I am a great fan of both Louis Garrel and Romain Duris, and was not disapointed by this film. Whilst it may start off slowly, and somewhat confusing, all makes sense in the end. In short, Paul (played by Romain Duris) descends into a pit of depression after having broken up with his long time girlfriend. He returns to his boyhood home to live with his father, which results in his younger brother Jonathan (Louis Garrel) being thrown out of his own room to sleep on the couch.

Both his brother and father try in their unique and personal way to get Paul to emerge from his bed and room, and start enjoying life again. The film is brutally honest in its portrayal of how difficult this can be, and was far from pretentious when dealing with the complex subject matter of clinical depression.

You cannot help but feel for Paul's father as he tries desperately to 'save' his son from the same fate of his younger sister Claire (who committed suicide suddenly a few years prior). The love, affection and gentleness he has for Paul in the midst of Paul's aggression and despair is a true testament to a father which cares deeply for his child. When Paul finally gets to speak of Claire, albeit to a complete stranger, he remarks how people often underestimate the power of sadness. In fact, this short conversation is one of the most poetically beautiful and challenging in the entire film. "Some people are born with sadness".

Whilst the film was not brilliant, and Louis Garrel was in my opinion far better in the 'Dreamers', it does not disappoint. Some of the dialogue between characters is both sublime and profound, and potentially missed by an audience more interested in 'action'.

Dans Paris shows the approach to filmmaking Christophe Honoré would develop in Les Chansons d'Amour and Homme au Bain, and is here closest to the style of Jean-Luc Godard, albeit with a much more modern feel. In the first few minutes Louis Garrel (Jonathan) goes out onto the balcony and speaks directly to the camera. It is only a short parenthesis, but nevertheless sets the tone for a film that often appears disjointed and random, without a very clear sense of direction. It interleaves episodes, basically, and contrives to be both serious and playful in its treatment of depression and ways of using a camera. The former theme is well projected by Romain Duris as Jonathan's older brother Paul, in a state of collapse after breaking up with his girlfriend and moving back to his father's flat in Paris, while Alice Butaud, familiar from other Honore films, plays Jonathan's on-off girlfriend, and Guy Marchand and Marie-France Pisier play the divorced parents with their somewhat volatile rapport. There are many sequences to enjoy, particularly a love song over the phone, Paul singing along to Kim Wilde's Cambodia while reclining on his bed in his underwear, Jonathan chatting up a stranger seen in the reflection of a shop window, the charm of the sadly late Marie-France Pisier. Added to this are frequent shots of both the brothers in a state of undress, with rear nudity in both cases, superbly pneumatic in Garrel's, more subtle in Duris's - and full-frontal of the brave Garrel, who also starred in Honore's outrageous Ma Mere - that definitely lift the film.Read more ›

I loved this film. Very random at times, but that's what makes this film what it is. The beginning of the film when Louis Garrel is introducing the story to the viewer directly, really does make this film that little bit different. I thoroughly enojoyed it, and being half French myself, made it all the more enjoyable to watch. There are a lot of funny moments, and great acting all round. People who are not used to foreign films, if you do watch it - take it with a pinch of salt, you might appreciate it more, but do not expect it to be like some blockbuster hit because it's not - but this obviously depends on what film taste you have. If you liked The Dreamers, you'll love this. Fantastic acting from Louis Garrel as always.

"Dans Paris" is not one of the better French films that I have watched lately. It is relatively plot free, the characters are not particularly likeable and the dialogue is weak at times. The film concerns itself with a father and a brother and their endeavours to cheer up the depressed Paul (Romain Duris) who has just ended a long term relationship and who has moved back to his father's apartment in Paris in despair. He spends most of his time lying in bed listening to old Kim Wilde 45's. His younger brother on the other hand gads about Paris with a string of girlfriends in tow, while his diligent divorced father spends most of his time shopping and cooking for his sons. The feisty mother makes a fleeting appearance and from it it becomes clear that she keeps her two sons strictly at arms length. "Dans Paris" is all about fractured relationships; there are no "normal", stable relationships in this film at all and in that respect perhaps it is something of a commentary about life in Paris today.
