Wonderful and fun. Beautiful work.,
This review is from: Midnight in Paris (Blu-Ray) (ENGLISH AUDIO) (DVD)"That Paris exists and anyone could choose to live anywhere else in the world will always be a mystery to me..."
Such a sentiment has never been more true than when expressed in Woody Allen's latest offering. The quality of his more recent films has notably declined from his output of the 70's, but Allen has returned with a wonderful, funny story and solid characters. Owen Wilson is Gil, a Hollywood screenwriter seeking a new career as a literary writer. Tagging along to Paris with his snobby fiancee and her parents, he discovers a decadent and romantic world he has always wanted to be a part of - literally.
Although transporting characters to a previous time is a difficult and often perilous move, the film proves that nearly any idea can materialise nicely in the hands of a talented and knowledgeable director. To carry off the trick plot line with ease, strong character actors are a must and Allen has managed to secure the cream of the miniscule, modern Hollywood crop.
