To Rome, with Love
It was pleasant to watch, but really kind of nothingish in the end. Four separate stories set in the city, centering on love, fame and folly. As always in his movies, there was an excellent cast, but unfortunately no performance really stood out, and no character was particularly interesting. Alec Baldwin was fun, as was Roberto Begnini. But the rest of the actors didn't seem to bring much to the fairly thin material they had to work with.
I guess I thought it had a rushed, unserious quality. Like I said, it was pleasant to watch, but there just wasn't much depth or anything really to respond to or think about. All surface..
