Barratier (Les Choristes) seems to be making a bid to be France's new master of sweet nostalgia with a musical bent.

A frothy concoction that thrives on the improvisational creativity found on a stage.

It is a musical comedy/drama set in another time and place that asks you to give yourself over... If you're willing to play along the result is magnifique.

It's clearly old-fashioned entertainment, and while the blue-hairs will dig it, I suspect many of us with brown, blonde, black or red hair will embrace it as well.

A stereotypical 'little' French film that nevertheless comes wrapped in an awfully sweet package.

Those who like their movies (a) cute and (b) in French will go oui, oui, oui all the way home after spending 120 minutes with this rose-tinted homage to the neighborhood music halls of France...

This flaky French import can't stick to one story and can't find a way to resolve its myriad story lines in the proper fashion.

Oh my goodness, I didn't expect this: Paris 36 is The Muppet Show in, you know, Paris in 1936.

Paris 36 is one of those exasperating movies which can't decide what it want to be and, as a result, ends up being not very much as all.

It's a complete confection -- handsome, sentimental. In the end, it works as entertainment.
May 1, 2009
Paris 36 is ill-conceived, predictable, overlong, flatly directed, over-acted, uninvolving, corny, riddled with trite music and smugly self-regarding. Not an unqualified success, one might say.
May 1, 2009
Some of the musical numbers are way too elaborate to have been presented in a suburban music hall, but if you want reality, this isn't the movie you're looking for.
