Oh my, how divine. I fell in love with the film as soon as the first scene started, long before the true plot even set in. Midnight in Paris is just that magical.

Owen Wilson - whom I've never really cared for otherwise - fits the role perfectly, almost as if he doesn't even realize he's within a film. Everyone portrayed their characters so fantastic and mystical that I couldn't even believe it was the past. Amazing.

I haven't quite decided if the cinematography was extremely well done or if Paris is just that beautiful - I'm sure it's both. Wonderful colors of rich, vibrant hues that only added to the costumes, architecture, and art. It was almost as if the film was a largely celebrated painting with the most astounding music played in the background.

Midnight in Paris is by far one of the most original and creative films I've had the pleasure of seeing. An instant favorite that I wish would never end. History is charmer, just as this film. Another timeless one (literally!) from Woody Allen!

Brody's Dali was my favourite part of the film as well - that and Marion Cotillard looking stunning, as always. But I agree with the previous comment - there was a subtlety missing, and the dialogue was often very clumsy and typically "stagy". And although it was extremely charming it felt quite thin - a nice little idea expanded almost to breaking point. I hated the way Allen wrote explanations for all the artists and writers, as if he were expecting his audience to be far less intelligent than they are and not able to enjoy working things out for themselves. The T.S. Eliot meeting (you mean "The" Thomas Stearnes Eliot, writer of Prufrock?) and the Bunuel (here's an idea for a film...) moments were cringeworthy. Nowhere near as good as Vicky Christina Barcelona - the last Allen I saw at the cinema - but pleasant enough.

I can imagine people bashing this movie to death for being too simplistic - some characters were 2 dimentional (Gil's girlfriend and her father for example) and you can tell how the movie is going to end judging from the first five minutes. Despite that it's a very relatable film and it's all that matters. If you are a romantic and/or if you love Paris and/or if you are interested in art, then I can't imagine you not loving the main character. If you're not, then perhaps this movie will wake your inner romantic. If not, then you'll be sleeping through the whole film. I personally enjoyed it a lot.

Pretty weird to see Owen Wilson act like Woody Allen with the stammer and stutter and all...

Incredible! Unforgettable! Memorable! A perfect movie for who loves ART! So many references from the past, you really feel you living in Paris Belle Époque. Nice acting and incredible cinematography, Paris is even more beautiful that it's already in real life.. To understand the movie you must know Hemingway, Dalí, Picasso, Fitzgerald, Buñuel, and so on... Definitely a movie to watch more than one time..

Fine movie. I was surprised how "complicated" the story was, generally a well written screenplay. I like all the different social situations. The funniest thing is that the character of Owen Wilson is quite similar to the regular, younger charatcer og Woody Allen in his earlier movies. I did sort of see Allen somewhere behind Wilson.


Highlight: Funny, like in most Allen films. An it has some great dialouges, where you really can find some meaning.

Like what sacmersault said, something about the film just gave me a mental orgasm, hard to explain but just a really enjoyable film experience for me.

Owen Wilson, like Allen in earlier films, does a good job as the only unsettled, self-scrutinizing player in a world full of characters. The way Allen handles the "time travel" aspect too is so elegantly done it feels nothing but natural. Paris is unsurprisingly beautiful, can't wait to see what Allen does with Rome.

I know ALOT of people who loath Woody Allen and I made all of them watch this. They all came up to me telling what a wonderful film they just saw. It really is brilliant.

First Woody Allen movie I liked

Excellent. I love that someone criticized the film not being subtle; A films where a character announces that he just had an epiphany. Or that it has no suspense. Its a feel good film! It lacks suspense because its not that kind of film.

It's a delicious and movable feast of contagiously warm characters, it's a treatise on creativity, art, love and the city of lights. Let's call it luminous. Let's call it one of Allen's best.

(Try not to read the reviews before you see this one as to not spoil the delightful surprise, but expect a Woody-Allen-level of wit and wisdom.)
