An American in Paris

July 13, 2009

At the end of the day, how can you not be enthralled by a film that closes with an 18 minute ballet extraveganza that cost almost half a million dollars to make (and that was in 1951). Gene Kelly swoooooooon.

An American in Paris. Paris; it has a grand allure for sleek and sophistication. The only thing that people drink there is champagne and coffee. Deep down inside everyone has is a francophile. (Tom Cruise brain washed Katie Holmes into marrying him at the top of the Eiffel Tower. Barf)

Being a cinephile and fashion obsessor why wouldn’t I want to do the whole “live in Paris” for six months. This is now why I try to practise French everyday. Live the dream.

How can you not love this man? He choreographed the whole film and feels comfortable wearing trousers like this.
