PICTURE PARIS
December 17, 2012  | By David Bianculli

HBO, 9:00 p.m. ET

 
This 2012 film short stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus in a dark comedy directed and written by her husband, Brad Hall. The Veep star plays a wife and mother whose children are about to leave the nest empty – a nest she’s been filling with romantic dreams of Paris. But when the time comes, her husband (D.W. Moffett) doesn’t want to go, and doesn’t want her any more, either. So she packs off to Gay Paree anyway, where fantasy clashes with reality. This short movie is darker than you might expect, and more vigorously subtitled – but concludes with a pair of sudden twists. One satisfying, one bizarre – but definitely not mainstream.
