We (early 60s, slightly boho, non-yahoo couple) are considering a trip to Paris during the first week of July. Two questions: 1) Is it crazy to consider visiting Paris in July? and 2) Besides the D'Orsay and the Louvre, what are the don't-miss attractions? Thanks for helping with the vacation of a used-to-be-young couple.

What stores in Paris sell salty liquorice candy? I'm aware of one store (Käramell) that sells the candy by weight, but I'm really looking for a store that sells pre-packaged salty liquorice candy products, such as Venco Topdrop Hard Zout. I've had no luck in any of the chain supermarkets, so have you seen salty liquorice products in any smaller, independent Parisian stores?

Does anyone know of a good place for weight training in Paris? Having both a squat rack (not the same thing as a smith machine) and a place to do deadlifts is mandatory; having local expertise in Olympic style lifts (e.g. clean and jerk, snatch) is a strong plus, but maybe too much to hope for. As always, cheaper is better. [more inside]

French Movie Name. I just can't remember the name of that french movie, it's happens entirely in one night in all over Paris. There was a football (soccer) match, some guys were watching it on a TV in the street, the guy or someone near him broke it and they wanted to kill him and the movie went all insane going all over the place and all over Paris with people getting killed all over the place (for what I can remember).
