Competently shot, insufferable content
26 September 2014 | by james-asmusSee all my reviews

Looks fine. Lovely settings are underutilized.

But at least throughout the pilot, the characters are all bland, self-involved, and terminally derivative. I wouldn't want to spend another minute with any of these characters even it offered an ACTUAL trip to Paris.

There are plenty of interminably talky indie films out there that actually deliver some life, some punch, or some startling insight. None of the boring conversations in this pilot contain any of those - or anything else that ultimately proved worthwhile.

2/10
