Woody Allen has revealed he began shooting movies in European cities because he couldn't afford to do so in New York.

However, speaking in the northern Spanish city of Oviedo, the film director added that he finds Manhattan poses fewer limitations than European cities, where more tailoring of the story is required to fit the location.

Allen was in Spain to attend a premiere of his last film, You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger in the nearby town of Aviles.

The film, shot in London, stars Naomi Watts, Josh Brolin and Antonio Banderas.

On Monday, Allen, who is accompanied by his wife and one of his daughters, took part in a promotional video for the Asturias region, known for its stunning mountains and coastal scenery.
