Summary by Cretu Irina
"To Rome with Love" is an interesting cinematic mixture between romantic comedy and satirical farce. Incredible acting, explicit dialogue and luminous scenes spiced with surreal notes create the image of a typical Woody Allen film. We are presented thirteen major characters and several minor ones who interact with each other, fact that will change their lives forever.
Woody Allen (Jerry), one of the main characters, a retired opera director, comes to Rome with his psychiatrist wife (Judy Davis) in order to meet their daughter Hayley's ( Alison Pill) Italian boyfriend Michelangelo (Flavio Parenti). During this visit, Jerry revitalizes his own career by discovering and promoting the singing talent of Michelangelo's father.
Other stories, which complete this kaleidoscopic comedy, reveal the life of a couple from provinces, Antonio and Milly (Alessandro Tiberi and Alessandra Mastronardi) who are separated for a day through hazard and comic delusion. Antonio spends some time with a stranger (Penelope Cruz) as his wife, and in the meantime, Milly is being charmed by the legendary movie star Luca Salta (Antonio Albanese). We also witness the encounter between a famous architect (Alec Baldwin) and Jack (Jesse Eisenberg), which leads to discussions about painful romantic relationships, and the story of Leopoldo Pisanello (Roberto Benigni), who experiences being suddenly a rich famous person in Italy. Paparazzi come to invade his privacy and slowly he starts to realize the cost of fame.
"To Rome with Love" is characterized by adventure, dreamy moods and desire to experience life. The film possesses the same bizarre notes that Woody Allen has had for his entire career, but the final result is just not one of his greatest, maybe because it offers no particular excitement, but the concept story is humorous and charming.
