From Amazon.co.uk

Despite their 20-plus years in the music business One Night in Paris demonstrates that Depeche Mode are by no means dinosaurs of synth-infused rock. While they could have easily ended up on the retro tour conveyor belt, as many of their early-80s contemporaries have, they have always managed to remain relevant. Directed by long-time artistic collaborator Anton Corbijn the concert footage concisely captures the atmosphere of the show which was seen by over 1.5 millions fans in 2001. Though there is an obsessive focus on the half-naked Gahan and the "fallen-angel" Gore throughout, at various points the camera withdraws to expose a huge screen at the back of the stage. Combined with the angry stage lighting, the projection films (which include footage of a goldfish swimming in a tank for "In Your Room") provide an added epic feel. Predominantly made up of songs from Exciter, the track-listing also includes old favourites such as "Enjoy the Silence" and "Personal Jesus".

On the DVD: One Night in Paris' visual and audio material is of an excellent quality, which further enriches the strong live performances. The bonus material on the second disc (particularly the interviews with the band and tour crew) neatly complements the material on the first disc. However, the 50-minute commentary (which is more like a short-course on the practicalities of photography) by Corbijn is dull and over-indulgent. Watched independently of the concert footage, the stage projections also make lacklustre viewing. If the bonus material had been selected more sparingly all of the items could have been combined on one disc making a more succinct package. --John Galilee

I have been a Depeche Mode fan now for a long time, and first saw them live about 20 years ago. Watching this DVD took me right back to the night last October when I went to see DM in Manchester. I was part of the crowd again.... As usual Anton Corbijn has provided us with an excellent film. The atmosphere is truly captured, and it is obvious to me now that I have seen them close up that the band members enjoyed this tour as much as their fans. I have not been able to go through the day without watching a few songs on this DVD, much to the annoyance of my husband and daughter and I guess this will happen until they tour again. It goes without saying that DM fans will enjoy this DVD best, whether reliving the Exciter Tour or seeing it for the first time. My advice - turn down the lights and turn up the volume!

Being a Depeche Mode fan, I bought this the day it was released and even before I watched it, I felt some effort had been made. It may sound anorak-like, but the DVD packaging is superb (even though the flip-open case sometimes causes Disc 2 to fall out): lots of grainy Anton Corbijn photos and a suitably arty libretto. Anyway, it's a suitable addition to your DVD shelf, which, if you're reading this, probably includes The Singles 86>98 DVD already.
As for the content, yes, I agree with the previous reviewer, it's not the same experience as when you're there, no matter how big your TV or how effective your sound system.
Admittedly, vocal shortcomings are always going to show up on a live recording, but when you're getting a rarely-performed It Doesn't Matter Two and a superb reworking of Condemnation, I can forgive any off-key moments, and it's all worth it for the obligatory crowd-waving during Never Let Me Down Again.
What's most interesting when you watch this show however, is how the Depeche Mode live show focuses so much around Dave and Martin, not just as individuals, but as a sort of double-act, hovering between moments of intensity, and moments of light-hearted exchanges. This is especially evident now that Martin has pretty much entirely abandoned keyboards for guitar onstage.
Dave remarks in the interview section how Martin's new onstage persona has served to move the Depeche Mode live experience away from what could previously have been seen as the "Dave Gahan show", but what this concert film serves to show is how it has most undoubtedly become the "Dave and Martin Show".
The extras are a welcome bonus, and the crew and band interviews are interesting.

I sat down to watch this almost half-heartedly, with no expectations of being thrilled at all. I then realised that this band that I had forgotten about is in fact one of the best live bands in the world. Anton Corbijn has captured the essence of an excellent live gig, and sucks you in to actually make you feel like you were there.
I watch it in it's entirity 3 nights in a row - not something I have done with any other DVD. Dave Gahan is amazing live, Martin Gore skipped and was brilliant. Fletch was there too.
Not just for DM fans, for all live music fans.

'One Night in Paris' is a double disc set of last year's live concert (part of the 'Exciter' tour) by Depeche Mode in Paris. Depeche Mode have always been one of my favourite bands and this DVD is a real treat for fans. On the first disc is the concert itself which runs for about 2 hours. It was filmed by Anton Corbijn who has steadily been building a good reputation for filming rock bands and it certainly shows in this film. Needless to say, the band themselves are in fine form and many of their classic hits are included in the performance. The concert seems to strike the right balance between loud and soft tracks and the sound itself is first class being recorded in Dolby Digital 5.1. My favourite tracks are 'Walking In My Shoes' and 'Halo'; simply superb!
The second disc contains various 'extras' including a short documentary on the making of the film, band interviews, interviews with some of the fans, a 'stills' gallery of photos from the concert and an extra track not included in the concert film, 'Sister of Night'. There is also the track 'Never Let Me Down Again' where you can choose from various camera viewing angles e.g. as if you were standing at the back or front of the stage. The disc also includes the concert projection films for 5 of the tracks. These are the films that were projected on to the screen behind the band at the concert. One of the films features some beautiful time lapse photography of the Nevada desert. Another features fish; try selecting repeat on your DVD player and watch your cat's reaction!
All in all, a great DVD and a 'must' for Depeche Mode fans.

Having seen 7 shows on last years Exciter tour, I have fond memories of the bands best tour since 1990.
Whilst this dvd is excellent, It's just a shame that the crowd were not included more, because after all, a crowd at a Depeche Mode gig adds to the setting like no other!
Standout performances are Halo, Dream On, When The Body Speaks, Freelove, Enjoy The Silence, Personal Jesus, Black Celebration and the ever amazing Never Let Me Down again.
Disc two is good, althought the photograph section with audio by Anton Corbijn is a bit long winded. A perfect excuse to use your forward button!
Look out for the extra track Surrender, which feature Martin Gore in his dressing room putting on his make up.
The packaging is nice, and is identical to U2s Elevation, but they did use the same designers!
Overall, a cracking set that is definately worth the money.
