The new movie "Paris Je T'aime" is far better than my ability to photograph the film's poster. I saw it tonight at the Laemmle Sunset 5 on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood.
There's a unique concept at work here -- something like 18 different directors shot a 6 to 8 minute film about "love" in a different Paris neighborhood. The stories aren't related -- but the unusual format allows each director to feature their own style.
All together, the movie demonstrates why Paris is such a perfect city for cinematic magic.
Gena Rowlands shines in her short, but my favorite was the funny one featuring two mimes.
