Cannes 2011: A video examination, Part 1

May 12, 2011 |  5:57 pm

Woody Allen took some at the Cannes Film festival by surprise with his "Midnight in Paris," a whimsical romantic comedy in which Owen Wilson travels back to 1920s Paris. After more middling responses to his recent Cannes entries, the "Manhattan" filmmaker opened this year's festivities with a love letter to the City of Light that drew a wave of favorable reviews -- and the approval of the local audience. The Times' Steven Zeitchik and the Chicago Tribune's Michael Phillips break down his Woody-ness.
