In Woody’s Italian homage, middle-class Americans (Baldwin, Davis, Allen, Eisenberg) and middle-class Italians (Benigni, Alessandro Tiberi, Alessandra Mastronardi) converge to provide a multi-stranded montage on the pitfalls of infidelity, fame, culture-clash and newlyweds in crisis: all set against a picture-postcard backdrop of Rome.
More madness in the midday sun than Midnight In Paris. Baldwin, Cruz and Davis shine in a farce that overstretches itself into bellylaugh hits, but also some satirical misses.
