Not much to say about that
3 July 2017 | by proviantSee all my reviews

'A Lady in Paris' is pretty mediocre film, it's not bad at all - script is well structured (although trivial with its theme), acting is from finest class, direction is smooth and without too many stylish exravanganzas. The film is not bad, it is quite good actually - technically speaking. But the problem is - it is not very memorable. The film has all the elements to be good drama or comedy, but it lacks something. For me the film felt lifeless - the two main actors did stellar job, but their dialogue was boring. It was very easy to let ones mind to wonder while watching the film. Not bad, not good, simply unmemorable.

Even other reviews for this film were boring.
