From Amazon.co.uk

To Rome With Love sees Woody Allen back in front of the camera for the first time since 2006's underwhelming Scoop, heading up one of the collection of stories that make up the film. For the movie brings together a collection of four unconnected narratives taking place in the city of Rome, with Allen playing a frustrated opera director who's always on the hunt for new talent. He finds some too, with a little help from a shower. Elsewhere, Roberto Benigni's Leopoldo gets a brief brush with fame, a young couple find themselves parted, while Jesse Eisenberg's Jack finds the predictions of Alec Baldwin's John close to the mark.

It's a bit of a mixed bag, though. At its best, From Rome With Love is witty, breezy and just a little bit bonkers. Elements, however, feel undercooked, and Woody Allen, with his writer and director hat on, would arguably have been better fleshing out one or two of the stories, rather than diverting us with tales that don't seem to go very far at all.

On the bright side, Rome is exquisitely shot, and Allen has clearly fallen in love with another European city. Furthermore, there are a number of really good laughs in From Rome With Love, that are very worth waiting for. It might not be a vintage Woody Allen feature, but it's still with more merits than you may have been led to believe. --Jon Foster

Synopsis

Woody Allen plays a father meting his daughter's Italian in-laws to-be in this ensemble comedy that interweaves four tales set in Rome.

Format: DVD
If you have seen every Woody Allen movie in the past decade, then the way this one goes will be no surprise. If you've not seen them, then this one may inspire you to see them. It's a typical Allen scenario - two young couples face challenges to their relationships when they find themselves in romantic climes. In one case, the mix is complicated by a comic muddle over the identity of the young man's bride, the confusing emerging from a twist of fate involving a call-girl (Penélope Cruz). In the other, there is the matter of resisting a girl whose provocative but blithe sexuality attracts the attention of more than one man.

Infidelity and their comic fallout are Allen's stock-in-trade. They have featured in almost every movie he has ever made. It even slipped into his most prosaic and serious movie - Interiors. Even so, Allen always controls it, and keeps it just this side of being ridiculous; though this movie does take the farce a little further than most.

Allen has also often questioned the meaning of fame. Famously unconcerned with his own fame, Allen visits the subject here again, but this time from a new perspective: that of un-earned fame. An ordinary man finds himself suddenly the object of media attention, is adored by everyone. Though baffled by fame, he soon realises the benefits it brings. He is thus feted by the masses; his opinion is sought on the most trivial of matters, and so on. His fame also lures him into infidelity, aided by a tide of women who are inexplicably excited by this confused, balding, middle-aged nobody in a suit. Allen digs into the question of fame a second time, when looking at how someone resisting fame may be turned.

There is a lot of Italian dialogue in this movie.

I've just seen this film and it's the best tonic I've had this Autumn. The actors are spot on, the theme is hilarious and very 'Woody Allen'. There are breathtaking views of Rome throughout and you get the wonder of that beautiful city. The various theme sketches were unconnected and each had its own charm and surprises. Woody, as always, was a great character and his wife, Judy Davis, was a perfect complement to him. Alec Baldwin played the best part I've ever seen him in and Penelope Cruz should get an Oscar for her part as the dazzling whore and her command of the Italian language. Yes,it has sub-titles for the Italian parts but this in no way detracts from your enjoyment and makes it all the more authentic. Woody has a dig at the 'celeb' status and Roberto Benigni plays the victim of overnight fame for no good reason and that story is gut-achingly funny. The real-life opera singer, Fabrio Armiliato, is not only brilliant in his part but has a wonderful voice and despite the comedic element of his role, his voice touches you to the core. This is light-hearted comedy at its very best with good music throughout to set the scene. It's soooo Italian and you are totally caught up in the characters and can find it all quite believable. I just didn't want it to end.

He is such a great filmmaker! Sadly this is not in my opinion one of his best, its saving grace are the beautiful pictures of Rome. I suppose if you look at his huge body of work there is bound to be some disappointments this if one.

Its OK but not one of Allen's best. Not very memorable to be honest! If you want to watch a really superb Woody Allen film buy Midnight in Paris instead which is a fabulous film that we watch again and again!

This film had poor reviews from the critics who said that it was shallow and a let down after Midnight in Paris. DON'T TAKE ANY NOTICE OF THEM.
This is a wonderful film, all about how the trivia and shallowness of everyday life become so life-absorbing to most people.

This is a feel-good film, very amusing, with loads of wonderfully witty lines that cause you to laugh aloud. The story lines are superbly crafted and interwoven, and the directing and photography are first class. It's vintage Woody Allen - in positive happy mood (though with the usual occasional amusingly philosophical interjections about life's meaning and death) - all the way through, and all the threads are wrapped up neatly so that everyone in the film is grateful.

Highly, highly recommended. A treasure of a film. I really, really love it.

Format: DVD
While not great Woody Allen - it's neither profound, moving nor funny
enough for that title, it is quite enjoyable.

The film is made up of four intercut short stories, that share little
other than the fact they're set in Rome. Some have fantasy elements,
some are more absurdist, others more straightforward character farce.

But somehow, though they don't make much of a logical grouping, the
whole thing is lighthearted and fun enough that it seems grumpy to pick
on it.

Sure some jokes fall flat and some ideas seem unfulfilled, but a lot of
it is wonderfully acted and cleverly written. And at a time when so
many comedies are aimed only at 15 year olds, even 2nd tier Woody,
simply telling playfully comic tales, is a welcome sight.
