    [Woody] Allen brings his fantasy to life with such affection and joy that he transports us into his dream come true as a shared fantasy.

    A surprise treat from Woody Allen who has spent too much energy selling his films to mainstream audiences...

    Allen wants you to love Paris as much as Gil does and wants to show you the magic, the romance and the spark the city holds for him.

    The magic of Paris and the mystique of an era gone-by are the stars of Midnight in Paris - Woody Allen's best film for years

    Although the film suggests that we should enjoy the present for all it's worth, we have a great time enjoying this brief episode in a literate and beauty-filled past

    It's passable Woody waffle designed strictly for fans.

    Midnight In Paris is clever, watchable, mildly entertaining and quite amusing. Unfortunately -- after its initial gimmick -- it's also pretty predictable, and amounts to a lot less than the sum of its parts.

    So light and breezy you might not recognize this Paris postcard comes by way of the ever-relevant Woody Allen, who mixes time travel and nostalgia to delightful effect...

    It's not a bad film -- it just could have been a lot better.

    This combination of whimsy and romance is, for me, much more successful than Allen's previous European city film, Vicky Cristina Barcelona.

    His assembly of a beautiful montage of Parisian scenery that precedes the opening credits sets the unique tone Allen chases to perfection.

    Call it a fantasy or a rom-com or a satire or a travelogue - with this film, Allen's fearlessness declares he is past whatever label people place on his work. If you still feel the need, call it a love story - with a city, a memory, an art and a self.

    Beguiling, bewitching, enchanting, enthralling; Woody Allen has offered us a glimpse into his imagination, exorcised some (rather amiable) demons and shared with us one of the frothiest, funniest and most heart-warming films in years.

    Midnight In Paris radiates positivity with its call to live life to the full and in the now.

  • Philip French Observer [UK]
    Recent Allen films have tended towards the perfunctory, often looking like a succession of clumsy first takes. In Midnight in Paris he is relaxed and confident.

    A well put together exercise in the pleasures and pitfalls of nostalgia...

    Nostalgic and achingly beautiful, this is Allen's best since Husbands And Wives.

    It could have been shot down a country lane in Rutland, but Allen naturally preferred the charms, history and passions of Paris for a story that's both timeless and topical.

    Wilfully silly and heart-warming, this film is very easy viewing.
