  1. Anthology films usually work better in theory than execution, but this feature parade of shorts is a blithe, worldly, and enchanting exception.
  2. Even if you don't like the stories, the filmmakers seem incapable of finding a corner of Paris that is not photogenic.
  3. The masterpiece of the bunch is the last, wonderful piece by Alexander Payne ("14eme Arrondissement").
  4. The best episodes have the emotional resonance of full-length features, and yet I didn't want them to be a moment longer than they are.

    Paris je t'aime is truly a breath of fresh air. Many modern American movies are thick with plot, drama and action just for sake of having a discernible 'wow' factor, but Paris je t'aime is a clever little movie that is really just a combination of short love stories that take place within Paris--ranging anywhere from divorce, to monster love, to love of a child.

    It was great to go to a movie and not have to invest so much of myself to it. The stories are so diverse that you really get to experience a wide variety of lives and situations, a few of which are bound to touch you in some way.

    After seeing this movie I figure it was made for the directors, critics, etc., not the general public. Maybe if I had been to Paris I would have enjoyed it more, but we were tempted to leave midway. Full Review »

    The collection of vignettes features notable sketches with many well-known actors--some of them taking their hand at directing. Nearly each vignette is either pleasant or moving on its own, and together it's a wonderful showcase in Paris. Full Review »
