A beautiful view on life in Paris post world war II
25 October 2007 | by maureen-omalleySee all my reviews

I thought this was utterly riveting - I couldn't turn the TV off even though I was exhausted. It is 1 1/2 hours of an interviewer/camera crew on the streets of Paris trying to speak to people about anything. There are a few dull moments but it gives a fantastic view on life in Paris - some of the people are survivors of World War II; nearly everyone seems to either be sick or have a spouse who is sick; there's the poor man who regularly goes in and out of psychiatric hospitals and considers himself a "playboy"; there's the lottery ticket woman who is stating how angry she is that they're filming her but then turns around and coyly peeks at the camera to make sure they're still filming her; there's the Polish Jew who was able to hide with his French Jewish wife during world war II who was a tailor and recently quit because of a heart attack - and admits shortly before he leaves that his wife died only 9 months ago - sorry I could go on and on but thought it was lovely for anyone who wants a peek at France's social/cultural life of everyday Parisians.
