‘Midnight’ movie

Allen's 'Paris' preems at Cannes

French crix and auds went for Sony Pictures Classics’ “Midnight in Paris,” which kicked off the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday.

Pic’s many stars accompanied helmer Woody Allen on the red carpet. Carla Bruni, who has a cameo in “Midnight,” had been expected but canceled her appearance.

In the pic, Owen Wilson finds himself transported back to 1920s Paris. “You know it’s a big trap — that thinking living in another time would be better. I wouldn’t go back to any time other than now,” said Allen, who has memorably scored many of his hit films with Gershwin and Porter classics.

Also on the fest’s opening day, Bernardo Bertolucci received his Palme d’Or award from Robert De Niro. Prior to the ceremony, the helmer commented on his “1900” star. “He’s very laconic. We’ll see if he has a few words to say. That would be good.”
