Storyline

In Paris, the pharmacist Alice has been an obsessed Woody Allen fan since she was fifteen and has seen all his movies and talks to him alone in her room. When she meets Pierre in a night-club, she finds that he loves jazz and she believes he is her prince charming. But when Pierre sees Alice's sister Hélène, they immediately fall in love with each other and marry each other. Years later, Alice is a spinster that administrates the pharmacy that belonged to her father and believes that movies can heal many diseases. However her father insistently tries to find a husband for her. When the alarm technician Victor meets Alice, she does not see any future relationship with him. But one day, Victor brings Alice to meet Woody Allen in Paris and the director gives an advice to Alice. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Love
13 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Alice (Alice Taglioni) is a bit of an old maid or at least those around her believe that. They are collectively working to bring the right man for a good introduction and are constantly working at facilitating romance. All the while, she has already has found her soul mate in Woody Allen whom she instates her hopes and dreams and Allen shares with her the ins and outs of life and discovering love. There are many funny Allen maxims but one that stands out is that the two most important decisions is life is one's work and sex. Full of twist of turns, you realize in Paris-Manhattan that you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find a prince or it's OK if you never find 'the one'. Life has a way of working out. This is a cute romantic comedy and fun to watch. Saw this as part of the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival
