4.0 out of 5 stars A nice little film, 8 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Midnight in Paris [Blu-Ray] (Blu-ray)
Woody Allen made some great films in the 70's. Bananas, Annie Hall, Manhatten and made some pretty good films through the 80's like Hannah And Her Sisters but since Sweet And Lowdown and Small Time Crooks he has hardly made a decent film despite making 1 film a year it had seemed that the once great director had lost the plot as it were but Midnight In Paris while not quite up there with his all time great films is a very pleasant surprise showing that Woody Allen has indeed still got it. Very well shot and very well acted with a great performance from Owen Wilson in the lead as a frustrated writer who while out walking in present day Paris at night suddenly finds himself in the Paris of the 1920's and rubbing shoulders with the likes of Ernest Hemmingway. Rest of the cast are also very good but it's Owen Wilson's film all the way who does an excellent impression of a young Woody Allen throughout who you could imagine if he had made this movie in the 70's or 80's would have been playing the lead himself. There's no explanation as to why he can suddenly find himself in the 1920's he just can and as long as you can swallow that and just go with it you should enjoy this fun film.

The reason he suddenly finds himself is a deux et machina (machine from God), which is a literary device which moves the plot along to a different level. It's a bit like a very posh chess move.Literary Theory: An Introduction
