DVD & Blu-ray review: To Rome with Love (12)
Woody Allen DVD/ Blu-ray (112mins)
Friday 15 February 2013
Woody Allen's latest very much feels like a bunch of half-baked ideas the auteur has been working on since he started out: a mortician who can only sing opera sublimely in the shower, an ordinary man (Roberto Benigni) who is thrust into the spotlight for no good reason.
However, there's enjoyment to be had in the strongest story, of Jesse Eisenberg's architect falling for his girlfriend's unreliable best friend (Ellen Page, playing the Diane Keaton role, sort of). No great insights or gags here, but it drifts along prettily enough.
