Midnight in Paris

This film about Paris as a center for artistic expression is a lovely tribute to the city: I wonder what made Woody Allen fall in such love with Paris?  All of his earlier movies are all about the beauty of Manhattan, but Paris now seems like his true love.  Owen Wilson does surprisingly well as the lead actor, although he isn't required to do much except act befuddled and stunned by meeting such historical figures as Hemingway and Gertrude Stein.  Overall, the film is worth watching, but there isn't a lot of substance in it.
