"I had a particularly enjoyable experience shooting in Paris," stated Allen. "It's something that I hope I get a chance to do again. I always look forward to having my films distributed by Sony Classics because they have great sensitivity toward my work and I appreciate it." Said SPC's Michael Barker and Tom Bernard: Midnight in Paris is Allen "at his most magical."
