Ram Bowen and Eddie Cook are two expatriate jazz musicians living in Paris where, unlike America at the time, Jazz musicians are celebrated and racism is a non-issue. When they meet and fall in love with two young American girls, Lillian and Connie, who are vacationing in France, Ram and Eddie must decide whether they should move back to America with them, or stay in Paris for the freedom it allows them. Ram, who wants to be a serious composer, finds Paris more exciting than America and is reluctant to give up his music for a relationship, and Eddie wants to stay for the city's more tolerant racial atmosphere.

I recommend this movie whole heartedly. Some will say that Paris Blues is about love, but I say it is about living life despite love. The movie made me remember that there was actually a time when people dressed well, gathered in smoke filled rooms, and listened to live music. Living in Paris in the 1920s and 30s must have been great-compared to our shabby times where fun is relative to the size of your TV and the number of people who are NOT there with you! There are many actors and actresses in this movie who did not go on to well deserved greatness, but their message is clear: When feeling forced to forsake yourself for the sake of love, choose yourself and you'll have both. Choose love and have neither.
