Roughly six months ago, I reviewed Woody Allen’s “To Rome with Love,” which opened the Los Angeles Film Festival at L.A. Live in downtown Los Angeles. There in support of the iconic director’s latest effort were costars Penelope Cruz, Greta Gerwig, Alessandra Mastronardi, Simona Caparrini and Alison Pill.
Allen, who was in great spirits for the film’s debut, jokingly told the eager audience before the film began: “I had fun (making the film). I was there for three months eating pasta, working with beautiful actresses and scintillating leading men. It was great for me.”
Then Woody Allen conveyed his gratitude to the sold out theater with more words of wit. “Thank you very much for showing up tonight. If you liked the picture, I’m thrilled,” he said. “If you hate it, and you think it was a waste of time coming, don’t let me know, because I get depressed easily.”
Thankfully, “To Rome with Love” is very charming and worthy of your time.
