For die-hard Allen fans or those looking for a movie that’s quirky and funny with something relevant to say.

Rated: 3/5 2012 107 min 13L Romantic comedy In this Woody Allen romcom, one of his highest-grossing films ever, the unconventional director has fun with his characters, while still making cynical observations about society.  The story, set in Rome, deals with four couples: Italians Leopoldo (Roberto Benigni) and Sofia (Monica Nappo) whose lives change overnight when Leopoldo becomes famous; newlyweds Antonio (Alessandro Tiberi) and Milly (Alessandra Mastronardi) who moved to Rome to create a life for  themselves; Americans Jack (JESSE EISENBERG) and Sally (Greta Gerwig), whose friend Monica (ELLEN PAGE) comes to visit; and tourist Hayley (Alison Pill) who decides to marry lawyer Michelangelo (Flavio Parenti) after a summer romance. Allen plays his usual off-beat character as Hayley’s dad, a retired opera director who takes an interest in Michelangelo’s shower-singing father (Fabio Armitialo).

For die-hard Allen fans or those looking for a movie that’s quirky and funny with something relevant to say.
