Midnight in Paris (2011) review - trailer

Was there ever really a golden age? And if so, did they know then? If people can recognize a golden age when they are in? For Woody Allen, whose musical tastes and cultural run for the years 1920 and 30, these questions probably fueled countless daydreams. And now, out of all this thinking is "Midnight in Paris", a film that is in love and melancholy, and often hysterically funny.

Romance is integrated into the design. A writer who has always been nostalgic, today visits to Paris and falls through a wave in time: In a Paris street, a clock strikes midnight and a taxi up to 1920 discs. F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald are in, and take him to a party. Although at first the writer thinks that these are false Fitzgerald and is a costume party, he soon realizes that this is the real deal. Surrounded by music and styles you like and mingled with their idols and heroes of art.

Our hero of the film retains the break as easily as it should be. Meeting celebrities can be quite difficult, but compliance with the legends of the past - the eagerness to please is overwhelming. But there is always a touch of bitterness, too, because you look 20 years through the eyes of a modern person who is a world that is by definition the past. The past is always romantic, because he's gone, just like the future is always scary because you're away.

I have no idea at work here in Paris, as well. Allen takes the concept of life on the streets of the past and makes a literal "Midnight in Paris", so that everything that has ever happened in this city will never go away. You live in parallel worlds - which is sometimes how we feel when we visit major cities like Paris, Rome or New York.

Gil (Wilson) is able to go back and forth in his day, and '20s, so we need to hear the contrast. In 21 century, is engaged to a terrible game spoiled brat Rachel Mc Adams-no compromise. At the same time, his Rambles Night 20s, is in love with Adriana (Marion Cotillard), who is having an affair with Picasso. As was the case with Penelope Cruz "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" Woody Allen's door for the first time an American film, fire, and the Allure Cotillard has shown his work in Europe.

Meanwhile, between nostalgia and all the nostalgia, because this movie is hilarious Allen arrives to take an endless source of comedy: every time you laugh, laugh, or 10, simply introduces another writer or artist and play with our expectations . Every scene, for example, with the participation of Ernest Hemingway (Corey Stoll) is a cry, because Allen has to talk about how Hemingway wrote. There is even a joke Man Ray here. And if you know of Luis Bunuel's "Exterminating Angel", you're going to fall off the chair when Gil began to feed him ideas for the film.

Adrien Brody appears as a young Salvador Dali - a good cast. Alison Pill is very similar to Zelda, but Tom Hiddleston is too long, Scott Fitzgerald, who was only slightly larger than Woody Allen. But Kathy Bates is just as Gertrude Stein, as a substantial and maternal than you would like it to be.
