Very fun watch but loaded of clichés and American arrogance
A bit of a mixed review for this show:
(+) It is light hearted, to be watched for some fun, to pass some time, whenever you don't want to watch anything serious. It only shows the center of Paris (therefore beautiful touristic parts) and the rich life. The main character is pretty, wears colourful clothes.
(-) It is full of stereotypes on France and French people. It would be fine if it were only the light hearted ones (food and cigarettes) but it goes beyond that. It shows that showers often don't work in France because of old buildings ? Not the case, our water system is great. Men often pee in the streets in front of everyone ? No. The main character wants to bring American marketing ideas, and complains that a lady is shown walking naked (from the back only) for a perfume ad, saying it's sexist and that women should be fully clothed, that America wouldn't accept this ad due to a naked woman. She finds it inappropriate and not in the actual feminist context. Does she even know feminism these days has become accepting a woman's body and what she choses to wear or not to wear? Also, isn't America the one country that oversexualises women? Has she even seen American singers, how inappropriate they are in their clips ? Their oversexualisation is way beyond a perfume ad where a woman is simply seen naked from the back.
