Woody Allen's greatest cameo role

Paris-Manhattan is an absolutely wonderful and witty film, written and directed by Sophie Lellouche, about a lady by the name of Alice. Ever since her early teenage years Alice has been obsessed with the Hollywood actor; Woody Allen and even uses his films as therapy for the customers of her family owned pharmacy.

After years of being extremely unlucky in love and even losing a guy to her beautiful sister, Alice meets a rather unconventional security system installer, named Victor, who instantly falls in love with her and eventually tries to marry her. Alice is so wrapped up in her families dysfunction; her mother has a drinking problem, everyone suspects that her sisters husband is cheating on her and her niece is going out nightly with a mystery man, who buys her expensive gifts, drives a large car and has never been introduced to any of her family and after years of having imaginary conversations with a poster of him, all Alice wants to do is meet Woody Allen.

Starring Alice Taglioni, Patrick Bruel and Marine Delterme, with a cameo from Woody Allen himself, Paris-Manhattan is a brilliantly acted out film, with beautiful cinematography and a funny and intriguing plot, which won't disappoint, especially if you are either a Woody Allen fan or a French film enthusiast.

I thoroughly enjoyed this film with its highly relatable characters and its ability to engage its audience with its subtle twists and turns, which emulate real life situations, in which I found myself laughing one moment and crying the next.

Paris-Manhattan is rated PG for mild coarse language and themes.
