In one scene of the film, where Jonathan walks in front of the cinema, two movie posters are shown. One is for A History of Violence, a film which was also released in cinemas in France via the same distributor as this film. The other is for Last Days starring Michael Pitt, who co-starred with Louis Garrel in The Dreamers. See more »
This movie is so underrated by IMDb users! Seriously, this is one of the 00's best movies, a french masterpiece made by Honoré. I know that french style of doin' movies it's not a easy thing to see. But really, Dans Paris makes everyone think about their own life, their own problems, affairs, visions of life! The way Garrel and Duris do their characters so likable, so human, so real in their lives, in their ultra sensitivity is splendorous. Although Dans Paris have some..amateur filming job, it wins in other ways like the BSO, that is amazing, having songs that have 30 years, and others almost unknown. This movie have a completely different way to see life, and to explain it. Honoré have future, and some people know it. Others prefer to wait for some other hollywoodie things, same stories, same boring (millionaire) guys. BTW, if you really want to see how cinema is evolving, you must watch this movie. Swear it.
