Our Score
Woody Allen here continues his extended, and clearly refreshing, European Grand Tour. Having begun in London with Match Point, taken in Spain with Vicky Cristina Barcelona and visited the French capital in Midnight in Paris, he finally reaches the Eternal City to deliver a fluffily entertaining dispatch composed of four intercut but not intertwining stories. It's at its best with the tales of an ageing architect (Alec Baldwin) meeting an American student (Jesse Eisenberg) who reminds him of (or may in fact be) himself as a younger man, and the screwballish story of a nervous newlywed (Alessandro Tiberi) whose encounter with a brassy, exciting call girl (Penélope Cruz) ends up with her being mistaken for his wife. Slightly less successful are the accounts of an opera singer (Fabio Armiliato) who can only perform in the shower and an ordinary Roman (Roberto Benigni) who inexplicably finds himself transformed into a celebrity relentlessly pursued by paparazzi fascinated with what he might have had for breakfast. The weaker material may have the slightly dusty feel of sketches Allen penned for The New Yorker back in the 1960s, but the overall mood of sunny good cheer is difficult to resist.

Summary

The lives of several people in the Italian capital overlap as they deal with significant experiences. An architect encounters a young couple and is reminded of his own painful past, a director prepares to meet his daughter's fiance and an ordinary man finds himself the city's most famous resident. Comedy, directed by and starring Woody Allen. With Penelope Cruz, Alec Baldwin, Ellen Page and Jesse Eisenberg.
