Woody Allen's upcoming film "To Rome with Love"

Once again, Woody Allen turns his attention away from his beloved Manhattan as he sets up his upcoming romantic comedy in Rome, Italy.

Woody Allen’s obsession with New York City has been highlighted throughout his cinematic career, with his making of movies like Manhattan and Annie Hall.

However, in the last decade or so, the director has focused his attention on other famous cities around the world, with films like Vicky Cristina In Barcelona and Midnight In Paris.  Now,  Allen’s backpacking adventure continues with his newest film, To Rome With Love.

“Low-brow” art forms can be a powerful advocacy tool, the head of a pro-Israel artists group told The Algemeiner on...

The film is modern day take on Giovanni Bocaccio’s medieval tale, The Decameron, a collection of erotic love stories which inspired a series of other films, including the 1962 making of Boccaccio ’70, in which both Federico Fellini and Vittorio De Sica collaborated.

The cast of Allen’s new film includes Alec Baldwin, Jesse Eisenberg, Ellen Page, Penelope Cruz, Roberto Benigni and Allen himself.

“It’s a broad comedy, not a romantic comedy, of various tales interwoven. I’m one of them, in one of them. All the parts are quite significant, there are no cameos. There just happened to be a part that I could play. I can’t play the love interest anymore, which is tremendously frustrating. My wife and myself go to Rome because our daughter is going to marry an Italian boy that she met there, and we go over to meet him and meet his family, and what ensues. The film is very broadly funny,” Allen said about the upcoming movie.

The film premiered in Italy on April 13th and will be released in the United States on June 22nd. To watch the official trailer, click below.
