Quirky Woody Allen is at it again. This romantic comedy is about a couple, engaged to be married, who tags along with her parents on a trip to Paris.

Gil (played by Owen Wilson) plays a dissatisfied Hollywood screenwriter. He falls for Paris and wants to move there while fantasizing about the 1920's, which he thinks is a better era than the present. He thinks it was the good ole days and a much more alluring time. Don't we always seem to think that?

Gil travels back in time. He is writing a novel and gives his manuscript to Gertrude Stein (played by Kathy Bates) for critique. Woody Allen brings into the picture Ernest Hemingway, T.S. Eliot, Pablo Picasso and Cole Porter.

There are lots of shots of the Paris landscape and bistros. Gil always leaves at midnight to stroll the streets of Paris and that is when his adventure begins.

Carla Bruni (wife of French President Nicolas Sarkozy) played the tour guide. Rachel McAdams plays Inez, the finace of Gil.

Javier Méndez served as executive producer of the movie. Letty Aronson, Jaume Roures and Stephen Tenenbaum worked as producers. The music was written by Stephane Wrembel. Raphaël Benoliel, Helen Robin and Jack Rollins were co-producers of the project.

Woody Allen fans rejoice! This movie is considered one of his best.

OVERALL RATING: B
