Paris je t’aime

I saw the movie Paris je t’aime last night at The Colonial Theatre in Keene (it’s a fantastic place to see movies, but they could use a more skilled projectionist).

The film, which is really 18 short films spliced together, was the cinematic equivalent of having tapas for dinner: some segments were beguilingly, others were self-indulgent and out of place. On balance, though, the film is at least slightly more than the sum of its parts, and I’d recommend it (my favourite of the 18 was Place des fêtes, directed by Oliver Schmitz, starring Aïssa Maïga and Seydou Boro).
