FRENCH slam Netflix sensation Emily in Paris as a ‘cliche’, while the new series has taken the rest of the world by storm for its witty dialogue, endearing characters and often poignant story lines.
The show follows the exploits of Emily, a 20-something American whose job has relocated her to Paris, as she struggles to adapt to a new city, language and love-life. The series marks a reunion of some Sex and the City greats – Darren Starr as producer and Patricia Field as costume designer – which lends some familiar flavour to the story in the fashion and saucy repartee.
While review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes reported an approval rating of 72%, the French themselves are less impressed.
As Newspaper 20 Minutes put it: ‘The berets. The croissants. The baguettes. The hostile waiters. The inveterate philanderers. The lovers and the mistresses. Name a cliche about the French, you’ll find it in Emily In Paris’.
