If I fall in love with fantasy.

Everyone said that "Midnight in Paris" was Woody Allen's first love poem to Paris, and the long shot that slowly opened was Paris in the rain. The abundant and spicy rain brought a blurred and sad romance to the city. No, it's not just dripping corner flower shops, Cole Porter's LET IT DO floating in the flea market, and more romantic, artistic.
There is nothing beautiful in the Floral Cafe, the beauty is only people's imagination: Hemingway stared at the people passing by with eagle eyes, ladies in high heels wearing exquisite jewelry, wearing bow ties. The gentleman walks in silence with a black umbrella, the bright costumes of the street corner entertainers, this is Paris "Feast of the Flow"; Francis Scott Fitzgerald takes his wife's hand and orders a cup of coffee, people Everyone said his wife was frivolous and beautiful, and the gentleman had a sly light in his sensitive eyes, and he saw the man sitting in the corner, and his expression was as fragile and tough as his Gatsby; Pablo Picasso passed by, no one knew how many mistresses he had, and no one would condemn the genius, who is always easily forgiven, especially in Paris where pleasure and beauty trumped morality ...
The protagonist Jill boarded the carriage leading to the golden age in Paris at midnight, and was lost in the past and reality, obsessed with the dim lights of the old days and the jazz swaying in the banquet hall. How can you not get lost, Hemingway, the Fitzgeralds, Stein, these heroes in history have walked in front of him one after another, and even communicated with him about literary creations, what an incredible dream. Seeing those giants, the wonder and excitement in the chest is almost irrational, not to mention the more ancient and beautiful Paris in the night, no one wants to wake up from the illusion.
"Midnight in Paris" is nothing but a dream that can't be woken up. There is no need for a plot, just the camera slowly sweeping through the golden age of Paris is enough. The lens dyed Paris a transparent and sweet honey color, and the bright lights turned Paris into brilliance, full of calm and frivolous contradictions. From the past to the present, from the golden age of art to the declining age of literature - this era when poets are no longer worshipped and no longer fanatical, the huge contrast makes those sensitive people more eager for the traces of romance left in Paris.
In the eyes of the world, Paris is still frivolous and full of materiality, but it is undeniable that it is the multiple temperaments that people endow Paris with. If you want to shop, come on, come to Paris, isn't the Champs-Elysees a shopping paradise? If you are eager to find the romance of the old times, come, come to Paris, whether it is the yellowed "Snows of Kilimanjaro" in old bookstores, or the "Destroyed Angels" copied by street performers, these are you The clues, walk in Paris at midnight, create a dream.
