Paris Je t’aime: Cinema 2.0?

August 9, 2007 at 2:26 pm Leave a comment

How would you describe an assembled package of eighteen five minute shorts, neatly woven and transitioned? a next generation of cinema i.e. cinema 2.0?? The stories, directed by different directors around the world, show 18 (originally planned for 20) arrondissements of Paris, and are woven with a single narrative in interstitial sequences. the main theme, as the name suggests, is Paris and Love, and eventually becomes the common thread among the stories. each story ends with the following one’s opening shot, and starts with the last one’s ending. the music and narration at the background prepare the audience for the next change. A unique way of making film, indeed. Although many of the individual stories are brilliant and thought provoking, the cohesive experience from the viewer’s perspective is not equally enthralling. it, somehow, stops just short of being a whole – leaving the mind unable to connect its parts into a schema. but, for the ones who thrive for the new and innovative, this one is a Must Watch.
