Paul: I don't know what's happening. I don't trust myself when I'm in love. I get nervous and say the wrong things or I start examining, evaluating, calculating what I say. I say "Think it will rain?" She responds, "I don't know." Then I wonder if she's even interested. It all scares me to death. Yes, scared to death. A friend once told me having a fuck buddy is better than falling in love. I think he's right. Rain makes flowers grow and snails happy. That's a fact. But if a girl loves me she starts ...

Navel-gazing Parisian reconciliation montage
3 January 2010 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

Apparently this rather languid French flick is something of an homage to the New Wave. There's quite a bit of all manner of homage running throughout in fact, with symbols namechecking JD Salinger and even - with a bedtime story concerning a cartoon wolf called Lulu - the resonance of another unrepentantly Parisian film, la Séparation. If Christian Vincent's film is about the rupture of a family unit then Honoré's concerns is re-composition, two brothers and estranged parents grope to rediscover their mutual centre of gravitation.

Inevitably it's all about style though, which often means simply filming on location, Dans Paris indeed. There are a number of quirks to make us mindful of the disjunct connections the family have to one another - an early break in the fourth wall as Louis Garrel addresses the camera, sped-up and fast-cut sequences, a touching final phone call where Romain Duris and his estranged girlfriend begin to sing their conversation along with the (non-diegetic) soundtrack. I found the capricious narrative trying and the tale wilfully inconclusive, despite a suggestion of schematic form. The acting's average too. 4/10
