MEMORIES floated through my mind this weekend after watching the latest Woody Allen film, “To Rome With Love”. Set in the romantic city of Rome, the story shifts back and forth between romantic comedy and satirical farce where the intertwining stories of a worker who wakes up to find himself a celebrity (Roberto Benigni), an architect (Alec Baldwin) who takes a trip back to the street he lived on as a student, a young couple on their honeymoon (Alessandra Mastronardi), and a frustrated opera director (Woody Allen) who has a talent for discovering talented singers. In Woody Allen fashion, its sharp, quirky and quick witted. Thematically, he explored delusion, lost dreams, obsession, celebrity, fear, lost souls and regret. I adore Woody Allen and admit a mild obsession. Alright, a huge obsession with his work. Weather it be his films or short humour pieces he always examines the obscure and the reality of relationship, character and life. A few of the performances I didn’t buy and am curious to know who else was in the lead for them, but the ones I did enjoy trumped all.
