for interviews. He appears at movie premiers. Benigni is truly a comic genius. I wish I could see more of him.

Finally, there are the newlyweds in Rome for their honeymoon.

Sometimes I go to the movies for pure enjoyment...and this film fits the bill. No it is not brilliant comedy like "Hannah and her Sisters" nor movie magic like "Midnight in Paris" but (yes) it does have quite a lot of laughs and excellent one liners. Woody Allen's spouse is played by Judy Davis and she delivers with excellent deadpan humor. He tells her "I think I have a breakthrough, an epiphany, what would you call it?" "A Death Wish"...she replies.

And who can't relate to the scene where an unsophisticated Italian woman gets completely lost in Rome, obtaining directions that simply cannot be followed. And then she forgets the name of her hotel!

Combining some of his methods from "Annie Hall" and "Play it Again Sam", Woody Allen does a marvelous job of deconstructing the "conversation of dating". And on this point, he hits a bulls-eye. The character played by Alec Baldwin (John) is an imaginary older version of Jesse Eisenberg (Jack) who counsels his younger self on the repercussions of getting involved with the pretty friend of his fiance played by Ellen Page (Monica). Since Monica is interested in the theatre, Jack tries to woo her by exclaiming Monica would be perfect for the role of "Miss Julie" - a part involving shifting roles of sexual dominance. Alec Baldwin rolls his eyes and tells Jack he can't believe he is using "that line" as a hook to get into bed with Monica (the aspiring actress). But the line works.

I won't reveal the funniest moments, but they had me in stitches. It's a fun romantic movie with four independent stories. And a happy ending for the comic misadventures of love. The director is sensitive to urban cinematography...his photography of Rome lavishly displays some of the important tourist destinations. Don't expect miracles, but it is more imaginative than most of the new romantic comedies coming out this year. Recommended.
