  • Critic Reviews
    4 stars out of 5 -- "As Klapisch wanders through vignettes of dreams and disappointments, he offers a captivating and never prescriptive paean to humanity's will to survive."

    3 stars out of 5 -- "A Gallic SHORT CUTS, you could say -- although, being French, PARIS comes across quieter and more reflective than Altman's masterwork."
    Total Film

    3.5 stars out of 5 -- "This vibrant portrait of the film's titular city will be irresistible to Francophiles....Binoche brings her natural charm to her compassionate character."
    Box Office

    3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[E]very character has life and depth....As the narrative circles through their stories, we're genuinely curious about what will happen next."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "As befits a film about a dancer staring down death, PARIS roots its best moments in movement rather than dialogue."
    A.V. Club

    "Both a Parisian answer to Woody Allen's MANHATTAN and a multicharacter mosaic in the mode of Robert Altman's SHORT CUTS, the movie sprawls invitingly across the screen like a glowing Impressionist painting."
    New York Times

    "[W]hat lifts PARIS from the subgenre pack is a fine ensemble, in particular the emotional chemistry between two of the screen's most magnetic actors, Juliette Binoche and Romain Duris."
    Los Angeles Times

    PARIS pulses with a contemporary version of the energy that animated Balzacs novels, or Colettes accounts of the life she observed from the window of her apartment in the Palais Royal.
    Wall Street Journal

    "Cedric Klapisch's intoxicating portrait of a city that despite (or, more likely, because of) being in a state of constant flux, retains timeless energy and allure."
    Washington Post

    Included in Chicago Sun-Times's "The Best Foreign Films Of 2009" -- "Cedric Klapisch, the writer-director, creates symphonic tribute to the city he loves..."
