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.


Critic Reviews for Montparnasse Bienvenue (Jeune femme)

All Critics (36) | Top Critics (1)

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.

Progressively devolves into cheap identity politics. Paula becomes a form of clown, reflecting back on a conveniently unnuanced world of patriarchal and bourgeois villainy.

It often feels like there is a great film within Jeune Femme, but it just got lost in the editing suite; the emotional essence of Paula's struggle remains, but it just doesn't hit as hard as it should do.

What stands out in this film is its bravery in demonstrating instability with sympathy. [Full Review in Spanish]

Montparnasse Bienvenue is a story of reconciliation: that of Paula with herself, and that of the spectator with the characters in full self-discovery. [Full review in Spanish]

Is the woman whose adult capabilities are a thin veneer over hysteria a rebellious threat to patriarchal expectations, or a perfect product thereof?
