mixed, a few I enjoyed but a few I didn't like: the Chineese salesman episode, the Vampire one and a few others but I'm sucker for seeing Paris. Two days in Paris opens soon here.

Loved it. Soundtrack is on the way.

Another one I really enjoyed was "Avenue Montaigne". Similar to "Amelie", but much better!

Can't wait for "2 Days in Paris".

And, "La Vie en Rose" is absolutely magnificent.

Mimi, you were up late last night!

I didn't like the vampire one either.

I picked out Juliette Binoche, Maggie G, G Depardieu, and Gena Rowlands, but I missed Nick Nolte unless all he did was light a cigarette on a street corner.

Loved the scenery and was able to understand some of the French.

Yes, he was the father who met his daughter and ended up taking care of the baby in the carriage.

I liked them all. Well-done, and a nice visit. Lots of great cameos.

Well obviously I will need to see it again. Wonder why I didn't recognize Nolte? Asleep at the switch.

I really liked the segment with Nolte, as it's such a nice surprise to find that the apparently sleazeball that's he's playing is just a kindly old grandfather.

Sort of.

Very good movie. (Well, I guess movies!) I really enjoyed it and seeing all the different arrondisments was very cool.

Saw it and loved it....mostly. I intend to buy it when the DVD comes out, so that I can really get into the all the subtle details of character and place. Mimi, thanks so very much for listing all the characters.

I really enjoyed it. Margo Martindale's character was very funny and touching. Her totally American-accented French has given me a complex though - everytime I try to speak French I feel like I am sounding just like she did and it makes me feel even more self-conscious.

I watched the movie with a French exchange student who spent the summer with us, and the segment with Margo Martindale was actually her favorite. She found it very touching and she quite liked the character.
