  1. zohen lux's rating of the film Parisienne


  2. Muriel's rating of the film Parisienne

    Like DIVINES, another vibrant, interesting tale of young women about the city filmed as outsiders and hunters - femmes qui ont 'peur de rien'. But: both films are let down by conformist/sensationalist endings.

  3. Allison Rung's rating of the film Parisienne

    Excellent portrait of young womanhood, laying out Lina's erratic (but slow-burning) self-definition as she attaches to and detaches from various Parisians. The immigration narrative underlines both her vulnerability and her strength, without veering into preachiness.

  4. choupinet's rating of the film Parisienne

    Lina était une fille très admirable et charmante.

  5. hemachandra's rating of the film Parisienne

    Not a ground-breaking film, but certainly an interesting character study with strong performances, especially from the lead, Manal Issa.

  6. ninchok's rating of the film Parisienne

    One of the best films of 2015-2016 that I've seen.

  7. Sabah Haider's rating of the film Parisienne

    A strong debut performance by the lead actress, and a very believable portrayal of how hard it is to be young and trying to carve out a life (and a home) for yourself in a new place. The Paris that Danielle Arbid shows is clearly inspired by a personal familiarity and as such, some of the details are very poignant.

  8. Dada Kubin's rating of the film Parisienne

    Politics: there’s no way of escaping it - especially if you’re an immigrant - even if you declare yourself as non-political and hang out with both royalists and leftists, like Lina does. She’s battling for the right to decide for herself what to do with her life, and it starts with the right to decide over your own body. But that’s politics as well - “Peur de Rien” is a good reminder of that.

  9. Bill's rating of the film Parisienne

    What a wonderful movie. Especially with illegal immigration and refugees on everyone's mind nowadays, this movie humanizes the issue and reminds us that we're dealing with fellow human beings with their own individual stories--yet it's never preachy and accepts complexity. Acting was top notch too.

  10. Fabio Souza's rating of the film Parisienne

  11. Lillié Hayes's rating of the film Parisienne

    Interesante película que refleja la sociedad francesa ante los inmigrantes. Quienes se compadecen, quienes critican, quienes se quedan a apoyar una causa ajena a la propia. Manal Issa : excelente y joven actuación

  12. maicco.ferreira's rating of the film Parisienne

    Nice acting. Not so predictable and VERY emotional. Wonderful story!

  13. luminous's rating of the film Parisienne

  14. namsai k.'s rating of the film Parisienne

    i really love this. it's a coming of age but also, idk, lina is already a heroine in a way. subtle and so beautiful.

  15. msmichel's rating of the film Parisienne

    Danielle Arbid directs this fine film looking at the migration experience to France through the eyes of a young Lebanese girl. Based in part on the director's own experiences the film feels genuine and gives great commentary not just on the immediate subject manner but on many topics of life in modern day France. Manal Issa impresses here in the lead.

  16. Jeremiah Johnson's rating of the film Parisienne

    I didn't notice it was a period film, the production was not so heavy and also the university students now dress just same. Really good film and great lead actress. Her face is otherworldly.

  17. somerseson's rating of the film Parisienne

    Not really worth the effort. if the film doesn't have a huge amount to say I do not know why it has to be 2 hours long. I felt like it could have been edited more brutally and it would have been more affecting, also the final shot feels wrong and the lead performance is fine, but not particularly memorable - 2 out of 5

  18. Angus George Alexander Brown's rating of the film Parisienne

    Gritty yet optimistic. Even if it takes a while to get going, everyone living in the 21st Century should see this film.

  19. David R Williams's rating of the film Parisienne

    I'm a bit torn here. At its most basic a coming of age story with great performances across the board and a special nod to Issa who literally radiates. Unfortunately it begins repeat before bringing up questions of freedom and liberty and race and nationalism and people are just people aren't they (sometimes yes sometimes not). The end feels fake - a hollywood moment complete with freeze frame.

  20. Stevie M's rating of the film Parisienne

    Despite a convincing lead performance from Manal Issa, there just wasn't enough depth in the character to make me want to genuinely be on her side.

  21. Drew.'s rating of the film Parisienne

    It is impossible to spend time in Paris without dating a married man, a drug dealer, and a curly-haired leftist. This is fact. (Great movie!)

  22. kowalski's rating of the film Parisienne

    extraordinaire extremement gut magnifique

  23. Alice Perigoe's rating of the film Parisienne

  24. Robert H. Stevens's rating of the film Parisienne

    The story of a girl struggling to find her place in a new city that doesn't embrace her the way she had hoped, coming from a difficult family situation in Lebanon. She struggles to make friends, to make a living, and most direly, to maintain approval for residency permits. A highly relatable film carried by a tender performance from Manal Issa.
