Paris, je t'aime (R)
In "Paris, je t'aime," celebrated directors from around the world--including the Coen Brothers, Gus Van Sant, Gurinder Chadha, Wes Craven, Walter Salles, Alexander Payne and Olivier Assayas--have come together to portray Paris in a way never before imagined. Made by a team of contributors as cosmopolitan as the city itself, this portrait of the city is as diverse as its creators' backgrounds and nationalities. With each director telling the story of an unusual encounter in one of the city's neighborhoods, the vignettes go beyond the "postcard" view of Paris to portray aspects of the city rarely seen on the big screen. An outstanding host of actors graces these vignettes with larger-than-life personas. Their performances add even deeper resonance to this affectionate love letter to one of the world's most transcendent cities.
