After the success of last year's "Midnight in Paris," filmmaker Woody Allen is back again with a European-set comedy, "To Rome With Love," in which he also stars.
With a cast featuring Alec Baldwin, Penelope Cruz, Ellen Page and others, the film portrays intertwining stories including that of an young man (Jesse Eisenberg) in the love triangle of his youth, a middle-aged man (Roberto Benigni) who becomes an overnight celebrity and an undertaker whose operatic voice only comes alive in the shower.
The movie opened in major U.S. cities last Friday and will expand around the United States in weeks to come. Allen talked with Reuters about the movie, his own singing abilities and why he never has family night at home.
