Breakfast in Paris is 1982 Australian romantic comedy.[3][4]


Fashion executive Jackie Wyatt discovers her boyfriend has been cheating on her. She flies to Paris and bumps into photographer Michael who she at first dislikes but grows to love.


The film was shot in Melbourne and Paris.[5] Parkins agreed to star in the film after Lamond showed her a clip of Mullinar in Breaker Morant.[6]

"It's an unashamedly lyrical love story, complete with a sentimental soundtrack by a 42-piece orchestra", said Lamond.[1]
