A premiere of Woody Allen's latest film, "To Rome With Love,"opened the Los Angeles Film Festival in Los Angeles Thursday night.

The ensemble comedy is Allen's follow-up to his highly successful film "Midnight in Paris" for which he won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.

"To Rome with Love" opened to mixed reviews in Europe, according to Reuters, but Sony Pictures Classics is hoping Americans will embrace Allen's latest ode to the Italian city.

While introducing the film at the festival, Allen told the audience, "If you like the picture, I'm thrilled. If you hate it and think it was a waste of time coming, don't let me know 'cause I get depressed easily."

He also paid tribute to the film's ensemble cast, which includes Penelope Cruz, Alec Baldwin, Jesse Eisenberg, Ellen Page and Alison Pill. Cruz and Pill, who have both worked with the director before in "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" and "Midnight in Paris" respectively, were at the premiere.

None of the film's male cast members were there. Allen joked to the audience, according to Entertainment Weekly, "I would have played Jesse's role if I was 50 years younger, but there's nothing I can do about that."

"To Rome with Love" opens in the U.S. theaters for a limited release June 22.
