Celebrated directors from around the world came together to portray Paris in a way never before imagined. Contributors as cosmopolitan as the city itself (including the Coen Brothers, Gus Van Sant, Gurinder Chadha, Wes Craven, Walter Sales, Alexander Payne and Oliver Assayas) each tell a story of an unusual encounter in one of the city's neighbourhoods.
The vignettes go beyond a 'postcard' view
of Paris to portray aspects of the city rarely seen on the big screen. The outstanding
host of actors includes Natalie Portman, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Fanny Ardant, Elijah
Wood, Nick Nolte, Bob Hoskins, Juliette Binoche, Emily Mortimer, Catalina Sandino
Moreno, Rufus Sewell, Barbet Schroeder, Ludivine Sagnier, Gena Rowlands, Miranda
Richardson and Steve Buscemi.
