Woody Allen's Beautiful Homage To A Magical City

Surprisingly bad

Four unrelated vignettes involving tourists, newlyweds, and quirky locals play out in Rome.  The characters are neither sympathetic, likable, interesting, nor memorable.  The plots are like fantasy daydreams but still manage to be incredibly tiresome.  I was so glad when the movie was over.

On the plus side, the photography is exquisite.  Rome is filmed in a warm, golden light that makes it look like a fairytale city for lovers.  Some very good actors get stuck with trite material and writer/director/star Woody Allen is still playing the same loser character he's been doing for forty years. 

Terrible movie.

And by that I mean that he has followed up a genuine hit with a complete misfire. This is Allen’s pattern …

Star Rating:         To Rome with Love is a bad movie, and yet it employs exceptional talent and showcases many of writer/director Woody Allen’s best loved cinematic hallmarks. It’s constructed as four vignettes that are not only bound by nothing apart from the location but also go nowhere meaningful in and of themselves. Lacking a real plot to string them together, the best one can say is that it’s essentially a series of concepts that weren’t …
