My old Lady

It has been far, far too long since I last visited Paris.

There was a bit of an unexpected treat on tv last night: the late film on bbc2 was My Old Lady, a comic drama with Kevin Kline and Maggie Smith set in the french capital. It was quite a lovely little text about an American Guy and a doddering old Englishwoman, but the principal effect it had on me was that it made mewant to go. It was set in the centre of the city, so there were some great, rather adoring shots of the quaint french streets. There was a certain romanticism for Paris to the film, and it reminded me of the stories of British and American ex-pats living there in the Twenties. London is awesome, but I still think there is a beauty to Paris which I don't think any other city has.
