Movie Summary

Paris, Je t'aime, or Paris, I Love You, premiered at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival and was also featured at the Toronto Film Festival. The film was produced by Emmanual Benbihy and Claudie Ossard, and it was directed by a total of 22 artists. It is a compilation of 18 short films featuring different areas of Paris, joined together by transitional footage that allows the film to feel like a unified whole. The film has no notable cast members, featuring, instead a general chorus of nobodies. Each cast member appears briefly in a single segment of the film. Areas of Paris featured in the film include, Quartier des Enfants Rouges, Quartier Latin, Quais de Seine, Tour Eiffel, Tuileries, Bastille, Pere-Lachaise, Parc Monceau, Porte de Choisy and others. Each segment has a unique plot that tries to get inside the mind and everyday lives of Parisians. In the Montmartre section of the film, for example, a Parisian man parks his car as he muses over how the all the women are taken. Before he can resolve this thought, he sees a woman in need of his aid and rushes to her assistance. Each segment is equally poignant and honest in its portrayal of human nature, and equally beautiful in its depiction of Paris.moreless

    Uneven but quite pleasant as a two-hour experience that acknowledges the idealized Paris people carry in their heads while wisely veering off the beaten track.
