(de) wrote: The writing is by no means original or inspired, it's a basic 'join the dots' recipe with a low budget but director Robert Crombie has still put together a watchable thriller that's been nicely filmed on location with decent acting....a good 'B' movie...
(it) wrote: This was okay, I was expecting more of a bio about Coco's entire life instead this just touches on her childhood and then profiles her throughout her twenties; working in a Paris dress shop and then moving in with a wealthy British man. Not satisfied being a kept woman, Coco designs hats and dreams of moving to Paris to open her own boutique. There's a bit of a love triangle, that's never resolved with her lovers best friend. Shirley MacClaine plays Coco in her later years and is excellent(although I wondered where her French accent disappeared to?) Really her role is only a cameo, appearing at the beginning and end. Speaking of which the ending is abrupt, leaving tons of unanswered questions. 03.30.14. "A chronicle of the life of French designer Coco Chanel (Shirley MacLaine), from her early years in Paris orphanages to her rise to the top of the fashion world. biography. "

(ag) wrote: ?The Girl from Paris? is a long boring movie that will keep you looking at your watch to see when it will end, and it is painfully hard to sit though. The film has some very graphic scenes that portray the birth and slaughter of animals. There was really no need to show these scenes of violence and birth of two dead farm animals. Also, some of the characters are not explained or just flat out creepy. There is this one character, a hang glider, who comes in and out of the background in scenes. The hang glider is seen through out the film, but character of the hang glider is never developed, and it is left up to the viewer to decipher exactly who the hang glider is or what he represents. Another character in the film, the original owner of the farm, is also kind of ambiguous and kind of creepy. The original owner of the farm is torn between the old and new ways of farming brought by a young woman from the city. Throughout the movie the owner cannot decide if he despises the young woman or if he is sexually drawn to her because she reminds him of his late wife. This attraction is just down right disturbing because the age difference between the two is at least 30 plus years. After wasting around two hours of your life, the movie ends abruptly. There is no sense of conclusion, the young woman just gives up on the farm and moves back to Paris. The film does not investigate why the young woman gave up her dream, but rather ends when her dream ends. :rotten:

(br) wrote: When I saw the first 30 minutes of the film, I wasn't sure what to make of it. I had a hard time relating to the protagonist (despite her sexy charm) and I didn't quite understand what these characters in the film were doing (occupation wise, it was rather confusing since I'm not very smart.) But as the story progressed and Griffith and Ford's characters started doing things, I found myself engaged in the story. I cared about the characters, I was intrigued by their relationships, and in some scenes I was charmed. Sigourney Weaver doesn't have much to do here unfortunately, and it is not one of my favorite Mike Nichols films, but I really enjoyed watching "Working Girl". Funny, charming, and emotionally satisfying.
(nl) wrote: Very tense first half but in the second half, it all starts to become a bit obvious. You can see it all coming, unless you're one of the characters. So it's a bit predictable, and she would never leave her baby with someone who is a clearly an active lunatic, but it's very nicely shot in places and overall worth watching.
