Gil dreams of being back in Paris in the 1920's--when life was simpler and some of the best authors and artists were alive. As the clock strikes 12 each night, his dreams come true and he is transported back in time and finds himself in the company of some his art and literary heroes.
I enjoyed the film and could really relate to Owen Wilson's character. I felt his pain every time his fiance and her parents made a negative comment about his writing (and there were many). I wanted to throw something at the screen any time they appeared (but I am not a very good aim and probably would've hit the people in front of me on the head...).
The movie was billed as a romantic comedy, but I saw it more as just a light comedy that focused on Gil, his passion for writing and his quest to be true to himself. I would recommend the film to anyone who enjoys art, classic literature and films set in Paris.
