DullBy a customer from London , 09 Feb 2008
[Highly rated reviewer]I only watched this for half an hour, then turned it off as it was so boring. Short films are rarely engaging, and simply sticking dozens back to back does nothing to make it any more engaging. Some people may love this sort of thing, but really it is very dull.

Paris...By a customer from Cambridge , 21 Oct 2009A great variety of Parisian snapshots~something for everyone ^^
A Mixed bagBy a customer from Northampton , 17 Oct 200920 odd short stories all dealing with love and relationships all tied together because they take place in and around Paris. Sometimes amusing, sometimes sad but mostly melancholy the most entertainment can be had spotting all the high profile names (actors and directors) that were involved in the project.
A canny little filmBy a customer from Harrogate , 11 Oct 2009A canny film to watch on a Sunday afternoon.
Interesting to see a city from an international perspectiveBy UnexpectedDelight (13 reviews) from London , 27 Sep 2009
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideI dont usually like short stories style compartmentalized films but this one actually grew on me as it went on. The compilation and styles of the directors are similar to when you put a playlist of diverse music together on your mp3 player somehow there is an unconscious thread this one being more obviously Paris. I found it interesting to see how each film reflected something that clearly each group of people making them consider of the city. There was an otherness about the film that did come through, that I liked, it made me think that if they tried the same exercise with London, Mumbai, Rio De Janiero, Shanghai, Nairobi, New York what would come from it.
My favourite films of these were: 'Loin du 16o' as it summed up the parallel lives of people in modern mega-cities and globalization, 'Place des Victoires' as Juliette Binoches presence guarantees an excellent performance, 'Quais de Seine' is an education and offers intriguing potential, 'Quartier des Enfants Rouges' is enticing and captures the beauty of unspoken communication, and 'Place des Fetes' is charm itself tinged with sadness.
Dull too!By JackMorganlaw (1 review) from Mitcham , 23 Sep 2009I couldn't agree more with the last review; unengaging, dull and ultimately disappointing.
I think for those who know Paris intimately the scenes will have more of a nostalgic, relative appeal - but on a cinematic level I found most stories lacked direction, and seemed to end abruptly leaving confusion and irritation in place of satisfaction.
Sorry Art-house lovers. I like Art-house too - but not this.
