Theatrical report

As a romance set in Paris, Orchestra seats (Fauteuils d'orchestre) is much more rewarding than Paris, je t'aime. With fewer characters, all of whom end up interacting at some point, the plot is more cohesive. There's time to examine the people and their situations. By playing one character off against another we get to see more than one side of their personality. It helps to have one screenwriter and one director, too.

Orchestra seats (Fauteuils d'orchestre) is warm, human and touching. If you see it, you'll enjoy it.

The French, drama movie Orchestra seats (Fauteuils d'orchestre) is directed by Danièle Thompson and stars Cécile De France, Valérie Lemercier, Albert Dupontel.
