WATCH PARIS FRANCE WITH A DATE...OR TWO!
Foot Artist | Houston, Texas United States | 05/07/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Have you ever been in a social situation in which everyone isjust as intelligent and intellectual as you? Whether you're a man or awoman, have you ever felt sexually scrutinized by someone so bold and intelligent as to make you feel ill at ease? Think of your wildest sexual fantasy...now think about whether or not you would/could go through with it if the opportunity arose.Paris-France was written by Tom Walmsley and it is based on his novel. The entire movie is about what happens to four people during Easter weekend. Lucy (played by Leslie Hope) and Michael Quick are a married couple who are in business with William, the three run a small literary company. On the evening of Good Friday William is bringing over Randall Sloan (played by Peter Outerbridge). Sloan, as he prefers to be called, has a manuscript for a book he is writing called "Under my Skin." He is an ex-boxer turned writer.Now, a personal note about this film. This is one of my top ten favorite films of all time. It is so outrageous, the first time I saw it I was gasping for air long before the end. I first saw it at one of those arthouse cinemas, and as with many of the films I consider extraordinary, a few `men' in the audience couldn't deal with it, got up, and left. When a film can elicit that kind of reaction, I know I'm onto something worth experiencing. This is not a film you can watch while you're cooking or vacuuming the floors. It is laced with subtleties in the tone of the voices, and expressions that you must not miss. It is a study in frustration - sexual frustration. It is a study of some of the strangest fantasies the human psyche can concoct. It is as sexually explicit as you can get without crossing into porno.The rest of the film will explore everyone's desires and emotions. Michael will wrestle with his homosexuality and the guilt he feels, while Sloan and Lucy explore how frustrating their sexual encounters really are. Also Sloan and William explore their share of sexual frustration. At one point, after having sex, Sloan says to William "I have found out in the last two years that when a guy is staring at me he's not always looking for trouble. Sometimes it's sex. I find that very bold. I don't know if could be bold enough to be gay."PARIS FRANCE will creep you out, make you uncomfortable, frustrate you, and ultimately show you what awaits you in your path to self-discovery. I'm a better man for having traveled similar roads as the people in this movie. What about you? END"
DARING EXPLORATION OF SEXUAL FANTASIES....
Mark Norvell | HOUSTON | 05/20/2004

"I ordered this DVD truly not knowing what to expect considering the low price and everything I'd read about it. I'm amazed at the quality of this print. While there are no extras to speak of, the print is excellent. This Canadian film explores what happens when a writer named Lucy (Leslie Hope), who's stuck in a dull marriage, embarks on a no-holds-barred affair with Sloan (Peter Outerbridge) who's a friend of her husband's gay business partner. Sloan unleashes Lucy's pent up sexual fantasies in ways she's only written about. The film also explores our reactions to sex and all it's colors when an opportunity arises to explore them. This is one of the most uninhibited English language films I've seen outside of a Peter Greenaway film. It's shocking, graphic, funny and serious. It also features acres of equal opportunity nudity (mainly Outerbridge and Hope) that should please both sexes and those who are "curious". Hope plays a woman who aggressively takes an active role in her sexual relationship and is not used. Instead, she uses the man to push her buttons. Hope and Outerbridge deserve to be commended for their ability to play these characters so well considering the demands placed on them emotionally and physically."Paris France" is for adults only and is not for the timid (especially squeamish men). If you can swallow your inhibitions it's a rewarding experience for those who are game. The title is best left explained when you view the film. This is a great deal on an unusual and challenging venture into very sticky territory."
Intriguing and well written story of sexual discovery
Tony Wyman | Salem, Oregon USA | 07/14/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Well-acted and intelligently written film depicting the sexual explorations of two complex and compelling characters. Obviously, this film isn't for the under-18 crowd, but for adults who are interesting in observing the travails of two lovers embroiled in steamy but realistic romantic discovery, this film is good place to start."
