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… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"You expect quality to vary from segment to segment, but the misses outweigh the hits by a depressingly high margin."
‑ David Fear, Time Out
"Even the least tales here flit by quickly enough to leave little bad aftertaste, and the best are savored like the last small bites of exquisite soufflés."
‑ Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle
"The bulk of the work, filtered through the idiosyncratic lens of the global art-house, relays a peculiar impression of the city that is at once familiar and displaced."
‑ Luke Goodsell, Empire Magazine Australasia
"Alluring, all in all, and unfulfilling"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Paris, je t'aime feels like a compilation of student films %u2014 imbued with a certain neophyte whimsy, vibrating with life and passion, and fresh in a way that can only come from unfettered enthusiasm."
‑ Brandon Fibbs, Colorado Springs Gazette
"For directors and actors who usually work on projects that take years to develop and months to film, this must have been a really fun lark. For the viewer, it's a full cinematic feast."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"The best segments are as good as film gets; the losers can make you wince. On the whole, the good outweigh the bad and make the film feel like a minivacation in the City of Light."
‑ Richard Nilsen, Arizona Republic
"18 shorts about love for mature art house fans"
‑ Carrie R. Wheadon, Common Sense Media
"Considering just how many cooks there were in the kitchen, Paris, je t'aime came out with a pretty even feeling"
‑ Heather Huntington, ReelzChannel.com
"A fantastic travelogue."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"A little uneven in style, tone and quality. But the picture that emerges of Paris is romantic, cosmopolitan and hopeful."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"The best is saved for last: Payne's 14th arrondissement takes its time to create a Parisian epiphany that both pokes fun at an American tourist (Margo Martindale) and finds grace in her acceptance of a fragile moment of transcendence."
‑ John Hartl, Seattle Times
"The most resonant moments in Paris, Je T'Aime happen to be the bleakest, and they're about immigrants and other outsiders."
‑ Kelly Vance, East Bay Express
"It's an uneven bag of love to be sure, but the hits outweigh the misses."
‑ Bruce Bennett, Spectrum (St. George, Utah)
"A masterful achievement, both as a film and as a heartfelt love letter to one of the world's most romantic cities."
‑ Eric D. Snider, EricDSnider.com
