“Adieu Paris”, last film by Edouard Baer

Adieu Paris

is Edouard Baer’s sixth film as a director. The actor and filmmaker follows the reunion of a group of friends of a certain age in a chic restaurant in Paris. For this film about aging friendship, he brought together a cast of big names in French cinema: Pierre Arditi, Benoît Poelvoorde, François Damiens or even Isabelle Nanty and Gérard Depardieu. “Adieu Paris” is dividing the critics, with Allociné’s aggregator giving it an average rating of 2.8/5. Le Figaro is one of the conquered, hailing “a bittersweet comedy” which “paints the portrait of an endangered generation”, “men who are no longer in tune with their time” (Télé Loisirs, which nevertheless regrets that “the dialogues do not fly”).

For Le Parisien, “Adieu Paris” “is often hilarious, grating, sometimes annoying”, particularly succeeding in “to bring together brilliant numbers of actors”. La Croix believes, however, that the film “drags, is uneven, like any meal, with its hollows and its ups and downs, a little heavy like a banquet that is too long, the sauce doesn’t really take”. Télérama is much more categorical in qualifying the feature film as “rancid, boring, badly acted”. It is up to the viewer to make up their own mind!

“The Promises”, with Reda Kateb and Isabelle Huppert

This political drama, presented in the official selection at the Venice Film Festival, follows the journey of a mayor of a suburb of 43, determined to save a city, helped by his chief of staff.
