Rome. Paris. London. Barcelona. Woody Allen's been globe-trotting for years now, settling in a new place every few years and sending back an annual dispatch from his latest tourist hotspot.
With To Rome with Love, it's even more evident: from the traditionally chocolate boxy shots of the major landmarks to the horrifically stereotyped Italian population, the whole thing feels like an awkward postcard. The kind of message from an old uncle who used to write really witty travel diaries but has since forgotten how many stamps to lick and stick on the front.
It's pretty good and still rather amusing, but you know somewhere in your drawer is a better missive. One with even more depressing comments about the futility of existence.
Want to recreate that Woody Allen buzz when you go on holiday? Try sending back one of these Woody Allen postcards...
To Rome with Love is out in UK cinemas today. Head this way to read our To Rome with Love review.
