Midnight In Paris

We saw “Midnight in Paris” this afternoon.  This is the best movie Woody Allen has done in years.

I’m not an Owen Wilson fan, but he was very good in this film.  Marion Cotillard was luminous.  Every time I see her, I am just amazed by both her talent and her beauty.  There were too many excellent supporting performances to mention.  Beautifully done.

And Paris.  This film is a love song to Paris and Allen shows her at her best.  After seeing this film, I can’t wait to go back there again…I need to go back there again.

And as an added benefit, which isn’t clear in the trailer, there is a time travel element.  You also get to experience Paris in the 1920’s with Hemingway, Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, Salvador Dali, Cole Porter and Gertrude Stein, among others.  And a brief visit to La Belle Époque Paris with Talouse Lautrec and the crowd at Maxims.

If you love Paris, or you love Woody Allen at his best, you will love this film.

It was wonderful.
