Magic in the Moonlight is a American romantic comedy film written and directed by Woody Allen. It is Allen's 44th film. Magic in the Moonlight received a generally mixed reception. Critics praised the performances of Firth and Stone, but found its writing formulaic. In , a globally famous illusionist , Wei Ling Soo, performs in front of a crowd in Berlin with his world-class magic act. As he walks off stage the film audience sees that he is actually a British man named Stanley Colin Firth. He berates his employees and is generally curmudgeonly towards his well-wishers.

A candle floats up from the table and Howard grabs it to try to discern what trickery is at play, but is astounded to find no apparent subterfuge. Stanley begins spending time with Sophie. He takes her to visit his aunt and they drive a convertible along the picturesque rocky corniches. When Stanley and Sophie visit his aunt Vanessa Eileen Atkins , Sophie is seemingly able, after holding aunt Vanessa's pearls, to somehow relate secret details of Vanessa's one great love affair. This finally convinces Stanley of Sophie's authenticity and he has an emotional epiphany, feeling that his lifelong rationalism and cynicism have been misguided.

When caught in a rain storm, they end up at an observatory that Stanley had visited as a child. After the rain subsides, they open the roof up and view the stars.

At a Gatsby -esque party, Stanley and Sophie dance.

Moonlight and Magic

As they walk together later that night, Sophie asks him if he has felt any feelings for her "as a woman". Stanley, who has admired her talents as a mystic and is grateful to her for opening his eyes to a new worldview, is taken aback and admits that he has not thought of her that way.

She leaves upset. The next day Stanley holds a press conference to tell the world that he, who spent his life debunking charlatan mystics, has finally come to find one who is the real deal. The reporters drill him with questions, but the grilling is interrupted when he receives news his aunt Vanessa has been in a car accident. Stanley rushes to the hospital, and in an emotional scene in a waiting room considers turning to prayer for solace.

That is, if he now has come to believe in divination and mysticism, perhaps he should believe in God and prayer. He begins to pray for a miracle to save his aunt, but is unable to go through with it. The rationality that has been his whole life comes back and he rejects prayer, the supernatural and by extension, Sophie and her powers. He decides once more to prove she is a fraud. Using a trick seen earlier in his stage act, Stanley appears to leave the room but stays to overhear Sophie and Howard discuss their collusion in what has been an elaborate ruse.

He discovers that Sophie was able to know so much about him and his aunt because she and Howard collaborated to fool Stanley. Sophie was indeed a charlatan tricking the rich American family and was quickly discovered by Howard.

Rather than unmask her and stop the ruse, he enlisted Sophie to help him one-up his best friend and rival, Stanley. Stanley is initially angry at Howard and Sophie but decides to forgive them. In a conversation with his aunt Vanessa, who has recovered from her car accident, Stanley admits and fully realizes that he is in love with Sophie.

He finds her and asks her not to marry Brice, but marry him instead. Sophie is taken aback and finds his haughty, awkward proposal unsuitable. She tells him she still plans to marry the wealthy Brice. Returning dejected to his aunt Vanessa's, Stanley further admits that he fell in love with Sophie at first sight , and, saddened, is then surprised when Sophie, who had arrived before him, knocks a spirit knock.

He proposes, she accepts with a spirit knock, and they kiss as the film ends. Soundtrack [13].

The site's consensus states: Rex Reed , writing for The New York Observer , gave the film a largely positive review, calling it "a masterstroke of enchantment" and praising Colin Firth's acting.

Scott wrote: Allen has had his ups and downs over the years. Rarely, though, has he put a story on screen that manifests so little energy, so little curiosity about its own ideas and situations.

Retrieved 12 March Catledge's former husband. Sophie, come to dinner. Isn't the light perfect, Mother? Really, what exactly happens at a sance? You know, I don't believe you're so naive as you make out about the occult.

I will admit, my Uncle Charles once attended a sance where the medium made a lot of amazing things happen, and weeks later, she was unmasked and sent to prison, for defrauding people out of substantial sums of money. Uncle Charles. Death by water. What did you say? Oh, I was just I was receiving some mental impressions. Excuse me. Come, Stanley, let's go to You look stunned.

I had an uncle who drowned many years ago. And when I mentioned him, she lapsed into a kind of fugue state and muttered "Death by water".

Well, she knew that my sister married on March the seventh to a bank manager. There's absolutely no way she could know that unless Oh, not you, too, Howard! I'll make short work of her tonight during the sance. I would like us now to join hands, as we summon the unseen world.

Now, we're here tonight to contact the soul of the departed husband of Grace Catledge, father of Brice and Caroline. Now, I will try to achieve a trance state. I'm falling deeper, and deeper, into a trance. Harry Catledge, give me a sign. Give us a sign! Is that you, Harry? Signal us once for "Yes".

Twice for "No". Harry, are you okay? Are you happy? Spirit, if you can hear me, give me a sign. That's not possible. I mean, damn it, Stanley, we've both done levitations. I once raised a real tiger, but we both have our tricks. There was nothing supporting this candle, no threads, no wires, it was floating until I brought it down.

I was just telling Mr. Pepperidge here how marvelously you made that candle float with no apparent support.

Is it "Pepperidge," or "Talmudge," or "Taplinger? I mean, I grabbed the candle and found absolutely nothing supporting it. That's because there's nothing to find. My daughter is not some commercial music hall attraction. She doesn't do tricks. She is an adept. I hope I didn't disappoint you at your first sance. Oh, I found it nothing short of perfection. Well done, madam. I can't even remember the last time I've seen Mother so happy.

Will you join us? We're all going to hear some really hot music. Hot music? Come on, Sophie, come on. Yeah, we I thought you said "All this mental work was exhausting? Well, I hope you're not plagued tonight by the dream of the sinister Chinese. You know, I figured out who you represented. Have you heard of him? He's a Caucasian who disguised himself as a Chinese, and he billed himself as the Great Oriental Wizard.

I see, and did you enjoy his performance? I did, very much. He was brilliant. He, um, he vanished a live elephant. And it was just I mean, it just was completely shocking, but of course, it was mechanical tricks that one could learn with enough practice. I see. And, your performance? Oh, I wouldn't call it a performance. Well, call it what you will. I mean, it's a type of trickery, like card magic or vanishing an elephant. And I say you're Mr. Wei Ling Soo. And I say there is nothing you can do that I cannot duplicate.

Oh, I don't doubt it. You're great. But just because you can duplicate my miracles, in no way proves that mine are not real. It was quite a display. I must say, she impresses me. And you saw no signs of trickery? Not yet. Well, let's face it, Stanley, you came to unmask her, and she's unmasked you. On the one side, yes, she's pulling off these bewildering feats, and on the other remains the simple fact that what she's claiming to do, while exquisitely executed, is simply not possible. But who's to say what's possible?

I'm a physician, and new facts come to light, new discoveries are made all the time. Things we never dreamed possible. To cure someone of blindness by having her lie on a couch and talk about her childhood. I mean, who'd have thought? Yeah, but don't you see it challenges our whole concept of reality?

I mean, if there's an unseen world, an afterlife, souls to contact, mind reading, foretelling the future Yes, it changes everything we've held to be scientifically accurate. It's true. If what she claims was possible, everything would surely take on new meaning. And yes, very hopeful meaning. To think, if there were more to life More what? That life doesn't end with death?

That the universe works by design? That God exists. All right, let's not get carried away. The woman is a charlatan.

Magical Moonlight

Because, depressing as the facts of existence are, they are the facts. There is no metaphysical world. What you see out there is what you get. I think Mr. Nietzsche has disposed of the God matter rather convincingly. Good morning. May I? Did you sleep well, Mr. Or should I just call you by your Chinese name? You are a very clever little humbug, Miss Baker. What are you doing today?

I'm going bird-watching with Brice. Do you want to join us? I can't think of a more inane activity, watching little winged creatures acting out nature's pointless busywork.

Why don't you join me instead? I'm driving to Provence to visit my Aunt Vanessa. She's a remarkable woman. We could have lunch. Actually, get to know one another better. You think you'll trick me into showing you how I deceive people. Come on. I'm sure Brice Catledge can live without drooling all over you for a few hours.

I think I'd like to visit Provence. I've never been there. Tell me, doesn't it ever trouble your conscience to fool that poor, empty-headed Mrs.

Catledge into believing she's communicating with her departed spouse? I could just as easily ask you, doesn't it ever bother you to creep around, dashing people's dreams and hopes? Not if their hopes are false. Even if their hopes are false, if it helps them get through life?

Then you admit you're a fraud? I wonder if you get your cynicism from your grandfather, the merchant seaman with the missing finger.

The missing toe. Why are you staring at me? Where are you from? It's in Michigan. And, you're from London. I see a white house in Belgravia. No, Wilton Crescent. A piano. Yes, that's all correct and rather amazing. But I don't buy it. Any other way, lies madness. You'd be happier if I was a fraud, because then, your whole fixed worldview wouldn't be shaken up.

No, it's quite the opposite. If you knew how much I don't want you to be a fake Oh, but think how embarrassing it would be for you. Your whole life, you spent publicly crusading against spiritualism, and then, you'd have to come out with it and say that you were wrong.

But I'm not wrong. Is that why Jenny dropped you? How could you know about Jenny? I see long, blonde hair. A wonderful laugh. Yes, she had a lovely laugh. But who wants a pessimistic bore who hides in his room all day and practices card tricks? No, I'll tell you who wants a man who locks himself in his room and practices all day, who's a committed artist. Olivia, my fiance.

I see a match made in heaven. How can you eat so much? We just finished lunch. I told you I like to eat a lot. George's psychoanalyst says it's because I need love, but to me, I'm just hungry. Oh, I mean, a lot of people need love, but they don't eat their way to it.

You want some? No, thank you. This is so beautiful. It's transient. Oh, Stanley, how nice of you to drop by. And you, I take it, must be Olivia. No, no. Olivia is a brunette. And she's a bit taller than me, and she's in London, anxious to get on with her trip, so, she can get to work on her book.

I'm Sophie. Oh, you must be the American the Catledges say is so amazing. Sophie fancies herself a telepathic, among other things, so, be careful what you think, Aunt Vanessa. We all know the evil workings of your mind. Stanley doesn't believe in spiritualists. He thinks you're all scoundrels. If so, you're a very pretty little scoundrel. If you see all and know all, where's my aunt just been? Somewhere for her health.

I see baths. Is it sciatica or rheumatism? It's sciatica, and that is quite remarkable. How can you know that I've just come back from a spa in Italy? However she knows, it's not through mystical vibrations, I can assure you.

Oh, he's always been so militantly scientific, even at six years old. One of the most kind and gentle local priests said that Stanley was the only child in the neighborhood destined for Hell. And why do you still trek to Italy, to pay good money to bathe in plain spring water that is not a drop more medicinal than the water that flows from your own tub? I'm not going to get into that debate with you, Stanley. It brings out the beast in you. And I see you still buy this stupid nostrum. It's a health mixture.

Sulfur, molasses and barley extract. It's disgusting and is of no proven value. Perhaps if I needed an emetic. Am I the only sane person left on this planet? I love him, but he was always an incorrigible child. Can I give you something? Just a little wine, if you have any. We've just eaten. Oh, are those little cakes? Good heavens, are you seriously going to have more food? They're delicious.

Now, tell me something about my Aunt Vanessa's colorful past. Oh, leave her alone, Stanley. She's not a performing monkey. Do you have a telephone I could use? I'm sorry, it's 3: Brice Catledge is the young milksop who's smitten with her, and ready to lay his family fortune at her feet to subsidize her chicanery.

Can you believe it? He serenades her. Well, it sounds rather romantic to me, but you wouldn't know about such things, Stanley.

It would mean joining the human race. Here, it's in the study. Why do you badger her? She's quite likable, even if she is a fraud. You know, one of the cardinal rules of magic, is that the magician must never repeat his trick, because sooner or later, one begins to notice the move, and he's caught. But the more I watch her The more I'm stumped. Could she be real? I'm beginning to question my own common sense. I've always questioned your common sense.

You've always been so certain about the world, Stanley. And I've always tried to teach you that we don't know. We really don't know. We're just poor, limited human beings.

The goldfish doesn't understand who changes the water in his bowl. If only she was real, it would lift the dark cloud that's followed me since childhood. Well, I'm sure your fiance would appreciate a sunnier bridegroom. Olivia likes me as I am. Sophie agrees we're a match made in heaven.

Has she met her? No, but there, she's guessing correctly. I told Brice I'd be late. I said I was just sitting down for some of your blood pudding. Tell me something about my aunt. Do you have a, uh, handkerchief or an article of clothing, or a piece of jewelry I could use? Oh, my pearls. These are beautiful. I'm receiving a It's cloudy.

Here comes the usual theatrical fertilizer. I see an important Englishman. Perhaps a member of Parliament. Go on. A love affair. I don't believe this.

You cannot possibly know this. Something's wrong. He's married. Aunt Vanessa? I see a sequence of trysts. I've never told her anything. He cannot leave his wife. No, he did not. And so, you're heartbroken. Sophie, you are a miracle. And you vow never to love again. How does she do it?

You're never to marry. This is beyond comprehension. I've never known anything like it But this is a symbol. This is The breakup. He gave me those on our last evening together.

I'm so sorry. Sophie, is there really a spirit world? Do you really tune in on it? Is there more? Have I not seen it? Where have you been all my life? When did you first realize you had this extraordinary gift? Oh, uh, very young.

My teens. Well, and you saw it as a way to make money? Well, my father abandoned us, and we were very poor. Eh, but it's astounding. I mean, I've always believed that the dull, tragic reality of life is all there is, but you are proof that there's more. More mystery, more magic. Oh, dear. Oh, boy. You leave this to me. I did get a little anxious vibration when the engine started smoking back there.

Don't worry, I'm gonna have a look at this. I actually have an inkling as to what this might be. What are you gonna do?

Yes, not to worry. I think it's the, um I'm actually I'm actually rather good at dealing with anything mechanical. I don't understand it! I put the entire engine back together, and I still have these two pieces. This doesn't make any sense. If I can just get these back into here You should hurry. It's gonna rain. Don't worry, it's not going to rain. No, I think I can feel it already. No, the skies are clear We gotta put the top up. I have to be able to do this We have to put the top up.

It's raining. No, please just give me a minute. Stanley, come on If I can only put this in here. Come here! All right. You can't put the top up without taking this off. How are you gonna do it without the The canopy has to come off. Okay, okay. Okay, lift! It's stuck, it's stuck!

No, don't do that. You'll break it, you'll break it It's lightning, it's lightning. We'll be killed. There must be a catch somewhere. What do we do?

Get under the car! God, I don't want to go under the car!

It's fine. It's on four rubber wheels! It can't get struck by lightning! Just go under there! Oh, we're gonna die! Come now, I've got you. I've got you. Oh, my God. Oh, God, we're gonna die. I know this place! I can We can go in there. Let's run! Will it be open? Well, it'll be open! It always used to be open. I found that rather exhilarating. Did you see that lightning? Goodness me. I can't believe I found this place.

What is this? It's an observatory. I came here as a boy. Oh, thank God we found it. We just got a little wet. It's water. Are you kidding? We could've been struck by lightning. We could die of pneumonia. I'm sure your fiance wouldn't be too pleased. Well, this would never have happened if Olivia was here.

Oh, no? Um, she's, uh, too competent. She'd have fixed the car. Is she also a mechanic? Well, she's one of those people who's good at everything. How lucky for you. Yes, yes. I suppose so. What are you staring at? You have no idea how miserable you look. I'm freezing. I mean, the Can you hold me, or something?

I can offer you my waistcoat. No, you're wetter than I am. Just put an arm around me, or you know Body heat, it's My aunt used to bring me here as a boy. The roof opens up. Oh, really? You can see the universe. It's menacing. Can you open it? I hardly think that's the brightest idea at the moment. We just ran away from that. It's still up there. Oh, right, right. Just have to wait it out. What was so menacing about the universe? The size. Of course, I was much smaller, then. Poor Howard's car.

Are you a little warmer now? Tell me, with all your powers of prognostication, could you have ever predicted, when you first saw me vanishing an elephant onstage in my Chinese ensemble, that you and I would one day end up in a deserted celestial observatory in a rainstorm in the south of France? It's highly ironic. It's morbid. I feel sleepy.

I'm going to have a little nap. The rain stopped. It stopped a while ago. I didn't want to wake you. You looked too peaceful sleeping. Yes, it's the first peaceful sleep I've had in a very long time. Does this thing open the roof? Yes, let me show you. I've never forgotten this. You find that menacing? I'd say it was pretty romantic. No one, but you Penny for your thoughts. Well, you know what my thoughts are?

I've already told you I want to marry you. That we'll get married at summer's end at the Donaldsons' yacht. It's enormous, and it can accommodate all the guests we'd want to have. And then after the wedding, we sail it, with those who wish, from Monaco to Greece, and then we honeymoon on the Greek Islands.

What do you think? That's pretty swanky stuff for a girl from Kalamazoo. And then we'll live in Europe. You'll run your foundation. You'll be world-famous. I'll be so proud of you. You know, my mom has been so happy since you've been here. Before you came, she was so glum, and now she's all aglow. Bring the boxes up to mademoiselle's room. What are those? Well, you know those dresses you were fawning over when we walked through town? I got them for you. All of them. I told you I was gonna pamper you.

Shall I sell the beach house on the Jersey Shore? Then, I won't. I really didn't want to. It has such sentimental meaning. I'm so glad you said that, Harry. Harry, I hope this question doesn't embarrass you, but I have to ask it. Were you always faithful to me? I knew it! Certain so-called friends of mine suggested otherwise, that you had a long affair with Sally Summers. No, I really didn't believe it. But I'm ashamed to admit, I did wonder. Oh, Harry I'm so relieved to know that I was the only one.

I was the only one, wasn't I? How wonderful you make me feel. Well, look who's strolling the grounds this morning! Why aren't you in your room, practicing? I'm too excited to lock myself away.

What are you and Brice up to?

Brice is away for the week, in Paris. Mother and I are going swimming. I'm sure swimming isn't your favorite pastime.

I accept your invitation. Just need to buy a bathing suit, and I'll, uh, meet you by the pool. We're not going to the pool. We prefer to swim off the rocks. The rocks? Even better. Live dangerously, I say. You only live once. Or maybe two or three times, depending on your supply of ectoplasm. You are a much better swimmer than I would have imagined. I'm also a much better dancer. You must take me dancing sometime.

Perhaps I shall, now that life is no longer weary, stale, flat and unprofitable. Oh, that's from something. Is that Dickens? Oh, dear, poor thing.

Moonlight Magic

Madam, your wunderkind has much catching up to do. Isn't that Dickens? That's Dickens. The Seventh is actually one of my favorites of Beethoven's symphonies, but if you haven't heard them, the string quartets are sublime. Especially the late ones, the 15th and the 16th. Of course, they are rather intellectually demanding, but that's the thing about intelligence. You must never despair.

Yours can be raised. You know, it's extraordinary. I have smelled these flowers times, and yet I have never really smelled them until now. What a pity. All the rest of the human race that you consider boobs, smelling flowers and you all left out.

Now, wait. They've enjoyed, but mindlessly, because they never thought. They never They never stopped for a moment to consider what a rotten deal it all appears to be.

To be born, to have committed no crime, and yet to be sentenced to death. Ah, but notice I say, "Appears to be". Alvin, hello.

It's Stanley Crawford. Yes, Wei Ling Crawford. How are you? Good, splendid. Listen, Alvin, I have the story of a lifetime for your paper and I wanted you to have it first. Well, yes, it is a It's a theatrical piece, but it's It's much more than that, much more.

It's science, it's It's philosophy, it's religion. Brice is coming home tonight from Paris. The week went so fast. Have you decided to accept Brice's marriage proposal? He is pushing me very hard. Well, I'd grab it if I were you. I mean, it'd be logical. An uneducated nobody from some ridiculous-sounding city, gifted, miraculously, through no achievement of your own, and now you've developed a taste for high living Yachts, motorcars. You know, Stanley, I'm not quite as desperate as you make me out to be.

There have actually been a number of, I don't know, substantial men who have fallen in love with me. Well, you could've fooled me.
