On a spur of the moment, I went with a friend to see Woody Allen's newest film Midnight in Paris. It was very charming and not so angstridden as many of his films often are (oh, yes, there was one angst theme in there - wouldn't be Woody Allen otherwise ;-)) but the film is easy viewing.
It also managed well to portray the romantic picture we all have of Paris in our imagination.
It is a sort of time travel drama and all the name-dropping was really funny and made you want more!
I admit I was entertained even if I felt a little cheated at the end.
It was as if something was missing and I can't put my finger on it.
But it made me want to go back to Paris
- particularly in the rain.
