Dans Paris is not merely allusive to the French New Wave, it's practically Tarantino-esque.

It shouldn't work, but it does, as a vibrant, modern re-imagining of the New Wave aesthetic, at once mopey, sweet, playful and madly in love with Americana and cinema itself.

will induce a shortage in precious vacation days, stirring up visions of oneself mimicking the carefree Jonathan, gallivanting about Paris without a care in the world

If watching mopey naked French people is your idea of a date night, this is your movie.

Almost overwhelmingly dark and downbeat, which nearly makes the whole thing unwatchable.

A lighthearted riff on heavy themes, Dans Paris is a knowing throwback to the playful, profound works of the early French New Wave.

Dans Paris is an odd, off-kilter drama that lurches along for a while -- the disconnected scenes seem almost to be bumping into each other at random -- until, in the final scenes, it all comes together.

If an admirable attempt at the iconoclastic, Dans Paris is too much film school for an afternoon. Lacks even the modest structure and resolution that most audiences will demand.

Moody, mannered and supremely irritating.

The personal disconnections and interpersonal bonds the film explores are timeless.

Dans Paris has a lot of whining about women, interrupted with impulsive trysts and bouts of dancing.

The situation is less interesting than Honoré's eclectic style...

Dans Paris is limned with human stumbling, snatches of temporary joy laced with existential disquiet and the desperation of souls at sea in a sterile universe but not to be denied grasps of pleasure.

By the time it's over, you feel as if you've taken a graduate course at UCLA film school.

Structurally, it is mostly windup with very little delivery.

There's something breathtaking about this melodically melancholic homage to the French New Wave and the City of Lights herself ... as modernly poignant as it is retro-seductive.

Christmas with the cracked.
