Six in Paris (Paris vu par...)
A sextet of French filmmakers collaborated on Six in Paris (originally Paris vu Par...) Jean Douchet directed the film's first episode, "Saint Germain-des-Pres," the story of the up-and-down relationship between a male model (Jean-Francois Chappey) and an American coed (Barbara Wilkin). Jean Rouch's "Gare du Nord" is a haunting twist-of-fate tale involving a suicidal handsome stranger (Gilles Queant). Written and directed by Jean-Daniel Pollet, "Rue Saint-Denis" unites an experienced prostitute (Micheline Dax) with a garrulous customer (Claude Melki).… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"What most ensemble films lack in cohesiveness, Six in Paris finds in historical context. Forty years later, it is an essential testament of the French New Wave's energy, ingenuity and aesthetic."
‑ Kathie Smith, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"If the six different locales are a standard Cook's Tour of the capital, most of the principals, however fleetingly, make Parisians, not Paris, diverting, if not memorable."
‑ A.H. Weiler, New York Times
"Paris mon amour, 'more than a place, an intellectual climate'"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Notable for the talent that worked on some of the segments; many of these directors, actors and cinematographers would go on to become central figures of the French New Wave."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"The greatest pleasure is seeing an oily, hideous Claude Chabrol and his wife at the time, Stéphane Audran, in his La Muette, playing a more odious version of the bickering, bourgeois couple that Chabrol would later specialize in savaging."
‑ Melissa Anderson, Time Out New York
"Probably the best of the anthology films that were briefly in vogue in the early 60s."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"... one of the strongest and most entertaining anthology films to emerge from the 1960s."
‑ Sean Axmaker, Turner Classic Movies Online
"This is certainly a lot more succesful than New York Stories or Four Rooms."
‑ , Film4
"Disappointingly lightweight."
‑ Tom Milne, Time Out
"Like most sketch films, this is patchy, but the Rouch, Chabrol, and Rohmer segments shouldn't be missed."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"The overall film has a nice, warm feel; this was more of a lark than any kind of social agenda."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
