Woody Allen will have released at least one movie (on some occasions, even two) on a consecutive annual basis for the past 35 years, once To Rome with Love hits theaters this summer. Regardless of your feelings about the quality of the man’s output overall, you have to give him props for sheer dedication and commitment to his art.

To Rome with Love previously went under such names as Nero Fiddled and The Bop Decameron, before Allen settled on a comparatively generic (but more universally-relatable) title. As you will see with the actual trailer, though, there’s no mistaking this film for being anything but the Woodmeister’s handiwork.

Similar to every Allen production released over the past several decades, To Rome with Love features a star-studded cast that includes Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network), Ellen Page (Inception), Alec Baldwin (30 Rock), Greta Gerwig (Greenberg) and Roberto Benigni (Life is Beautiful), and such familiar faces to the Allen-verse as Oscar-nominee Judy Davis (Husbands and Wives), Oscar-winner Penélope Cruz (Vicky Cristina Barcelona) and Alison Pill (Midnight in Paris). Allen himself will also appear in front of the camera, for the first time in six years.

Check out the trailer for To Rome with Love (followed by an official synopsis):

“To Rome with Love” is comprised of four separate vignettes and tells the story of a number of people in Italy—some American, some Italian, some residents, some visitors—and the romances and adventures and predicaments they get into.

Really, do we need to break this flick down any further? If you generally enjoy watching Allen’s comical contemporary yarns about the messy lives of dysfunctional people, who all tend to ramble on like the filmmaker – set against scenic European backdrops and locales, as photographed by Allen’s Midnight in Paris cinematographer, Darius Khondji - then this movie is for you. All others need not apply.

To Rome with Love begins a limited theatrical release in the U.S. on June 22nd, 2012.

  1. Which makes me wonder… is there anyone out there that would go into the “All others need not apply” ?????

    And having Roberto Benigni on this! I’m pretty sure the “others” category just shrunk a bit more! :P

  2. I’m not a big Woody Allen fan.

    Last year i was at the theater and I missed the showing for the movie i wanted to see and ended up seeing “Midnight in Paris”. Turned out to be one of my favorite movies last year!

    so now that this one also looks par with “MiP”, I am seriously considering it. Keep the Euro-tour going, it seems to be working

  3. Gaaaa!! I haven’t seen a Woody Allen flick in so long!! And what an awesome cast!! This movie is one I will enjoy watching on the big screen and on my TV when I get the DVD.

  4. Man!! I keep hoping Woody Allen does another “Match Point”-like film. He’s been making these same type of films since the seventies!!

    Why not take a chance now, when the critics and the public already love you, and make a completely different film!

  5. I LOVE IT!!!!!

  6. After Midnight In Paris, Allen can do no wrong.

  7. I think this may be better than Midnight in Paris

  8. Each time I hear or see Woody Allen, I just keep thinking about him marrying his adopted asian daughter…. Ewwwwwwwwww

    • Are you really so brainwashed by Mom, Dad and Apple Pie?

  9. As long as he stays away from London i’m fine. I just don’t think he ‘gets’ that city.

  10. Midnight In Paris is my favorite of 2011.
    I went in expecting another ho-hum Allen movie but from begininng to end I had a smile on my face and after watching it again this weekend the same thing happened.
    So I’ll say it will be hard for this film to compare to MiP but that doesn’t mean I’m less excited.
