Paris, je t'aime: Top 3 stories

Updated on June 2, 2016

"Paris, je t'aime" or "Paris, I love you" is a combination of multiple short movies directed by different directors. Eventually, you lose the count of how many short movies you watched while watching this movie. I had to look it up on Wikipedia to see how many short movies I just watched and there were twenty in total. Some of them you enjoy a lot, some of them are funny, some of them are sad and some of them are boring. And there are two things connect all of these twenty stories: Love and Paris. One very natural question comes into mind after you finish watching it: Which stories I liked the best?

Naturally, I asked it to myself and was able to pick three of these short movies as my favorites.

"Tuileries" by Joel and Ethan Coen

This is the one with American tourist sitting and waiting for his train in Paris metro station called Tuileries. Steve Buscemi, Coen brothers' favorite actor, plays the American tourist. If you're familiar with Coen brothers' work you've definitely seen him in "Fargo" and "The Big Lebowski". I'm not a big fan of Coen brothers but I liked how absurd and funny it got as it unfolded without loosing the sense of reality completely. Typical Coen brothers humor but ends before it gets too boring. That's probably why I enjoyed it.

Tour Eiffel

In this segment Jean-Claude, who is a young boy, tells a story about how his parents met. His dad is a mime artist and he's alone. One day he gets out and gets in trouble for making fun of tourists around Eiffel tower and goes to prison. He meets a woman in the same cell he's in and the woman is also a mime artist. They fall in love and get married. This is just a positive and short movie to watch that makes you smile throughout.

Faubourg Saint-Denis

A blind guy receives a phone call from his girlfriend starting with the words "...There are times when life calls out for change..." and assumes that she wants to break up with him. Hangs up the phone. And we begin seeing his memories about how the relationship started, developed and declined packed into four-five minutes and it's really nice. And of course, Natalie Portman looks cute. You might even enjoy the little surprise in the end of this short movie if all the other short movies before this didn't steal your attention. I realized that it gets really difficult to pay attention when you have this many different people and stories in a movie.


Which three movies did you like the most?
