Woody Allen’s latest, and it’s nice to see him in front of the camera again here as he joins a raft of other top billed actors in a multi-vignetted tale, much in the vein of his ‘You will meet a tall dark stranger’ (10). Once again, he successfully infuses everything with the feel and character of his setting, this time Rome. There’s nothing really new here and, although it’s pleasant to watch, there’s no real grit to the whole, with some of the individual stories much more whimsical and less interesting than the others. It’s a little light on the comedy front and largely thanks to the not so interesting stories it feels overly long. It’s unlikely to be a classic, but it shouldn’t be a complete disappointment either.
