All the way through the 1970’s to 90’s, the moviemakers have captured the New York City as adoringly as Woody Allen. The director-writer move across the pond to the Europe that has begun with 2005’s ‘Match Point’ has served him well. Seemingly, rejuvenating Allen’s creative spirits and resulting in a string of mostly engaging films.

However, a charming, beautiful shot romantic comedy is the big bounce back from the last year’s flop ‘You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger’, this movie, ‘Midnight in Paris’ is one of the Allen’s top efforts of the millennium. This is also a strong contender for an Academy Award Best Screenplay nominations which would be his 15th such nominations.

The story of ‘Midnight in Paris’ projects an American couple who visits Paris. Owen Wilson played the role of Gil who is the Hollywood Screenwriter and harbors a wish that he had given honest literature more of a try; he works on a novel. His fiancée, Inez, played by Rachel McAdams just before returning to their state wedding, they were enjoying some time relaxing with Inez’s parents.

The couple-to-be will also meet up with a pedantic visiting professor and an old friend of Inez’s named Paul. The two reconnects and Gil, with the distracted mind, walks on the street of the City of Lights at night and he finds himself sucked back into 1920s Paris. He finds literary idols including Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott and falls sway to Adriana, who is a muse seemingly passed from famous artist to famous artist. The story then projects the life of Gil and Inez who becomes more affectionate to Paul and how Gil pen downs his novel.

All the performances of the movie are almost all superb. In the past, Wilson has evidenced a tendency to lean too heavily on his abundant, charisma that makes Gil’s romantic yearnings for days gone by seem real and informed by both the achievements and breakdowns of a professional career which we have never actually seen on screen.

‘Midnight in Paris’ definitely echoes back some to Allen’s own ‘The Purple Rose of Cairo’. The Cinematographer, Darius Khondji’s is awesome, and Allen highlights as the Paris beauty without turning his film into a flashy travelogue. Its all about you to give the rating of the film. What do you say?
