Watched Midnight in Paris today. The freaking surreal movie feels more like a play rather than a movie – with each position and arrangement having a significance.
And I couldn’t help thinking of Allo Allo whenever there’s an English speaking actor with a French accent. The scene with Adrien Brody as Salvador Dali just brought to mind a “IT IS I, LECLERC!” scene.
While the protagonist travels to the 1920s by getting into an old-style car, I can’t help but to wonder how he returns to the present to face his irritable girlfriend who is annoying and a complete distraction to his work.
Maybe the bigger puzzle is why rather than how.
Oh, and this chick appears in the movie – in a less scary form. A bit hard not to recognise the above scene if you’ve seen the movie.
