Movie Info

Neurotic and manic, bold and magnetic, Paula (Dosch) is a muddle of contradictions. Fresh from an unceremonious dumping by her boyfriend of 10 years, she finds herself wandering the streets of Paris- jobless, homeless and single- with no idea of what life holds for her next. At 31 years old, with little to show for it but a kidnapped cat and a sense of adventure, she sets out to reinvent herself new job, new friends, new life and finds that these things never do come easily.

  • It's like a film that Philippe Garrel might have made, although Paula isn't a thousand miles from Agnès Varda's Cléo.

  • Laetitia Dosch is breathtakingly charismatic. You can't take your eyes off her, even on repeat viewings.

  • The film's score, by Julie Roue, is perfectly suited to the material as it both jazzy and a tad melancholic, underlining how Paula seems to move through a world that mostly seems to be oblivious to her presence.

  • Dosch is a revelation. She embodies the character so fully that it's hard to see where she ends and Paula begins.

  • It's a story of maturation and self-discovery that's reflective of life itself in all the ups and downs.
