Critic Reviews for Midnight in Paris
Mr. Allen's habitual romanticizing of the wealthy has grown stale and is especially problematic in this recession.
Breezy and casually profound, with a killer gimmick that keeps on giving.
It's attractive and easy to slip into, but [Allen] didn't put enough thought into the design, and it soon falls apart.
Audience Reviews for Midnight in Paris
With this charming tale about a dissatisfied young man who would rather live in the golden days of a long past époque than in the present, Woody Allen comes up with another adorable film and must have had a lot of fun putting those delightful witty lines in the mouth of his idols.
Another light but quite mysterious and powerful drama from Woody Allen, as simple as always.. The cast weren't full of A-list actor, but they're pretty convincing enough to me as they brought a good performance.. But overall, it's just another sweet romantic movie by Woody Allen.. Not one of his best but definitely worth to watch..
One of the most enjoyable and delightful of Allen's films to me. Wilson was great as Woody Allen as well.
Midnight in Paris Quotes
|Ernest:||I believe that love that is true and real, creates a respite from death. All cowardice comes from not loving or not loving well, which is the same thing. And then the man who is brave and true looks death squarely in the face, like some rhino-hunters I know or Belmonte, who is truly brave... It is because they make love with sufficient passion, to push death out of their minds... until it returns, as it does, to all men... and then you must make really good love again.|
|Paul:||Nostalgia is denial - denial of the painful present... the name for this denial is golden age thinking - the erroneous notion that a different time period is better than the one ones living in - its a flaw in the romantic imagination of those people who find it difficult to cope with the present.|
|Gil:||Adriana, if you stay here though, and this becomes your present then pretty soon you'll start imagining another time was really your... You know, was really the golden time. Yeah, that's what the present is. It's a little unsatisfying because life's a little unsatisfying.|
|Gert:||The artist's job is not to succumb to despair but to find an antidote for the emptiness of existence.|
