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

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

Moody, mannered and supremely irritating.

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.
Aug 10, 2007
Besides the restless style, Dans Paris is remarkable for being more about familial bonds than French cinema tends to be.

Dans Paris feels fresh and quirky enough to have been made 30 years ago.

Make a movie about depressed people, and what do you get? A depressing movie.

Honoré's rambunctious filmmaking process is born truly in the moment.

There's a vivid comedy to this family's emotional state of siege, an easy confidence to Honoré's camerawork, and plenty of beautiful bodies.

A film that serves as a kind of manic tour through French film history. Ah, l'amour! Ah, le cinema!

With Dans Paris, Christophe Honoré picks up where the early François Truffaut and his comrades-in-cinema left off -- with a playful, liberatory style, and a song in his heart.

Clearly Honoré is talented, but only towards the end does the tale come together with conviction.

The film is too wrapped up in some rather uninteresting bits of cleverness to bother making you believe in or care about the characters.

Empty and narcissistic New Wave homage from the unashamedly pretentious Christophe Honoré .
