Vincente Minnelli pode ser considerado um dos principais responsáveis por elevar o gênero de filme musical ao status de arte. Ainda que não seja a melhor de suas obras (estas são Agora Seremos Felizes e Gigi), Sinfonia de Paris impressionou o bastante na época a ponto de levar se...

The story wasn't all that bad until they decided to add silly song and dance numbers, which last over 10 minutes long. I was so annoyed with this movie.

Make no mistake about it, An American in Paris is all about the dance. Sure there are vocals and instrumentals and even a bit of a story, but it's all to support the high-stepping promenade. A real technicolor extravaganza.

The final ballet is indeed impressive, Oscar Levant lends his trademark goofy charm and Leslie Caron exudes gamine charm but the base story is trite and its somewhat difficult to see why this is so revered.

A musical for people who don't like musicals. My problem with musicals is how I hate for people to just burst out in song for no reason. What I like about this film is that every musical break relates to the plot of the film. It doesn't necessarily advance the story, but at least...
