Jefferson in Paris


One of the obsessive speculations in American history, and Thomas Jefferson, in the years before he became president, had an affair with (and fathered a child), his 15-year-old slave Sally. Jefferson in Paris Jefferson to France followed (as US ambassador to the court of Louis XVI), after the death of his wife friendships and flirting with the French, his relationship with his daughters and slaves of the house (especially Sally), against the veil from the beginning of the French revolution.

Jefferson in Paris is a stunning movie from 1995. This movie literally has no weak scenes and no weak moments throughout the whole movie. I can easily recommend. It has a beautiful storyline. It is not told dynamically, only calmly, with a sense and a certain dose of poetry. Jefferson in Paris without doubt has excellent dialogoues. Friends call me crazy when I tell them I saw the whole movie online more than 10 times. For me it is very undervalued movie. I couldn't believe I haven't found this movie before.... Show more
