To Rome With Love

Woody Allen followed up his successful Midnight in Paris (2011) with another light-hearted excursion to a fabled, romantic city in Europe. Once again magical realism does its best to sell Rome as an irresistible place of history and culture where anything could happen. Among others, we meet an American retiree (Allen) who discovers an opera talent, a young man (Jesse Eisenberg) who tries to resist a sexy newcomer, and an ordinary Italian (Roberto Benigni) who becomes a celebrity. Pleasant, but very contrived; some of the vignettes are entirely forgettable.
