I thought this was going to be more of a romantic comedy but the wife in this movie is actually really mean. Then it just ends with no resolution of anything. Not much to this movie.

You know how they say a movie can grow on you ? Well, they are right. This movie grew so that I ended up despising it. So boring and pretentious it was, with nothing to say. It was hard to hear (low sound). It was hard to look out, even with gorgeous Paris in the background. I don’t care what the critics say, this movie was a zero for me.

If you are looking to find a film that is not filled with excesses of today's Hollywood, this is for you. Intelligent witty dialogue set in Paris. What more can you ask for? A portrait of a marriage of an articulate older couple much better than A Portrait of a Marriage. Even Jeff Goldblum comes off as sympathetic. Plus a great sound track.

The acting was top notch, but the thread wasn't really believable; not that a film needs to be. Despite the title and the glittery Eiffel Tower ostensibly placed in the background, the crux of the action takes place on side-streets, quaint restaurants and a plush hotel suite, away from the city landmarks; references to the Rue de Rivoli, an initial whirlwind drive where Parisian monuments are perceived at vertiginous speed and skewed enough to make the viewer aware of the surroundings without leaving them to delight in them. There are moments attempting to focus on the realities of the couple, thirty years together with all the baggage the years leave behind, but they stop short, as much is left to the viewer's imagination than is actually expressed. There's a muted perception of love, lust, frigidity, and broken lines of communication, but the dialog is slurred and unintelligible at times. Overall, the film lacks the impact phenomenal films leave on the viewing public.

The worst film ever !!

We remembered Lindsay Duncan in "A Year in Provence" -- great film; she had an excellent performance. This film, however, is possibly one of the most nonsensical, boring masterpieces of all time, and Lindsay and her (film) husband were depressing and quite unattractive. Do not waste your money or time on this turkey....at least the popcorn was good !
