    The magical world of movies helps most people forget the bleak reality of their existence. Lost in the world of silver screen dreams, one hopes for the briefest of moments that some of the on-screen lives may become theirs. 

    Blurring the line between reality, fiction and fantasy ‘The Purple Rose of Cairo’ is an ode to the audiences of the post depression-era America for whom movies transcended life.

    Woody Allen often cites this as the favourite amongst his films.
