"Paris Can Wait" is a Movie to See
It is the story of Anne, a woman of a certain age, who is in Cannes with her film-producer husband. When he has to fly off on business, Anne hesitantly accepts an invitation from his French colleague to return to Paris in his car.
And with that, she is off on an unexpected adventure.
While she wants to get to the city as quickly as possible, Jacques is in no hurry. He wants to stop and eat at great restaurants and see the countryside. “Paris can wait,” he tells her.
Anne is played by Diane Lane. Jacques is played by Arnaud Viard. And Anne’s husband is played by Alec Baldwin in a small part.
The film is a romantic tour. Everywhere they go is gorgeous. Even a service station where they stop for gas is picture perfect.
If you want ugly reality, this is not the movie for you. If you want a 90-minute visual vacation, see “Paris Can Wait.”

Elgin, not feeling this one I'm afraid.ReplyDelete
My wife was telling my buddy about it, and it didn't grab him. It worked for me. I like road movies.Delete
