Feb. 2 (Bloomberg) -- Woody Allen’s “Midnight in Paris,” a romantic comedy featuring France’s First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, will open this year’s Cannes Film Festival, organizers said in an e-mailed release.

Shot entirely in the French capital, the movie stars Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams and Marion Cotillard. Bruni-Sarkozy -- wife of French President Nicolas Sarkozy -- has a secondary role.

Allen’s movie “is a wonderful love letter to Paris,” Festival Director Thierry Fremaux said, noting that the director “takes a deeper look” at themes he has previously explored: “our relationship with history, art, pleasure, and life.”

This year’s festival, the 64th of its kind, will be held from May 11 to 22 in the Riviera resort.
