  • 1. Observer
    10 / 10

    Gorgeously photographed by Iranian-born Darius Khondji, the film is so breathtaking that it’s worth a ticket for the cinematography alone. See it, and you’ll want to book a weekend in Paris with your next tax refund.

    At "Midnight in Paris", the 76-year-old director shows that he is still the best in the world at sharp and funny so-called 'oneliners'. - Mats Johnson

    When Wilson finally gets passion in Coco Chanel's sidekick, he realizes that it is the same even in the 1920s, and the discussion about what one has and does not have is thoroughly unraveled. The film goes from cozy to philosophical. - Caroline Ringskog Ferrada-Noli

    The film is a thoroughly well-written, fun, charming and loving tribute to old art and literary heroes as well as romanticism itself and the lovely Paris. - Andreas Samuelson

    Owen Wilson is brilliant in the Allen role that the director has now realized he is far too old to play himself. - Fredrik Sahlin

    "Midnight in Paris" really feels like something a 75-year-old has pulled out of a dusty hiding place in order to give Allen fans a genuine reason to go to the cinemas. - Mats Bråstedt
