When he arrives at the unremarkable Ontario town of Paris, a French tourist will have to test his ability and willingness to cross the language barrier.
Paris, London, Copenhagen, Delhi, Cairo, Zurich, Brussels and Dublin. What do these places have in common? They’re all about an hour’s drive from each other if you’re travelling southwest of Toronto. All of these Ontario towns would surely be major disappointments if you’ve visited their namesakes, and for the Francophone protagonist of Paris, Ontario, the self-proclaimed “prettiest little town in Canada” holds little more than disappointment. With witty dialogue that rebounds back and forth between its two lead actors, and photography that captures the quaint beauty of small town Ontario, Paris, Ontario is a whirlwind of laughter and stress.
