35 - Midnight in Paris
Aaaa, Paris. The funny thing about Paris for me, is that I actually have visited there, but under all the wrong circumstances. I didn't want to be there, it was to touristish (and I hate that), and it wasn't during a moment of my life where I had any specific interest for cities such as this.
But now, ah.
If I went back to Paris, though, I would accept going with no one except alone. Or with my brother and sister. If I went back to Paris, I would go on the basis of discovering it the most natural way possible. I would go to the museums, but would spend as many hours as I wish looking at one painting. (How many hours I could spend investigating Renoir and Monet! Oh, how I adore their work.) I would stroll the streets at night until I got lost, I would drink wine at the feet of the Seine, I would lunch bagettes wherever I pleased. In my opinion, it's a city to love independantly.
And that is why I enjoyed Woody Allen's new movie, Midnight in Paris, so much. Because of its gorgeous cinematography, its beautiful plotline, etcetera. Honestly, it wasn't a brilliant movie. Cheesy at times, with few emotional effect over its viewers, the beauty of the movie lies on its shots of Paris during all times of day, on the beautiful ambientation. And, it's a movie made for me because it had something I love with a passion; nostalgia and literature. I can say no more than this without giving so much of it away.
Anyways, if you're looking for a light and entertaining movie for the weekend (not to say that you will be watching movies during Christmas weekend) I highly recommend this one.
Have a nice day!
