Midnight in Paris


Midnight in Paris
Woody Allen does Back to the Future and picks up numerous awards along the way. A successful screen writer is on holiday in Paris with his girlfriend and her parents. He's trying to switch to writing novels to fully express his talents. One night he accepts a lift in an old car and is transported back in time to the 1920s, where he meets a whole host of legendary art figures. He enjoys it so much that he goes back the next night, makes friends with one of Pablo Picasso's mistresses, and then has to decide whether to stay happily with her, or return to his own troubled present-day life.

What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Theresa Smith quote iconMagic and charm of nostalgic City of Lights
15
Box Office
Pete Hammond quote iconWoody Allen's time-travelling comedy Midnight In Paris is a valentine to Paris and an absolute delight.
18
Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconThere is nothing to dislike about it. Either you connect with it or not.
18
ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconMidnight in Paris does not challenge greatness, but it's a nice, low-key way to spend 100 minutes.
15
Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconMidnight in Paris is infused with seductive secrets no review should spoil. But for all the film's bracing humor and ravishing romance, there are also haunting shadows. That alone makes it a keeper.
18
ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconA delightful piece of fantasy escapism that should entertain both art house crowd and mainstream viewers if they give Allen and the track record of his previous films a second chance.

Tomatometer quote iconIt 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.
