Last night a french friend and I went to see the new Woody Allen film Midnight in Paris. Slightly dubious about the Woody Allen bit but it turned out to be a lovely film with none of the obscurity of some of his others and lots of stunning costumes and sets. Good playing by the actors - apart from a wooden Carla Bruni but then what were we expecting.

Replaying the film to myself in bed later one of the notable things was the angle from which we had been watching!

It must be years and years since I have not been the one that decided where we sat in the cinema. 'No I don't mind where we sit'. So instead of near the back we sat very near the front, in the middle.

What creatures of habit we are that this was the main thing that I noticed.


  1. I loved the early Woody Allen films, but haven't seen one for ages. On your recommendation I'll definitely look out for this one, Rosie. It will have to be on TV though. I can't remember when I last went to the cinema....

  2. Hi Rosie,

    I could not see your email address hence my note in comments - please can you contact me regarding an Expat Focus Recommended Website Award. carole@expatfocus.com

    Kind regards,

  3. Oh I hate sitting near the front and getting a crick in the neck, and being too close! But I can see why you'd notice a whole new perspective on your view compared to what you're used to.
