Emily in Paris on Netflix: here are several pictures on Paris, France and the French in the series with Lily Collins After Sex and the City, Darren Star returns with Emily in Paris on Netflix. Emily Cooper (Lily Collins) has replaced Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) and the plot is set in Paris, not New York. Except that here, the show, even if it is very good, is much less trashy but above all, full of clichés about Parisians and the French in general. Here are all the clichés that you will see (or have seen) in the series, and which make you laugh.

Beret, baguette and cheese: the winning trio

Upon her arrival in Paris, Emily, played by Lily Collins, multiplies the clichés. In the first episode of Emily in Paris on Netflix, the heroine who arrives from Chicago starts to wear the beret, and takes a baguette with cheese as a lunch break. Between the beret, the baguette and the cheese, all the clichés about Parisians (and the French as a whole) are there. It's as if for Sex and the City, therefore, on the American side, Darren Star had shown an obese Carrie Bradshaw, addicted to burgers and puritanical.

Paris as clean as in a perfume pub

While Lily Collins and Darren Star would like to shoot season 2 of Emily in Paris , Parisians must have dreamed of seeing the streets of Paris on Netflix. Because clearly, they are far, but then very far, from being so clean in real life. It's quite simple, the city of lights has been photoshopped so much that there isn't a single piece of paper, waste or chewing gum on the floor. Paris is so clean in the show that we could (almost) eat on the sidewalks. While in reality, we are forced to watch where we put our feet to avoid stepping into anything …

What is also idealized in Emily in Paris are the Parisian apartments. Emily arrives in a “dream” maid's room, much larger than most Parisian studios. It must be more than 30 square meters while often the studios do not exceed 10 square meters. Without forgetting its incredible view on the roofs of the city and on a very calm small place, almost without cars and especially without horns.

However, Lily Collins does not find the series so cliché and had even admitted to having “lived the same experiences” as her character when she came to the capital. It can be seen that the actress seen in The Mortal Instruments , the creator and the writers have therefore certainly only experienced luxury hotel rooms and were not caught in traffic jams during rush hour.

French people are beautiful and French women always dress on their 31

Well yes, the French are all beautiful kids (lol)! We would also like a sexy neighbor who looks like Gabriel (Lucas Bravo). But we are not that lucky … Well on the other hand, there is another cliché which is a little true in Emily in Paris , the French are very flirtatious. Well, not as much as the Italians (another cliché not so false either), but we defend ourselves. In the series, Emily gets picked up by Gabriel, by her real estate agent, by her client Antoine (William Abadie), by a guy crossed at the party of her friend Mindy Chen (Ashley Park) or by the little brother of her friend Camille (Camille Razat). Cruising is a very Frenchy sport!

Another cliché, and which on the other hand is not always true: Parisians are always well dressed. In all the episodes, his mate Camille, his boss Sylvie (Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu) and all the other girls are dressed as if they were going to applaud a parade in the front row. Chic and glam outfits, brushed hair and natural but worked beauty looks: it really feels like Fashion Week.

Parisians are rude, don't speak English, don't work … And the list goes on.

Well then there too, let's admit that the Parisians are execrable. Admittedly, it's a cliché, but most Parisians are still far from friendly. The “hello”, “thank you” and “goodbye” are not part of their vocabulary (at least not at all). Emily's bosses, Sylvie and Paul (Arnaud Viard) tackle her as soon as she arrives in the box and it could also have happened in real life. We also note the undrinkable character of Lucien (Alexandre Wetter), who becomes funny as he is so bad with the heroine.

And the list of clichés on Parisians / French continues: according to the series, they are protesters to the point of smoking in the offices (while as a reminder it is prohibited, we are not in the 1950s or in Mad Men ), do not don't speak English, work less than Americans (in one scene Emily arrives at the office at 8:30 a.m. but the locals don't open until 10:30 a.m.), they are loitering and even lazy (even the plumber stops and has breakfast instead. to work on the water cut) … In short, the picture is not very pretty to see!

And so the not very nice clichés about the French do not stop there. Still according to Emily in Paris , men cheat on their wives and vice versa because they do not believe in monogamy, are misogynistic or even against the #MeToo movement (even Sylvie, Emily's boss, says she is not a feminist and does not understand all the fuss around the hashtag #BalanceTonPorc). In short, unlike the Puritan Americans, the French would have light manners (hence the “French kiss”, which is the fact of kissing deeply, with the tongue).

And in the same vein, the series also plays on the cliché of the Frenchy nudist, with Camille's father (hello Cap d'Agde).
