I Love Paris
I just watched this movie called “I Love Paris,” on dvd. It’s a collection of five minute stories about love, set in different neighborhoods of the City of Love/Light/Baguettes. Different directors, different actors. Most are ok, but a few are devastating. There’s a story by Nobuhiro Suwa starring Juliette Binoche, about a mother in fresh mourning for her son. And another by Frederik Auburtin and Gerard Depardieu, starring Gena Rolands, about a mature couple meeting in a café to discuss their divorce. Amazing. Natalie Portman and Maggie Gyllenhal also fair well. See it and drink some good wine.
And yes, I have been in Paris, and been in love there. I hope you get a chance to go there, too.
