Trivia

2012 Guide Analysis: "Having done films in London, Barcelona, Paris, Allen moves on to Rome in his continuing European-based film series which has revitalised his career both critically and commercially. It began with acclaim for 2005's "Match Point", went on to an Oscar win for "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" in 2008, and more recently had his most successful film at the box office in the United States so far with last year's "Midnight in Paris".

This marks Allen's his first acting role since his turn in his second UK-based effort "Scoop" in 2006. This one focuses on four vignettes - a husband and wife (Allen & Judy Davis) who travel to Rome and meet the family of the Italian man their daughter is going to marry; a man (Roberto Benigni) who gets mistaken for a movie star; a Californian architect (Baldwin) visiting Rome with friends; and two newlyweds (Alessandro Tiberi, Alessandra Mastronardi) who visit some relatives but end up getting lost in the city.

Some thought the film was linked to Giovanni Boccaccio's "The Decameron" since the film was originally titled "The Bop Decameron" but Allen insists there is no connection. He has assembled an impressive mix of European and American talent for this feature which will be more of a straight up comedy than the romantic fantasy of 'Paris'. Sony Classics is slating this for a Summer release to try and match the box-office success of 'Paris'."
