In which I attempt to watch every film in The Criterion Collection and end up watching a lot that aren't. Click here for the rating system.


Under the Roofs of Paris

"A French talkie."

Here's another one of those movies that The Criterion Collection calls "laugh out loud" that isn't all that funny. It isn't all that bad either, it just isn't all that anything. René Clair's 1930 love story takes place in the tenements of Paris as a street singer and a gangster vie for a young woman's affections blah, blah, blah... I'm just quoting the Criterion synopsis now, so I'll stop.

Favorite Moments: Nothing stands out.
