Midnight in Paris is the name of the latest Woody Allen movie located in, and revolving around the city of Paris. I’m going to see it next Monday at the Barbican cinema, my favourite cinema outside of Paris itself, in London. IMDB say about the plot:
A romantic comedy about a family traveling to the French capital for business. The party includes a young engaged couple forced to confront the illusion that a life different from their own is better. On vacation in Paris, a married man who is somewhat of a killjoy slowly falls in love … with the city itself.
Midnight in Paris has received critical acclaim. Rotten Tomatoes reports that 92% of critics have given the film a positive review based on 149 reviews, with an average score of 7.9/10. Among Top Critics it received 95% positive reviews with an average rating of 8.2. The critical consensus is: “It may not boast the depth of his classic films, but the sweetly sentimental Midnight in Paris is funny and charming enough to satisfy Woody Allen fans”
The film has been out for a few months now but I didn’t manage to catch it on the first mainstream release so I’m looking forward to catching up in the next few days. Have you seen Midnight in Paris yet? No spoilers please, but what did you think of the movie, as a fan o not of Woddy Allen films in general, and of course as a lover of Paris breaks whatever the movie says.
