Midnight in Paris: Food ‘n Flix Announcement

Welcome to May’s Food ‘n Flix round and one of my favorite movies:  Midnight in Paris.   I am not a huge Woody Allen fan, but I do love this film.

As the strains of some vintage French jazz play in the opening of this film, the viewer is treated to the quintessential beautiful city:  the Eiffel Tower, tree-lined promenades, cityscapes, the Moulin Rouge, the Arc de Triomphecruising along the Seine, quaint street scenes, Notre Dame, outdoor cafes, the exterior of Fouquet’s, the Louvre, the rain…you know, everything that makes Paris magical.

“There’s no city like this in the world…there never was.”  (Gil)

Please join me in this fun film, one that seems to make magic believable.   If you feel like you were born after your time, you will relate to this movie.   Perhaps you suffer from “Golden Age Living.”   Can you imagine traveling back in time and being an expat in Paris—partying with Zelda and Scott, sharing a drink with Hemingway, being invited into Gertrude Stein’s salon…?  Maybe you prefer the Belle Époque period.  You will get a glimpse of that era as well and meet Talouse-Latrec, Degas and Gauguin.

I will admit that you will see more famous dead people in this film than food, but there is lots of wine!  🙂
