Diane Lane is such a sincere actress that she draws you in when you least expect it, with a laugh or a look... . "Paris Can Wait" is about marriage, even though an "unmarried" pair share the screen most of the time. We know it's deeper than the beautiful food and scenery. That's just a superficial reading. Sure the film indulges our senses, deliberately trying to put us there - in the car, at the restaurant, on the river bank - in a visceral way. So there's that. But Eleanor Coppola is too keen of an observer, she's spent too much time being "seen and not heard", or maybe not even being seen at all, that she wouldn't make the story merely about the food. Rather, everything is defamiliarised by what surrounds it; we dance around the core of a place or a feeling and never quite arrive, and maybe that's okay because what is happening is real.
