Dans Paris Review


Very Good
Can we take a moment and talk about Romaine Duris? Not to stray away from the subject of film, but where did this guy come from? The first time I saw him was in a film called L'Auberge Espagnole back in 2003, playing a humdrum student abroad living with a bevy of bodacious babes and a few quixotic chaps in a Spanish apartment.
