Klapisch makes fiction films that are better than most documentaries at tracking the ravages and felicities of urban renewal, the connections between people and their neighborhoods, the ties that both bind and torment families. With PARIS he does all of that and then some. “Pulses with a contemporary version of the energy that animated Balzac's novels, or Colette's accounts of the life she observed from the window of her apartment in the Palais Royal”- Morgenstern, WALL STREET JOURNAL. “****! An all-star cast made up of some of the brightest talents in France. Juliette Binoche continues to be a marvel” - LaSalle, SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE. “Klapisch captures both the picture-postcard ideal of the city and the candid truth behind it, managing to enhance both images…a funny, sad, romantic and deeply felt love letter to a great city. If you can't book a trip now, it's the next best thing.” - Hornaday, WASHINGTON POST. From IFC Films.

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: Alternately a sharp ensemble dramedy and a love letter to the titular city, Paris is uneven but often striking.
