Paris Blues

From the smoky cellar bistros of Paris' Left Bank comes this tender, bittersweet tale of two American expatriate jazz musicians (Paul Newman, Sidney Poitier) and the women in their lives (Joanne Woodward, Diahann Carroll). Flavoured with the bold style of the French "New Wave" - black & white photography, real locations, emphasis more on character than plot - "Paris Blues" captures both the hot and cool in the world of jazz. Co-starring Louis Armstrong and featuring a great Duke Ellington score, this is a must-see for jazz fans.
