The eternal wisdom of Woody Allen informs PARIS-MANHATTAN, the delicious and charming romantic comedy about a young woman whose choices in life and love are shaped by the philosophies of her favourite filmmaker.

Idealistic pharmacist Alice (the adorable Alice Taglioni) is totally obsessed with the movies of Woody Allen. She continually quotes lines from his films, engages in imaginary conversations, and even prescribes her customers his classic works 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 ongoing love affair with the acclaimed New York auteur, PARIS-MANHATTAN affectionately references a slew of indelible movie moments, and is a fun and brazenly nostalgic comedy for anyone ever bitten by the Woody bug, or the City of Light… or both.

Regular price $7.00

"There's a sprinkling of magic in Lellouche's debut feature... delightful." Louise Keller, URBAN CINEFILE.
