Midnight in Paris.. - Have you ever thought, Why was I not alive when Michalangelo was here. How did Leanardo Davinci look like? I should have been there to read the fresh copy when Sujatha shared his thoughts through books! The protagonist of Midnight in Paris, Gil, feels the same way. He thinks nobody here is capable of proof reading his fiction other than Mr. Hemingway. For us it may not be possible, but Gil hits good luck. When he's lost his way when going to back the hotel he's staying, at midnight, a group of people arrive and take him to a party. Bingo! there is Mr. Flitzgerald and in turn he introduces Gil to Hemingway and Picasso! But when Gil meets Adriana, his mind travels away from art and goes into love. They both pass time, share valuable moments and suddenly travels a generation back as Gil came there! What happens then fills the climax.
What's magical about the movie is not its basic story line but the in depth message it portrays. You wish to be in past and feels that would have been a golden time. What if your models in the past think the same way! So it's an endless series of concentric circles and never ends. Present is not only a compulsion but a pleasant gift. Enjoy it!
