Known Trivia

  • Director Woody Allen attempted to shoot the film in Paris in 2006, but abandoned the project as it was too expensive.
  • Opening film at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, the second of Woody Allen’s films to be given this honor following Hollywood Ending at the 2002 Festival.
  • This is the first Woody Allen film to go through a digital intermediate, instead of being color timed in the traditional photochemical way. According to Allen, its use here is a test to see if he likes it enough to use on his future films.
  • The flea market scenes were filmed during the week when the market is normally closed.
  • Woody Allen stayed at the Hotel Le Bristol during filming – the same hotel where characters Inez and Gil stay.
  • Carla Bruni, who plays the tour guide at the Rodin Museum, was also the First Lady of France at the time of filming (she has been married to then-President of France Nicholas Sarkozy since February 2008).
  • When Zelda Fitzgerald suggests to Gil that they leave the party and go to Bricktop’s, she is referring to Chez Bricktop, the famous Paris nightclub run by Ada Bricktop Smith. Ada Smith appeared as herself in Woody Allen’s Zelig as one of the modern-day “witnesses”.
  • When casting for the movie, Woody Allen knew that he needed a french actress for Adriana so his first choice was Marion Cotillard. When Allen asked Cotillard to be a part of his movie, she was at home and talked with him for over an hour. When the conversation ended, Cotillard said: “Oh, my God, I’ve been talking to Woody Allen – that was Woody Allen’s voice!”
  • For Gil’s difficult and demanding fiancĂ©e, Inez, Woody Allen says he had Rachel McAdams in mind as he was writing. And when he pitched her the part, he told her, “It would be much more interesting for you to play this kind of character. You don’t want to go your whole life playing these beautiful girls. You want to play some bitchy parts. It’s much more interesting for you.”
  • When Woody Allen had enough budget to shoot the movie in 2006, he contacted his preferred cast but many were working on different projects and couldn’t commit. When Owen Wilson’s name came up for the leading role, Allen rewrote the character to fit.

Goofs: Anachronisms: When Gil and Adriana are walking in Pigalle among the prostitutes, modern 'bumpy' paving stones for blind people can be clearly seen as they cross the road.

Plot: While on a trip to Paris with his fiancé's family, a nostalgic screenwriter finds himself mysteriously going back to the 1920s every day at midnight. Full summary »  »

Story: Gil and Inez travel to Paris as a tag-along vacation on her parents' business trip. Gil is a successful Hollywood writer but is struggling on his first novel. He falls in love with the city and thinks they should move there after they get married, but Inez does not share his romantic notions of the city or the idea that the 1920s was the golden age. When Inez goes off dancing with her friends, Gil takes a walk at midnight and discovers what could be the ultimate source of inspiration for writing. Gil's daily walks at midnight in Paris could take him closer to the heart of the city but further from the woman he's about to marry.Written by napierslogs
