Tons of High Resolution Images from PARIS, JE T’AIME

     April 29, 2007

Opening this Friday in very select release is “Paris, Je T’Aime”. If you haven’t heard of the film yet it’s about finding love in Paris. But unlike most films that feature one filmmaker with one story – “Paris, Je T’Aime” has 18 directors making 5 minute short films that each feature a different cast. And these aren’t directors you haven’t heard of as some of the people who made a contribution were Olivier Assayas, Tom Tykwer, Alfonso Cuarón, Sylvain Chomet, Gérard Depardieu, Bruno Podalydès, Gurinder Chadha, the Coen brothers, Isabel Coixet, Wes Craven, Christopher Doyle, Vincenzo Natali, Alexander Payne, Walter Salles and Gus Van Sant.

And these filmmakers brought along some talent as here are some of the actors who are involved – Nick Nolte, Gena Rowlands, Fanny Ardant, Juliette Binoche, Steve Buscemi, Ben Gazzara, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Bob Hoskins, Catalina Sandino Moreno, Emily Mortimer, Natalie Portman, Miranda Richardson, Ludivine Sagnier, Barbet Schroeder, Rufus Sewell and Elijah Wood.

I got to see the movie and while not every short worked for me, as a whole I really enjoyed what the film was trying to do and absolutely recommend checking it out when it finally gets released in your neck of the woods. The best partwas the wide variety of stories that were told. Some involved couples that had been together for a long time and some are about finding love in a most unusual way…

And each director brought their usual charm and flare to their story with my favorite being The Coen Brothers and what they did with Steve Buscemi in the short “Tuileries”. Since each story is so short I’d rather not say anything more than it takes place in the metro station called Tuileries and Steve plays a tourist.

In the next day or two I’ll be posting my interview with Wes Craven and he talks about how he got involved with this collaboration and also what he’s working on now. Until then I hope you’ll enjoy a ton of high resolution images from the upcoming film.

here is the trailer in case you haven’t seen it yet
