Written by Daniele Thomson and her son Christopher, Fauteuils d'Orchestre or "Orchestra Seats" translating to the meaning of the words, is a film with many reasons to love.
A wonderful story and put it under the Paris sky and wonderful sites of the city, each person in this movie has a something that we all can relate with. The comedy portion has lots of heartfelt sentiment.
Catherine, hugely popular (and becoming very wealthy) from her television soap opera, longs for more meaningful and prestigious work. She prepares to star in a Feydeau farce about to open. Jean-François, a piano virtuoso with an international reputation, is preparing for a major Beethoven recital but he's becoming exhausted and disenchanted with the elitism of his milieu. Jacques, an art expert, has gathered an extraordinary and highly personal collection, but it will all be sold off. Catherine, Jean-François and Jacques go to a café where Jessica, a charming girl who recently arrived in Paris from the countryside, witness all those stories upclose.
All the acting is superb, the Effel Tower with the flashing lights is very romantic and fits perfectly with the mood of the film. Jessica (Cécile De France), the main character is so believable and is on the right path to be a great star in a near future.
It is so good to see a great film which its only concern is to make the expectator feel good. There's not one signal of violence in this film, what makes it even more enjoyable to watch.
