This is a good movie, but not a great one, which is what I was expecting from a filmmaker as
skilled as Martin Scorcese. The Paris settings are gorgeous. It's beautifully shot and well acted, and the production values are all top-notch, but the storytelling is ponderous and way too deliberate. There were many moments that could have been trimmed without losing any important plot points. I found my mind drifting off a couple of times and caught myself checking my watch, which is never a good sign. That said, I'll go to any movie directed by MS and can always find qualities that only he will deliver. My wife and daughter enjoyed it, but also felt it was too long and slow.
