If you have ever wanted to live in Paris - either today or in the charming period of the 1920s, Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris is the perfect film for you.

Set (at the beginning) in modern-day Paris, Allen combines the charm of literature, art, culture, and time-travel into one charming Parisian experience.

Owen Wilson plays Gil Pender, a man who travels to Paris with his fiance Inez (Rachel McAdams) and her parents (Mimi Kennedy and Kurt Fuller). He is a Hollywood fluff screenwriter who's trying to write a more cultured piece of literature, but can't seem to find the inspiration he needs. During his time in Paris, the city becomes magical as Gil travels back in time and meets some of the greatest cultural icons of our time including, Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Gertrude Stein. Gil accepts this unlikely turn of events with a little shrug and endless wonder at what he's seeing.
This charming Parisian tale is heavy on the cultural references, but the art and literature junkie will find it charming and endearing -- full of subtle jokes and playful jabs at some of the greatest icons of the early 20th century. The film explores the concept of nostalgia and questions if it is just a abstract concept or if life really was better in a past era. Gil falls in love with the alluring Adriana (Marion Cotillard) who believes the era Gil has romanticized is boring and unromantic. She is must more interested in the late 1800s, thinking it is truly the best time to live.
This great romantic comedy celebrates a very influential time and examines the notion of true contentment living in one's own skin, all in the great "City of Lights" -- but most of all, it leaves viewers with a burning desire to visit the intoxicating Paris.

Woody Allen. Recomendation "Midnight in Paris", Woody Allen developed a perfect job grouping several respects. First is the set and costume work is amazing as it does to transport us to that beautiful city, colors, ages and textures. Second are the actors, a great success as managing director of situations. Third, and finally, the dialogues, enriched by a subtle French language, and rooted in an important time as the 20s. Finally, I recommend it, because it is a movie to dream you travel, you travel from city and time, just need to take the decision to spend 'midnight in paris' The vital topic of dissatisfaction could not miss Allen's repertoire. That character who stars in almost all his films, which is none other than himself in various incarnations, had to make room in his maniacal personality and hypochondriac that mana to psychologists is that we all suffer permanent disagreement with circumstances, good or bad, that we live. Any past was better, and in the future things will change. And so on, because then we are. Allen dissects the approach admirably, and does so consistently with that restless desire of the writer who plays magnificently Owen Wilson. Woody Allen does not believe the camera shake, or break records of shots per minute.
What it does is let the camera focus, and let the actors tell their story. Just move it makes leisurely tracking shots, played with the zoom, use the fewest possible planes. All this contributes to relaxation, to savoring, to enjoy a wonderful photograph, to immersion in the story.
