About The Film
A beautiful but loveless thirty-something’s obsession with Woody Allen is put to the test by a gallant Frenchman in this delightful romantic comedy and surefire crowd-pleaser.
Under constant pressure to marry from her increasingly anxious Jewish parents, flaxen-haired Alice (an adorable Alice Taglioni) fills prescriptions alongside her father at their family-owned pharmacy. Rather than dating, she seeks refuge in the world of Woody Allen, engaging in imaginary conversations and surrounding herself with images of the iconic filmmaker, continually quoting his trademark witty Woody-cisms, and even prescribing her customers DVDs of his movies to help alleviate their ailments. Will a chance encounter with handsome Victor (the effortlessly debonair Patrick Bruel) finally bring her a winning suitor and happy ending?
Playfully poking fun at the ongoing French love affair with the New York auteur, PARIS-MANHATTAN affectionately references a slew of indelible movie moments in a breezy and jazz-infused package from writer-director Sophie Lellouche.
