What it's about:

Paris, Je T'aime is about the plurality of cinema in one mythic location: Paris, the City of Love. Twenty filmmakers bring their own personal touch, underlining the wide variety of styles, genres, encounters and the various atmospheres and lifestyles that prevail in the neighborhoods of Paris.

What the critics say:

"Paris Je T'aime is a poignant and ultimately rewarding experience. It offers something for everyone, and provides an insightful, multi-cultural look at the City of Lights."
Stax, IGN Movies

"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

"A connoisseur's delight: two hours of short films celebrating the most romantic city in the world."
Alan Morrison, Empire Magazine

"There are a couple of unquestioned triumphs, a couple of unmitigated disasters and the rest fall somewhere in between the two extremes - but it winds up being somewhat more satisfying in the end than many films of this type."
Peter Sobczynski, eFilmCritic.com

"Payne's film alone would be worth the price of admission."
Carina Chocano, Los Angeles Times

"Anthology films usually work better in theory than execution, but this feature parade of shorts is a blithe, worldly, and enchanting exception."
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

"Next to Google Earth, this is the coolest way to get an overview of the City of Light and its particular je ne sais quoi."
Matt Stephens, E! Online
Through the neighborhoods of Paris, love is veiled, revealed, imitated, sucked dry, reinvented and awakened.
