Directed by Christophe Honore
Produced in 2006
Main Language - French with English subtitles
One of the surprise hits at last year’s Cannes film festival, Dans Paris stars two of the most exciting actors currently working in European Cinema: Romain Duris (The Beat that my Heart Skipped) and Louis Garrel (The Dreamers). The story unfolds around Christmas, when Paul (Duris), in deep depression following a break-up, moves in with his divorced father (Guy Marchand, fantastic) and his younger brother (Garrel). The suicide of Paul’s sister haunts all three men.
The film is directed by Christophe Honoré, who made the intense and shocking Ma Mère, yet though the subject matter sounds heavy, Honoré cleverly and affectionately pays homage to the French New Wave, breaking the fourth wall in the opening scene, where one of the characters confesses he is not the protagonist; at another point two characters break into song at an unexpected moment. The depiction of familial relationships, the highs and lows of romance and the effects of depression are beautifully captured, and in spite of the potentially bleak material, Dans Paris is a fresh and funny joy throughout.
Distraught after the end of a long relationship, Paul (Romain Duris) moves back into his father's apartment where his womanising brother, Jonathan (Louis Garrel) still lives. When Paul takes to his bed and refuses to rise, his father and brother both try their own methods of coaxing him from his depression, yielding mixed results. Director Christophe Honoré deftly alternates mood and tone in this entertaining, witty and sensitive story of love and heartbreak set in a gorgeously atmospheric Paris.
