Midnight in Paris

Morning, guys! I know I’ve been posting lots of articles about movies lately, but don’t worry, I have other material too. Now I’m just trying to see if my wordpress application is working on the iPad. But let’s talk about the movie. I was literally crying at its start because of the images of Paris. I miss this city so much…! The film is about a writer making a journey in the past every midnight he spent in Paris. He gets to meet Dali, Fitzgerald and other artists, fall in love with an amazing woman and party a lot. In the ene he breaks up with that woman, but stays in Paris.

Storyline via imdb:
Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil The successful Hollywood screenplay writer Gil Pender is spending vacation in Paris with his fiancée Inez and her parents since his future father-in-law is doing a merging business with a French company. Gil is an aspirant writer that loves Paris, and dreams on living in the city after getting married with Inez. Further, the romantic Gil believes that the golden age of Paris was in the 20’s and he loves to walk on the rain through the streets of the City of Light. When the shallow Inez meets her former boyfriend, the pseudo-intellectual Paul with his girlfriend Carol, they spend sometime together visiting touristic places. In the night, they drink wine in a party and Paul invites the couple to go dancing with Carol and him. However, Gil prefers to return walking alone to the hotel. At midnight, an old car stops and the passengers invite him to go a party and sooner he realizes that he is back to the 20’s, where he meets his favorite writers, musicians and artists and lives his dream.
