Polidor in Woody Allen’s « Midnight in Paris »

It is at Polidor, rue Monsieur-le-Prince in the 6th arrondissement of Paris, that Gil (played by Owen Wilson) meets Ernest Hemingway (played by Corey Stoll). Woody Allen has managed to camp the time travel of his hero there.

History: A young American couple – whose marriage is planned for the fall – is going to Paris for a few days. The magic of the capital does not take long to operate, especially on the young man in love with the City of Light and who aspires to a different life.

Midnight in Paris (Midnight in Paris) is an American-Spanish comedy directed by Woody Allen and released in French theaters on May 11, 2011. The film was presented as the opening film at the Cannes Film Festival 2012. In 2012, it was awarded with the Oscar for best original screenplay.
