Midnight in Paris (♦♦♦♦)
This little movie is delightful, delicate and funny. Paris may be enchanting, but under the steady writing and direction of Woody Allen, Paris is simply magical. The music is lovely and transporting. The shots of Paris are breathtaking whether by day or night. Suddenly daydreaming doesn’t seem so bad…
I was particularly taken with the performance of Owen Wilson; it is refreshing and funny in a movie made for educated adults. In this film he has successfully come out of Ben Stiller’s shadow, acting besides heavyweights such as Marion Cotillard, Kathy Bates, Michael Sheen and Adrien Brody. Carla Bruni, France’s first lady, also co-stars.
Beautiful movie, worth every penny!
