Paris je t’aime

Posted by redkoireviews on 22/06/2007

Paris je t’aimeWe where on holidays, it was pouring rain and we where bored. So we went to see this film at the New Empire movie theater in Bowral. Like the review we’d seen on ”at the movies‘, we thought it was a mixed bag. The film is a series of 18 short films about love in Paris. Some of them a re brilliant, some of them are pretty average. However there are simply too many of them – I walked out struggling to remember which ones I liked most or hated most.

The theme was also too loose. There where no linkages between the shorts and no shared actors, even the direction and cinematography was really different. Some where funny, some sad, some wistful. My favourites where the one with the blind guy and his actor girlfriend, and the one involving Oscar Wilde.

My Rating: 3 Stars

    I don’t think they were trying to connect the stories. I think the idea was Paris was the ultimate connection and it was a place of endless possibilities or something of that sort. I enjoyed the shorts though. Individually they stood out. As a group they got a little too cliche. Except the vampire thing which came out of no where!
