Gil and Inez travel to Paris as a tag-along vacation on her parents' business trip. Gil is a successful Hollywood writer but is struggling on his first novel. He falls in love with the city and thinks they should move there after they get married, but Inez does not share his romantic notions of the city or the idea that the 1920s was the golden age. When Inez goes off dancing with her friends, Gil takes a walk at midnight and discovers what could be the ultimate source of inspiration for writing. Gil's daily walks at midnight in Paris could take him closer to the heart of the city but further from the woman he's about to marry.

Did You Know?
According to Kurt Fuller
when his agent called him about a role in the film, his agent had said that Woody Allen
was interested in casting him in the film, which Fuller initially thought was a joke. Fuller was told by his agent to expect someone to arrive at his home, of which someone did with a manila envelope and instructed Fuller that they'd wait until Fuller read the thirty pages that was in the envelope before he had to return the script back. Fuller said there was a note attached to it, personally written by Allen that said "Kurt: thought you might have fun with this. If not, maybe something else down the road. Woody." Fuller said that the script was blacked out, save for the lines Fuller was reading. Fuller simply responded back on the note to Allen "Are you kidding me? I love it! It would be so great!" when returning the script. Fuller said despite the low pay, and it actually cost him to work on the film, he hasn't had to audition for a project since, but only gets offers for work now. See more
Finding themselves in the 1890's, Adriana says to Gil: "it's the start of the Belle Époque". The Belle Époque is dated conventionally from the end of the Franco-Prussian War in 1871 to the outbreak of World War I in 1914. See more
This is unbelievable! Look at this! There's no city like this in the world. There never was.
You act like you've never been here before.
I don't get here often enough, that's the problem. Can you picture how drop dead gorgeous this city is in the rain? Imagine this town in the '20s. Paris in the '20s, in the rain. The artists and writers!
Why does every city have to be in the rain? What's wonderful about getting wet?
