Great Beauty

Visually it is magnificent. If you love Rome, you will go nuts. I would've edited out about 20 minutes. There are also a couple of plot twists that go unexplained that were bothersome. But the lead is excellent as is the supporting cast. Well, worth the trip. KK

3rd rate Fellini

Yes Rome is beautifully photographed. The story (such as it is) is lightly warmed over Fellini 81/2 without any of the artistry of the original. Rent the original - not only is it a much better film, but the time and place depicted (not to mention the characters) are much more interesting and original. Got to wonder why they even bothered?

Rome Abstracted

By j2-cincity

Seeing Rome without hordes of tourists is like seeing the gorgeous landmarks in abstract. Marvelous. Wild opening scene party and then, unfortunately, all downhill. Not a word of dialogue that was interesting or clever. Meandering meaningless plot. Walked out after an hour. Sorrrry.

For middle-aged lovers of Rome

This is not a film for teenagers or anyone who does not recognize scenes of Rome - for others, it is a great beauty.
