Paris qui dort

René Clair France, 1925

Dally's rating of the film The Crazy Ray

Clair plays around with ideas of isolation and class through the bending of time in this characteristically charming and witty film. Along the way, the filmmaker explores the lackadaisical boredom of youth. The scenes in, around, under and along the edges of the Eiffel Tower are still thrilling decades removed.
