Let Paris court you

-A A +A
By Kelly LeVan

“Paris, je t’aime” absolutely charmed me. The film looks at France’s capital city from the backseat of a car, from a subway station, from restaurants, from baby cribs, from jail, from deathbeds. In 18 five-minute shorts, it shows 18 different arrondissements, or districts, from the eyes of a paramedic, a traveling salesman, a tourist, a blind man, a vampire.Although the collection is distinctly French, it includes several actors and directors working outside of their home countries. Canadian, German, Nigerian, Spanish, Brazilian – everyone adopts the city of lovers as his or her own.Watch Steve Buscemi get decked by a Frenchman in Joel and Ethan Coen’s tribute to Tuileries. Wander along the Parc Monceau with Nick Nolte for a few wonderful minutes directed by Mexican Alfonso Cuarón, famous for his feature-length film, “Y Tu Mama Tambien.”Visit the Place des Victoires arrondissement, where Japanese director Nobuhiro Suwa pairs Juliette Binoche with Willem Dafoe, who plays death, which is a cowboy.Australia’s Christopher Doyle sets his piece in the Porte de Choisy, Chinatown – but a distinctly Parisian Chinatown with a flair for musicals.
