PUERTO RICANS IN PARIS (2015) 3.5 Stars (out of 5)
PUERTO RICANS IN PARIS was first seen one year ago at the Los Angeles Film Festival. It was just released this month and will hopefully make its money back with Video on Demand. It is a simple film that has its moments. Two New York detectives take a case that brings them to work undercover in Paris. They are asked to catch a thief who will flood the fashion market with bootleg hand bags.
I went to see this movie for one reason: Luis Guzman. In my opinion, he is among the finest character actors working in Hollywood today. In this film, he is paired with writer, director and producer Edgar Garcia. Their charming chemistry together is absolutely wonderful. And I think is worth the price of admission. When you add Rosario Dawson and Rosie Perez, you really have quite a good cast. PUERTO RICANS IN PARIS is Directed by Ian Edelman, who is best known for his work on the HBO sitcom, “Making it in America”. Much of the film was shot in Paris and Prague.
