Paris, je t’aime

Paris This compilation of 6-minute short films, set in Paris, from 21 directors including the Coen Brothers, Alexander Payne, Wes Craven and Olivier Assayas, is predictable in its wild swings of mood and ultimately unsatisfying execution. Maggie Gyllenhaal plays an American actress trying to score drugs, Steve Buscemi plays a hapless American accosted on a subway platform and Gaspard Ulliel is the object of homosexual lust in Gus Van Sant’s helium-inflated short. I suppose you can take the anthology as a sampling of Parisian atmospheres, but this Paris is not a place you’d want to visit for long.

Rated R. 120 mins. (C-) (Two Stars)
