Parisian Myth: Opinion of French people about ‘Emily in Paris’
Emily in Paris is an American comedy-drama streaming television series created by Darren Star, which premiered on Netflix on October 2, 2020. The series stars Lily Collins as the eponymous Emily, an American who moves to Paris to provide an American point of view to a French marketing firm. There, she struggles to succeed in the workplace while searching for love and experiencing a culture clash with her “boring” and mundane Midwestern U.S. upbringing.
Many French critics, however, have castigated the 10-episode series, tired of seeing Parisians portrayed as suspicious concierges, unfriendly bakers or waiters, or snobbish, lazy and/or flirty colleagues.
After ‘An American in Paris,’ ‘Funny Face,’ ‘Moulin Rouge’ or ‘Amelie’, the rose-tinted, romanced vision of Paris – with Instagram a new arrival – is once again laid out in all its glory in one of the most-watched series of the moment.Emily in Paris
It is a sugarcoated reality that irritates Lindsey Tramuta, an American writer who has lived in Paris for 15 years.
The American heroine, meanwhile, doesn’t seem to ever take the metro and lives in an attic room once supposedly used for maids that is implausibly big, above a handsome neighbour who is just as implausible.
Tramuta has written ‘The New Paris’ and ‘The New Parisienne’ in which she tries to show there is much more to the city than old-worldly brasseries and corner cafes.
