Paris is Backdrop for 18 Short Films in One
to Screen March 6-9 at UW-Eau Claire

RELEASED: Feb. 28, 2008

poster for Paris je t'aimeEAU CLAIRE — "Paris, je t'aime" (France 2006), an anthology feature with the world's most romantic city as a backdrop, will screen March 6-9 at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.

Made up of 18 short films by 22 directors from around the world, the film will be presented at 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Thursday through Sunday in Davies Theatre.

The international cast includes Fanny Ardant, Juliet Binoche, Steve Buscemi, Gerard Depardieu, Ben Gazzara, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Nick Nolte, Natalie Portman, Gena Rowlands and Elijah Wood. Directors include Gurinder Chadha, Sylvain Chomet, Joel and Ethan Coen, Wes Craven, Alfonso Cuarón, Alexander Payne, Walter Salles, Tom Tykwer and Gus Van Sant.

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."

Subtitled in English, the 120-minute film is rated R.

Admission is $2 for International Film Society members and UW-Eau Claire faculty and staff and $1 for UW-Eau Claire students. Tickets are available at the Service Center (715-836-3727) in Davies Center's east lobby and will be sold at the door.

The film is presented by the International Film Society.
