2013 Charlotte Jewish Film Festival

Saturday, March 9th

Film: Paris-Manhattan Venue: Regal Ballantyne Village Stadium 5 Time: 7:30pm


Alice is a single Jewish 30-something living in Paris who is totally obsessed with Woody Allen: she constantly quotes his work, recommends his films to customers and even has conversations with him (via his poster on her wall).

Writer/Director Sophie Lellouche uses the film to playfully poke fun at France’s ongoing love affair with Allen and affectionately references many of his classic movies. This charming romantic comedy is more than a loving tribute; it feels like it could have been written and directed by Woody Allen himself.


"Utterly endearing. As bubbly and lively as Paris in spring.” - Le Figaro

“A charmer. There’s something special here, with humour at every turn. The dialogue sparks, with extra Woody Allen zing. This a handsome film that makes you laugh - one to enjoy.” - Filmink

“Takes the rom-com genre and turns it on its head. Lellouche’s film is charming and witty and basically the antithesis of the Hollywood formula that has turned this genre into a predictable sappy goop. The character of Alice is someone you immediately fall in love with and care about, despite her different takes on life, which is what makes her so endearing.” - Artinfo

“A charming and likeable treat. Sweet, fun and chic.” - Time Out London
