Offers a smorgasbord of distinct styles as it compiles an unprecedented movie mix tape of poetic interludes.
| Original Score: 3/4

The bee's knees, the cat's pajamas and the lobster's dinner shirt of movies currently playing.

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.

Nothing about Paris, Je T'aime feels stiff or hindered by its haphazard, sometimes truncated, but always sincere love letter to and tour of the City of Lights.

A little uneven in style, tone and quality. But the picture that emerges of Paris is romantic, cosmopolitan and hopeful.
| Original Score: 4/5

From comedy to drama, varied anthology is worth the trip.

Each short film runs an average of eight minutes, so even if you get stuck with a clunker, it's not long before the next one starts.

If you love films (and Paris) then this omnibus edition is strongly recommended.

There's something romantic about the big city, because with so many people in such a small space, something unexpected and joyful is bound to cross your path one day. And this is the precise mentality that makes [this movie] such a breath of fresh air.

This bittersweet love-letter to France's capital is as richly cosmopolitan as the city itself.

Varied in tone and perspective, but also variable in narrative quality. But Paris je t'aime offers at least as many hits as misses.

Its 18 vignettes show Paris as a big city like any other, with the attendant street crime and disparity between haves and have-nots. It's just that the architecture, clothes and people are more handsome than in most cities.
| Original Score: 3/4

Even the least tales here flit by quickly enough to leave little bad aftertaste, and the best are savored like the last small bites of exquisite soufflés.

The cream of this crop took the assignment to heart - to show not just being in love in Paris, but being in love with Paris.
| Original Score: 3/4

The best segments are as good as film gets; the losers can make you wince. On the whole, the good outweigh the bad and make the film feel like a minivacation in the City of Light.
| Original Score: 3.5/5

There is just enough good stuff to outweigh the bad.

I suppose you can take the anthology as a sampling of Parisian atmospheres, but hardly anywhere is a place you'd want to visit for long.

Paris Je T'aime is a charmer. It's like a sampler plate of sweet confections, delightful but not very substantial, and with enough variety to please just about everyone.
| Original Score: 6/10

The best is saved for last: Payne's 14th arrondissement takes its time to create a Parisian epiphany that both pokes fun at an American tourist (Margo Martindale) and finds grace in her acceptance of a fragile moment of transcendence.
| Original Score: 3/4
David Elliott
San Diego Union-Tribune
June 1, 2007
Many districts of the city open to as many directors, each finding vignettes of love or loss.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
