Woody Allen travels to Rome for his latest film, the title of which was changed from ‘The Bebop Decameron’ surely as a reaction to the commercial success of the New York filmmaker’s last picture, ‘Midnight in Paris’. Here, Woody interweaves four separate stories concerning both inhabitants of the city and visitors. There’s a worker who wakes up to find himself famous. There’s an architect who revisits the street he lived on as a boy. There’s a couple honeymooning in the city. And there’s a funeral director who likes to indulge his singing talent in the shower. Woody himself appears in the film, and the mixed Italian and American cast includes Roberto Benigni, Penélope Cruz, Alec Baldwin, Greta Gerwig, Ellen Page and Jesse Eisenberg, proving once again that no-one has the power to pull in a big-name cast for a relatively small film like Woody does.
