Critic Reviews for A Woman of Paris
It is not pretty. Chaplin never meant it to be. But it is horribly true.March 1, 2017 | Full Review…
Chaplin's manner is deft and witty, but the depiction of unchecked wealth and the moral rot it breeds links this drawing-room romance to the fierce political comedies in which he stars.
For some years great groups of the illuminati have been proclaiming Charles S. Chaplin an artist. Yet our good old uncles and funny old aunts, who really knew about custard pies, demurred.
A Woman of Paris is a serious, sincere effort, with a bang story subtlety of idea-expression.
A moving and entertaining work, executed with high finesse by a master cineast.
Despite its wealth of detail and sharp observations about morality, the film remains curiously insubstantial with its refined dabbling in the elements of satire, sentiment and melodrama exploited with such panache in Chaplin's starring comedies.January 26, 2006 | Full Review…
Audience Reviews for A Woman of Paris
Feb 09, 2011This was a good movie, a sad, romantic, and sometimes a bit humourous story, with good actors. Just note that Chaplin only directs the movie, he doesn't act in it. Overall, it's a good movie, but there were a couple of boring scenes in the middle of the movie.Aj V Super Reviewer
Sep 11, 2008What distincts A Woman of Paris is the line between its overt melodrama and the glorious feature-film period in which Chaplin entered with The Kid.Here,he experimented without his beloved Charlot and yet,Menjou is stellar and so is the usually briosa Purviance. Predictable and sticking to the strictly condemned love affair,I can only applaud the effort,plus the ironic output,even if he isn't at his most magnificent.Dimitris S Super Reviewer
Aug 01, 2007Charles Chaplin is not the star of this, his first serious drama. It's a silent film but Chaplin's direction of actors is so good that they don't overact, all seems very natural. the story is full of controversial or indecent themes for the time it was made (rebellious children, sex outside matrimony, women's lib). A very subtle novelty, as Chaplin said "it's all about how men and women tend to hide their emotions"Pierluigi P Super Reviewer
