Paris Je T'Aime

Cert: 15
Contains very strong language
Runtime: 2 hours 1 mins

In PARIS, JE T'AIME, celebrated directors from around the world, including the Coen Brothers, Gus Van Sant, Gurinder Chadha, Wes Craven, Walter Salles, Alexander Payne and Olivier Assayas, have come together to portray Paris in a way never before imagined.

Made by a team of contributors as cosmopolitan as the city itself, this portrait of the city is as diverse as its creators' backgrounds and nationalities. With each director telling the story of an unusual encounter in one of the city's neighborhoods, the vignettes go beyond the 'postcard' view of Paris to portray aspects of the city rarely seen on the big screen.

Racial tensions stand next to paranoid visions of the city seen from the perspective of an American tourist. A young foreign worker moves from her own domestic situation into her employer's bourgeois environs. An American starlet finds escape as she is shooting a movie. A man is torn between his wife and his lover. A young man working in a print shop sees and desires another young man. A father grapples with his complex relationship with his daughter. A couple tries to add spice to their sex life. These are but a few of the witty and serendipitous narratives that make up PARIS, JE T’AIME. The one disconcerting sartorial issue is the ever-present Batman hoodies worn by the main character. There must have been a very large placement fee, since the number of scenes where Batman appears is quite stunning and distracting. Petty point, but for some, an important distraction.

An outstanding host of actors including Natalie Portman, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Fanny Ardant, Elijah Wood, Nick Nolte, Bob Hoskins, Juliette Binoche, Emily Mortimer, Catalina Sandino Moreno, Rufus Sewell, Barbet Schroeder, Ludivine Sagnier, Gena Rowlands, Miranda Richardson and Steve Buscemi, grace these vignettes with their larger-than-life personas. Their performances add even deeper resonance to this affectionate love letter to one of the world's most transcendent cities.

Language: French
Genre: Romance
UK release date: 29/06/2007
Starring: Fanny Ardant, Juliette Binoche, Steve Buscemi
Directed by: Olivier Assayas, Frederic Auburtin, Emmanuel Benbihy, Ghurinder Chadha, Sylvain Chomet, Ethan Cohen, Isabel Coixet, Wes Craven, Alfonson Cuaron, Gerard Depadieu, Christopher Doyle, Richard Lagravenese, Vincenzo Natali, Alexander Payne, Bruno Podalydès, Walter Salles, Oliver Schmitz, Nobuhiro, Daniela Thomas, Tom Tykwer, Gus Van Sant
