The leaps of faith Midnight Kiss demands are many. Among them: If Vivian acts the way she does on their arranged date, why does Wilson worry about impressing her, even for a second, even on New Year's Eve?

A visually stunning love letter to the much-maligned city...It's when the actors open their mouths that I start to have a problem.

She's all long blond hair and cigarettes; he's scruffy and affable. But they're no Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy; the dynamic between the pair is often flat.

Holdridge shows talent, as do his leads, but along with money for popcorn, bring patience.

The confluence of events allows the film to arrive somewhere that may not be original, but feels honest...at other times, the film seems to be chasing the same old indie dragon of quirky escapades that can be shot on the cheap.

There is no magic here. This is not Paris, these are not Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke, and Holdridge's script does not give us a reason to care what happens to these characters.

If it were a parody of relationship-youth pictures, In Search of a Midnight Kiss would maybe be tolerable, but writer-director Alex Holdridge seems to be playing it with a straight face.

Holdridge's film is painfully undermined by its central characters.

In Search of a Midnight Kiss isn't a homage or a recycling job. It's a film with its own organic existence, its own reason for being. It is ultimately a very true and moving story.

Shot entirely in black and white, this endearing, low budget indie offers as compelling a combination of character development, credible dialogue and surprising plot twists as you're likely to encounter between now and New Year's Eve.

With a different cast -- and fewer saccharine-cutting jokes -- the film might be completely dismissible. But all the actors have a charm.

Lightly sweetened and just a touch bitter, the romantic comedy In Search of a Midnight Kiss treads familiar if appealing ground.
