Movie Review

A true classic, with the elegant British touch, for better or worse. Sustained by the fantastic performance of the always great Lesley Manville’s, ‘Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris’ is an acclamation to high fashion, to life and the endearing people who make life better for all. We cannot say anything negative about this movie.

It would be akin to ripping Winnie the Pooh apart for not being malicious enough. It is a film that has carefully crafted all the aspects in the art direction with meticulous care, and where each scene is directed with pose and elegance, paying maximum attention to all the details on the cinematographic and technical levels. The costume design is central to this movie, and is given its due importance in its outstanding implementation.

It does contain social criticism of the norms and rules, the aristocracy of the time, but it is also a picturesque, somewhat clichéd but affable portrait of Paris of the era, and its people (some are slightly caricatured, while others are more diffuse). This film does not invite to historical nor political reflection, as it does not delve much in those aspects, and becomes more of an aesthetic experience that provides us with a soft, close, affable and positive view of the world that, in the times we are living, is much appreciated.

Our Opinion

A delightful movie that is technically impeccable and aims straight to our hearts. A perfect viewing experience for one of those days when the mood is grim, it will help to change the vibes for the better.

Movie Reviews

“[An] affable homage to haute couture (…) For the most part, Fabian and his three co-writers have done well to boost the intellect and assertiveness of the novel’s female characters.”

Peter Debruge: Variety

“A love letter to the French capital and its halls of fashion (…) But the human element is what ultimately sells it.”
