I am being good.

So, there's the gala I am working on.  I am looking for possible movies about or set in Paris, to be shown in the background during the cocktail hour/silent auction preceding the dinner. And I am really resisting my urge to suggest to the committee that we show some of the films I have found.  Films like...

Last Tango in Paris.  Or Lovers on the Bridge. Or  Henry and June...


  1. Ratatouille
    The Red Balloon
    Les Enfants du Paradis
    Subway (Isabelle Adjani)
    the Bourne Identity has a good Paris chase scene
    Silk Stockings

  2. apologies if you weren't looking for suggestions -- I love films about Paris and couldn't help myself!

    1. Thanks for the suggestions! Although I love Paris, I confess I have not watched a lot of movies about it. In fact, beyond An American in Paris and Midnight in Paris (and the aforementioned Last Tango : ) ) I don't know that I have watched any films about Paris. (I managed to miss Ratatouille, I'm not sure how.)
