Okay, so it's not really breaking down too many stereotypes about life in Paris. But it is a beautiful film to lose yourself in for a couple of hours. And I have the biggest crush on Juliette Binoche - I'll definitely be writing more about her soon seeing as I've just learnt that's she's released a book of her paintings and poems, and is in Sydney at the moment with her dance performance show: is there anything this woman can't do!!!
So, back to the film - it follows the lives of 10 characters from a social worker - Binoche - to an African immigrant. It's not ground-breaking cinema but it is competently put together - shot, edited and written well. Well worth a night on the couch.
