slow and not realistic
29 August 2014 | by alphatango241See all my reviews

This show tries to copy a Woody Allen or a French film d'auteur. Unfortunately, it ends up being just slow, pompous, and snobbish.

It's also a completely unrealistic description of expatriates in Paris. First, the expatriates community barely interacts with the French. Second, French "high society" doesn't mix up with foreigner... even Americans. Third, most of the expatriates are young professionals who share flats and work!

Finally, using French actors who don't speak English make it very difficult to believe their acting, as the message they deliver is not in sync with the emotions they are supposed to go through.
