"Paris Can Wait” stars Diane Lane, Arnaud Viard and Alec Baldwin (who appears for about 30 seconds) in this movie written and directed by Eleanor Coppola via the vehicle of her husband, Francis Ford Coppola’s production company, Zoetrope."Paris Can Wait” stars Diane Lane, Arnaud Viard and Alec Baldwin (who appears for about 30 seconds) in this movie written and directed by Eleanor Coppola via the vehicle of her husband, Francis Ford Coppola’s production company, Zoetrope. I mention the matrimonial ties between the producer and the writer/director because ,were it not for that, I doubt if any other film producer would invest in such a project. The film is thin both in terms of substance and character development and, quite simply, is nothing more than a view of French scenery on a road trip to Paris with gourmet dining along the way. As with most French specialty dishes, the presentation is more appealing than the amount of food to be digested and the analogy applies to this film as well. How many plates of appetizing food and rare wines can one member of the audience absorb in the 92 minutes it takes for the couple to arrive at their destination. Ms. Lane and Mr. Viard are fine actors and do their best with the limited material given them but, unfortunately, the audience, like Ms. Lane’s character, would have wanted the trip to Paris to have been faster and with fewer gastronomical stops. I give this film 1 star with a suggestion that theaters offer free Tums or Rolaids with each ticket. Better still, just as “Paris Can Wait’, the viewer might be advised to do so too, at least until the film is ultimately exhibited on TV (if a non-Coppola entity will air it). Expand
