This is reviewing the 1996 Oliver Assayas film, nb. I'm sorry- a) I'm a forty year old, without kids. There are kids in my immediate family, though. b) I sort of feel, it does me good, ingrained gratitude exercise- always review things you see, films that is - part of slowing down, realising people. But I stick to a framework, for reviewing. Is't true? The truth of it, is... in... Someone's reaction, to being an extra, or a general dogsbody, on a film set? I don't know. what happens? nb I give the game away, so don't read this part if that's not what you want. It's mostly in French, but an international cast use English, pertimes. I don't sign up to national boundaries myself necessarily, but as this is slightly a tale of culture shock- a Chinese actress comes to Paris, and so, one gets that distance- people take trouble, to have manners with her- and so, tagging along with her, we the viewer get a bit of insight, into a scene- which, to be fair, isn't very happening! but that's ok. What do I think? So. OK, you may feel, you get passive smoking, merely from watching. Or the mood sort of oppresses. I didn't find. It's quite bubbly. True, again, with Carey Mulligan's Dirty Pretty things or whatever , Margot Robbie's barbie, or even Ben Stiller in Dodgeball- ha ha, I make a point about sexualisation ( but people meanwhile still feast on me body. ) The latex gear. I'm giving it a pass. It's reasonably fun- wears a bit thin, didn't watch it all in one go. A tout a l'heure- nice to hear French. Bye.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This series effectively captures the dramatic monotony behind the production of making a TV show, but its pace is slow. Between critiques of the film industry and the slight surrealism, Irma Vep occasionally sets a meandering, convoluted pace. The characters and dialogue can be thought-provoking at times. Overall, this series may be more enticing to older viewers or fans who are familiar with the classic film.
