Paris, je t’aime

Synopsis: Stories Of Love, From The City Of Love

Fall in love with the most romantic city in the world… Paris, the City of Light. This critically acclaimed, box-office smash combines visions from the world’s top directors — the Coen brothers (Fargo), Alexander Payne (Sideways), Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting) — and some of America’s top stars — Natalie Portman (Closer), Elijah Wood (The Lord Of the Rings), Juliette Binoche (Chocolat) — who together create a panoramic portrait of this photogenic city. Find yourself transported and maybe transformed by these sexy, romantic, haunting, dramatic and beautiful stories. Paris, Je T’Aime goes beyond the “postcard” view of Paris to portray aspects of the city rarely seen on the big screen, revealing its Parisian heart and soul and leaving you with a vision that will last long after the film is over.

Paris, je t’aime 8.0

A pastiche of 20+ unrelated short films, ‘Paris, je t’aime’ tackles the various ways that love can manifest itself… in “The City of Love”. As filmed by a series of different directors, featuring a variety of well known actors, the overall effect is very satisfying and moving.

As one can imagine, some segments work better than others, and some are more enjoyable with a large group (notably the humourous ones!), but even the weaker ones are good and the amazing ones (“Bastille”, “Tour Eiffel”, “Faubourg Saint-Denis”), completely make up for them.

As far as I’m concerned, it’s a must-see film.

Nota bene: a New York equivalent (‘New York, I Love You’) has been put together, but apparently it isn’t nearly as successful. This remains to be seen… 😉
