Ah, Paris... the City of Light has inspired so many paintings, songs, novels... and how many movies? From TV to the silver screen, Paris has been depicted so many times, although with variable accuracy....
For instance, recent American Netflix series "Emily in Paris" has offered a countless series of clichés concerning the French and their capital that both annoyed and amused French viewers. From berets to high heels, the Netflix version of Parisians are shown smoking everywhere, even at the gym!
No matter how exaggerated this depiction might have been, French viewers watched -- and some even enjoyed -- the Netflix show... the series ranks third in the poll (with 21%) of the top 5 English-speaking productions according to the Babbel poll.
Another example shows a genuine taste for clichés concerning the French (or maybe self-mockery): Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris" (2011) which takes the first spot (41%), followed by animated hit "Ratatouille" (27%).
