An anthology feature with the world’s most romantic city as a backdrop, Paris, je t'aime is made up of 18 short films by 21 directors from around the world. The international cast includes Fanny Ardant, Juliet Binoche, Steve Buscemi, Gerard Depardieu, Ben Gazzara, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Emily Mortimer, Nick Nolte, Natalie Portman, Miranda Richardson, Gena Rowlands, Rufus Sewell and Elijah Wood.
Los Angeles Times film critic Carina Chocano described the film as "less a travelogue than a kaleidoscopic view of the many moods the city inspires — and they are sundry ... Some installments are less inspiring, and one or two could qualify as missteps. But Paris, je t’aime has something going for it that not every movie can claim: It always has Paris."
Admission is free at the door with a Blugold Card or an International Film Society membership. Community members may buy an individual IFS membership for $4; a family membership costs $10. The annual memberships are available at the Service Center, 715-836-3727, in Davies Center’s east lobby.
