de Sophie Lellouche
The eternal wisdom of Woody Allen informs Paris-Manhattan debut writer/director Sophie Lellouche’s delicious and charming romantic comedy about a young woman whose choices in life and love are shaped by the philosophies of her favorite filmmaker.
Idealistic pharmacist Alice (The Valet’s divine Alice Taglioni) is totally obsessed with the works of Mr Allen. She surrounds herself with images of him, continually quotes lines from his films and even prescribes her customers DVDs of his movies to help alleviate their ailments; it’s little wonder she’s still single in her thirties! Alice’s increasingly concerned Jewish parents hope to cure her fixation by setting her up with a handsome French gentleman (Patrick Bruel), but even he quickly realises that he’s no match for the man of her dreams…
Playfully poking fun at France’s on-going love affair with the acclaimed New York auteur, Paris-Manhattan affectionately references a slew of his classic movies, and is a fun and brazenly nostalgic comedy for anyone ever bitten by the Woody bug, or the City of Lights… or both.Watch Trailer
