All Critics (114) | Top Critics (36)

You expect quality to vary from segment to segment, but the misses outweigh the hits by a depressingly high margin.

Top Critic

For directors and actors who usually work on projects that take years to develop and months to film, this must have been a really fun lark. For the viewer, it's a full cinematic feast.

Ebert & Roeper
Top Critic

The bulk of the work, filtered through the idiosyncratic lens of the global art-house, relays a peculiar impression of the city that is at once familiar and displaced.

The most resonant moments in Paris, Je T'Aime happen to be the bleakest, and they're about immigrants and other outsiders.

Audience Reviews for Paris Je T'aime

I thought that Paris Je t'aime was an overrated film that really didn't deserve the praise it has received. I appreciate the artistic merit that the filmmakers tried to accomplish with this film; however the end result is simply a film that lacks any true engaging elements to really make it stand out. The film is mediocre and doesn't satisfy the way it should. I thought the idea behind the film was good, but something simply didn't click. The films various directors and stellar cast can't even save this one from being a dud. This film was a good try at doing something different, but it just wasn't to my liking. I felt that they could have done a lot more with this film, and it leaves a lot to be desired. The idea behind this anthology is interesting, but it really does lack something to really make it stand out. The film has an established cast of very good actors, but they seem unimpressive on-screen. You'd think that a film involving several high profile actors would bring something to the screen that would make the film stand out. Unfortunately, the film falls flat and is an uninteresting effort by some great directors. I for one, don't get the hype surrounding this film, and I thought it was mediocre this film could have been great; unfortunately it wasn't that great with too many imperfections. If each director would have put a bit more effort into the film, then maybe this film would have stood out.

It's bumpy at times, with some great shorts and some not so great ones. But it's strength lies in the film as a whole, and all-in-all it was well done.
