Across 18 Parisian neighborhoods, love is veiled, revealed, reinvented and awakened. In Bastille, a man wants to leave his wife for his mistress. In Place des Victoires, a cowboy rides to comfort a grieving woman. Meanwhile, in Faubourg Saint-Denis, an actor wants to end her romance with a student.
Though there’s no shortage of films set in the City of Lights, what is offered by the omnibus anthology Paris, je t’aime is a plurality of perspective—uniting directors as geographically and stylistically disparate as Isabel Coixet, the Coen brothers, Alfonso Cuarón, and Olivier Assayas.
