Paris Can Wait

Paris Can Wait ★★★

Not too bad, it doesn't really need as many bits of dramatic character histories as it has. I really enjoyed seeing the landscapes and listening to the relaxing music.


I was feeling I left this short by not including the family tree of the director, Eleanor Coppola, who is also very well known for her director work of the groundbreaking documentary Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse. This is the great documentary about the behind the scenes of Apocalypse Now that won an Emmy Award.

She also happens to be the wife of the director of Apocalypse Now (Francis Ford Coppola), mother of the director of Lost in Translation (Sophia Coppola), mother of the director of CQ (Roman Coppola), aunt of the star of Raising Arizona (Nicolas Cage), aunt of the star of Rushmore (Jason Schwartzman), and sister-in-law to ADRIAN! in Rocky (Talia Shire). It's truly amazing that every single person in this family tree has at least two works writing, acting or directing that is worth a watch: Paris Can Wait, The Godfather, Virgin Suicides, Moonrise Kingdom, ConAir, The Darjeeling Limited, Rocky IV.

To cap it off, Eleanor has directed behind the scenes documentaries for both of her children directors and her husband, which is awesome.
