A delightfully funny Woody Allen flick that has all the hallmarks you'd expect in a movie of his but also elements of time travel and history and literature and art....sort of. You'll enjoy it if only for the scenes of Paris. Recommended by Brian

A delightful, engaging tale of an American in Paris who finds a unique way to embrace its magic. A young screenwriter, Gil, with romantic ideas about Paris in the 1920s is about to be married, to a shallow girl who dismisses his notions as silly dreams. One night strolling the Paris streets after a little too much wine, he finds himself picked up by strangers in a classic car and magically transported back in time. Here he encounters the legendary literary heroes that populate his fancy, and over various visits begins to befriend them and seek their advice. Back in the harsh daylight Gil slowly begins to realize that maybe his life isn't quite what he wants it to be. I love this movie. Paris is beautifully evocative and the various literary figures are depicted with affection and humor.

Made in 2011. A Woody Allen directed movie. A young American story writer re-evaluating his life and relationship in Paris in present day is transported back in time nightly as he choses to 1920's Paris, meeting many now (2011)famous artist ad writers of that period. F. Scott Fitzgerald, Pablo Picasso, etc and their wives and/or girlfriends. He talks with them in social settings and becomes their friends, thereby knowing about their real personal lives that he is able to tell their stories to his present day friends.

It was a "OK" delightful light comedy movie with a spin ending.
