The Girl From Paris is a stunning film that in its slow pace of life it does not hurry in fact; though some of it is hard to watch (i.e., animal slaughter) it brings you into to this Parisian woman's life as she becomes a farmer and endures through the good times and bad that people and nature offer her. The one thing about this movie that really stands out for me is its steady pace for simplicity; it is not in any way a fantasy; though I found myself as usual wanting to travel, but I'm not implying that that is fantasy, it is simply a chunk of life that could happen to anyone at anytime. It is not epic and it is not grand in the way of blockbuster mega hits, but in life's everyday occurrences it is. Each and every character is raw, because the director so carefully captured each nuance of emotion and the actors were very real, they were not put on and jazzed up, filled with witty one-liners, but were dealing with what they could as it came. Each movement and sentence, each facial expression was filled with emotion, even a small gesture of apprehension was as obvious as it was subtle.
From my own perspective I would recommend this to anyone, but I think many people might have a hard time staying in there seats, if fast paced is there movie thrill, because this is not. But it is as I mentioned before, stunning in simplicity, it was life in an art form, so to speak.
