Aroview: High class whimsy from Woody Allen with Woody-surrogate honours going this time to Owen Wilson as a frustrated hack screenwriter magically transported back to the 1920's while holidaying in Paris.
A paean to nostalgia as well as the city of Paris, this has Woody's abiding one-line zingers pinned onto a bemusing concept steeped in artistic anxiety, but its charms are mitigated by Woody's now flagrantly passé potshots at cultural philistines, poseurs and Republicans. Owen Wilson seems too, past his prime, making room for Adrien Brody as Salvador Dali to steal the show in a terrific cameo.
