|Midnight in Paris is a romantic comedy that follows a family traveling to Paris for business. It celebrates a young man's great love for Paris, and simultaneously explores the illusion people have that a life different from their own would be much better.
|Gil (Owen Wilson) is visiting Paris with his fiancée Inez (Rachel McAdams) and her parents. He's working on a novel about a man who works in a nostalgia shop and too often lives in the past. While creating this world in his book, he wanders the streets of Paris, wondering what it must have been like back in the day. He too finds himself nostalgic for a more romantic time.
||吉尔（欧文•威尔逊 饰）与未婚妻伊内兹（瑞秋•麦克亚当斯 饰）、未来的岳父母一起来到了巴黎。他正忙着写一部小说，小说的男主人公在一家怀旧商店工作，而且还老是活在过去。走在巴黎的街头，吉尔一边构思小说里的这个世界，一边想象着那究竟是怎样的一个时代。他发现自己也陷入了怀旧情结中——那是一段更加浪漫的时光。
|One night after a particularly "successful" wine tasting, a drunken Gil finds himself in a small square as the clock strikes midnight. A car pulls up and he's ordered by some party goers to get in. When he gets to their location, he hears a man playing piano who sounds an awful lot like Cole Porter. Then he meets Zelda Fitzgerald (Alison Pill) and her husband F. Scott (Tom Hiddleston). It's not long before he's hanging with Hemingway, Gertrude Stein, Pablo Picasso, and Salvador Dali.
||一天晚上，吉尔参加完一个特别“成功”的品酒会后已是醉意浓浓。午夜的钟声敲响时，吉尔发现自己正站在一个小广场上。一辆小车在他面前停了下来，车上坐着些要去参加派对的人，他们叫他上车。抵达目的地后，吉尔听到有人在弹钢琴，那琴声听起来好像就是科尔•波特在演奏。接着，他遇到了姗尔达•菲茨杰拉德（艾丽森•皮尔 饰）和她的丈夫司各特•非茨杰拉德（汤姆•希德勒斯顿 饰）。不久，他又结识了海明威、格特鲁德•斯坦、巴勃罗•毕加索和萨尔瓦多•达利。
|Gil returns to this millennium every morning and goes back to the creative explosion of the '20s every night. As he does so he begins to ignore what's going on his real world and becomes entranced with a lovely lady named Adriana (a fictional creation played by Marion Cotillard). Gil starts to wonder if he would live forever with Adriana and let Gertrude Stein be his editor.
|In the end he discovers that longing for a "golden past" is a recurring theme of any time period, as some prefer to be nostalgic about a romanticized past rather than accepting the messy present and uncertain future.
