Love, Paris Style
Greetings again from the darkness. 18 directors of 18 seemingly unrelated vignettes about love in the city of lights. A very unusual format that takes a couple of segments to adjust to as a viewer. We are so accustomed to character development over a 2 hour movie, it is a bit disarming for that to occur in an 8 minute segment.
The idea is 18 love/relationship stories in 18 different neighborhoods of this magnificent city. Of course, some stand up better than others and some go for comedy, while others focus on dramatic emotion. Some very known directors are involved, including: The Coen Brothers, Wes Craven, Alfonso Cuaron, Alexander Payne, Gus Van Sant and Gurinda Chadha. Many familiar faces make appearances as well: Steve Buscemi, Barbet Schroeder, Catalina Sandino Moreno, Ben Gazzara, Gena Rowlands, Gerard Depardieu, Juliette Binoche, Willem Dafoe, Nick Nolte, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Bob Hoskins.
One of the best segments involves a mime, and then another mime and the nerdy, yet happy young son of the two mimes. Also playing key roles are a red trench coat, cancer, divorce, sexual fantasy, the death of a child and many other topics. Don’t miss Alexander Payne (director of “Sideways”) as Oscar Wilde.
The diversity of the segments make this interesting to watch, but as a film, it cannot be termed great. Still it is very watchable and a nice change of pace for the frequent movie goer.
18 short films about the City of Lights
Delightful film directed by some of the best directors in the industry today. The film is also casting some of the great actors of our time, not just from France but from everywhere.
My favorite segments:
14th arrondissement: Carol (Margo Martindale), from Denver, comes to Paris to learn French and also to make a sense of her life.
Montmartre: there was probably not a better way to start this movie than with this segment on romantic Paris.
Loin du 16ème: an image of Paris that we are better aware of since the riots in the Cités. Ana (Catalina Sandino Moreno) spends more time taking care of somebody else’s kid (she’s a nanny) than of her own.
Quartier Latin: so much fun to see Gérard Depardieu as the “tenancier de bar” with Gena Rowlands and Ben Gazzara discussing their divorce.
Tour Eiffel: don’t tell me you didn’t like those mimes!
Tuileries: such a treat to see Steve Buscemi as the tourist who’s making high-contact (a no- no) with a girl in the Metro.
Parc Monceau: Nick Nolte is great. Ludivine Sagnier also.
I’ve spend 3 days in Paris in 2004 and this movie makes me want to go back!
Seen in Barcelona (another great city), at the Verdi, on March 18th, 2007.
