Have you seen To Rome With Love? How did you like it? On Saturday evening Balazs and I decided to dive into some Woody Allen goodness. Isn’t he fantastic? We have been huge fans of his movies and this one hasn't disappointed either. It’s very Woody, indeed! The film consists of four little stories in one common location - the breath-taking Rome! There is one story of an ordinary office worker who unexpectedly finds himself famous. Another one with Woody himself playing a father and opera-director who travels to Rome to meet his daughter’s future husband and spend some time with his family. The third story is about a couple who arrives to Rome from the countryside to start their married life there, while the last one includes Alec Baldwin playing a wealthy architect who meets a student aka Jesse Eisenberg, his girlfriend Sally and her friend Monica played by the adorable Ellen Page. As always in Woody's films things get complicated, messy and nothing what they seemed at first. So if you are in the mood for some swoonworthy scenery, Woody's corkiness, amazing acting and one awesome kaleidoscopic comedy - this film is so for you!
Bits and bobs:
- Have you seen Midnight in Paris? It's equally amazing.
- A few of my Woody favourites include Annie Hall, You will meet a Tall Dark Stranger, New York Stories and Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Yours?
- Alec Baldwin drops his pants - giggle.
- Judy Davis played Woody's wife in the film and you might also remember her from Husbands and Wives.
- Fancy knowing Woody's three movie star crushes?
- Alison Pill - the on-screen daughter was fantastic in Milk with Sean Penn.
- Woody on the 74th Academy Awards:)
- WOW, Woody doing standup back in 65!
- Alec hosting the Oscars with Steve Martin - Brilliant!
- Woody on the movie...
- The adorable Flavio Parenti aka the future son in-law also played in a movie Tell Me About Love back in 2008.
- Jesse was pretty great in The Social Network, don't you think?
- Two of my favourite films from Ellen are Juno and Inception.
- And the beautiful Penélope Cruz aka Anna. She was genius!
P.S: Fancy more?
