      Paris

      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Alternately a sharp ensemble dramedy and a love letter to the titular city, Paris is uneven but often striking.

      Ed Koch The Atlantic My expectation was that the City of Lights would be displayed in an exceptional manner. Take it from me, it is not. Jan 17, 2018 Full Review Nicolas Rapold Film Comment Magazine It's amusing enough, until boredom, then dread, then incredulity set in as we realize we must now spend two poorly written, pasted-together hours in [the characters'] company. Oct 20, 2014 Full Review Kimberley Jones Austin Chronicle In this overpacked ensemble cast, it's Binoche you want to see more of. Rated: 3/5 Oct 9, 2009 Full Review PJ Nabarro Patrick Nabarro Most of the time, Klapisch's dramaturgy cannot match the ambition of his premise, and he particularly fails in trying to push the cutesy, rom-com leanings of the scenario. Rated: 2/5 Dec 9, 2018 Full Review Kelly Jane Torrance Washington Times Paris is a fitting tribute to the dynamic people who populate one of the greatest cities on earth. Rated: 3.5/4 Dec 5, 2018 Full Review Martin Tsai Critic's Notebook Even when Mr. Klapisch is pulling off the feat quite competently, one can't help but think that he's capable of so much more than this.

      Audience Member Just the message about appreciating what we have, is important. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Touch set of vaguely interconnected stories emphasizing randomness of life on top of difficult decisions; some stories are given more development while some seem to fully disappear Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member A great assembly of great French actors. Some amusing moments & even greater performances (Fabrice Luchini dance to punk!), but altogether seems kind of haphazard, like a confusing montage. And the point of the movie? Seize the Day...because tomorrow there may not be another. And we will show you a Paris that's not at all glamour, but full of disappointments & jilted lovers..... well... Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member A French version on Love Actually that is shot much better but doesn't tie the characters together as well. But there's a lot of themes done right here, good acting and a few very entertaining scenes along with a very fast emotional connection to the lead. But also a few useless characters and almost a completely useless storyline (thankfully it has a lot if interest and charm) make this French "love connection" movie just shy of greatness. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Not compelling or tightly scripted enough to warrant **** Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member I found this movie to be boring and predictable.
