This review is from: Paris [DVD]  (DVD)
A delightful but very slow paced film which I guess can only be described as an uncontroversial dilluted Parisianesque 'Crash'. It is like 'Crash' in the sense that the characters are all connected in some way. The plot centres mainly around Pierre who has a serious heart condition and his single middle aged sister, a university lecturer who is fed up with life and is enchanted with a pretty student, some market traders, a lady in a bakery and a young man from Cameroon trying to get to Paris.
I think the film would have benefited more from focused character development, pinpointing certain characters for the audience to really engage with and understand as opposed to lots of scanty stories, I feel as though I didnt really know the characters, this however does not remove from the charm of the film.
The cinematography was lovely especially the various shots of the city of Paris and the repetition of erik satie's gnossienne 1. Overall its a warming film and a good watch.
