I have so many words for this film. And yet none of them do justice to the marvellous piece of art that is Midnight in Paris. Firstly, Woody Allen is just a genius. To work with him one day would be so incredible. But to even watch one of his films feels like a special privilege. What a beautiful mind he has, to create something so magical. He had me captivated from start to finish.
Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald. We’re the Fitzgerald’s.
Owen Wilson carried the film gracefully and without fault. His desire to live in a time before his own was charming, and to go on the journey there with him was exciting. Marion Cotillard, what can I say? She is divine. I can’t imagine a more stunning actress. Marion has this unmatched charisma that just sucks you in and grabs hold of you. She’s good. Really good.
I love how a story can come along and whisk you away for awhile. When it reignites a belief in magic and leaves your heart feeling full and happy.
So thank-you to a superb cast; thank-you Owen, thank-you Marion and thank-you Woody.
Paris is the most beautiful in the rain.
