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

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant reminder of a fantastic tour 30 May 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bloomin' Marvellous 25 Nov 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Depeche Mode DVD for your shelves 10 Jun 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Depeche Mode are always better live. 22 Feb 2012
By Mr. M. A. Reed TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Twenty years into their career, they're still at it like they're never, ever going to get bored of this music thing. Whilst they may have taken a musical left turn recently away from stadium-filling, genre-defining industrial-pop at the precise moment that TV and Radio decided they weren't quite hip enough anymore, they still manage to successfully pack out arenas wherever they go. Problem is, we still remember those young kids in felt hats playing "Just Can't Get Enough" on Saturday Morning Swapshop. Live, Depeche Mode are certainly better than on record. And this is certainly better than the nostalgic, lastgasp 1998 tour, where they became, to all intents and purposes, a faded LA cabaret version of Depechy Modey. In place of the retro retread of past glories, they're looking forward.

Aided and abetted by a versatile, unstoppable drummer, and a technical whizzkid genius keyboard player - to aid the 'official' useless keyboardist - Depeche Mode have become a slick, powerful, rock band. They're not breaking new ground or pioneering anything anymore, but I don't know of any musician past the age of 30 who is.

For a start, the songs from the latest, limp album "Exciter" sound vibrant, alive, punchy, with the heart of darkness that somehow manages to taint everything they touch. It's just impossible for them to write anything happy anymore. Secondly, they look as if they're actually enjoying themselves again. And whilst the set, for the opening salvo, may be rooted in newer material and older album tracks, it is still received as eagerly as if they were playing nothing but their hit singles. And the traditional quality gap between the hit-free part of the set and the big hits is almost nonexistent.

This DVD has all what it needs to be great, except for its rather odd and distant audio mix. Had that been perfect, that this would be an 5 star release.
