4.0 out of 5 stars intimacy and transference, January 9, 2010
This review is from: Dans Paris (DVD)
new wave movies are about relationships and intimacy. dans paris does a wonderful job of showing how the ability to attach as an adult is fostered in our family life as children. the only people these two brothers can really attach to are each other. the older brother was abandoned physiclly by his beloved sister, emotionally by his father, physically and emotionally by his mother and has come to fear abandonment again too much to be able to trust his girlfriend to be faithful and sets her up to fail. the brother is emotionally undeveloped because his abandonment occurred when he was quite young. none of this is spelled out. but the confusion and struggle of this very painful family life and their inabilty to move forward is beautifully developed and the emotions are palpable. i think that fear of losing the people we love is a more freqent obsticle to achieving intimacy than many people realize and the inaility to trust and take the risk of loving is very common. this is a very powerful exploration of how certain problems in being able to love and commit or even just grow up occur. i found it a deeply moving film..

Elizabeth. I need to take you to France. After one hour in a French cafe, sipping cafe au lait, listening to the French couple at the table next to us -- you will want to slash your wrists. They are self-indulgent whiners who pathetically ramble on without ever getting to the point. Just like this movie.
