I’ve been a big fan of the film Midnight in Paris since I saw it in the theater when it came out in 2011. This was one of those rare films that I’ll see in a theater more than once. I saw it a couple of times at the movies and at least a dozen times at home since.
The film is about how we tend to live in the past and think things were much better back then, whenever “back then” might be–it is always different for someone else.
I highly recommend you find a way to watch it, if you haven’t already, and until you do, I want to leave you with this beautiful opening scene. It functions like an overture and is composed of some of the most beautiful movie footage of Paris I’ve ever scene.
And doesn’t the music accompany the film footage brilliantly? Or is it the film footage that accompanies the music?
