Six in Paris (Paris vu par...) Photos

Movie Info

A sextet of French filmmakers collaborated on Six in Paris (originally Paris vu Par...) Jean Douchet directed the film's first episode, "Saint Germain-des-Pres," the story of the up-and-down relationship between a male model (Jean-Francois Chappey) and an American coed (Barbara Wilkin). Jean Rouch's "Gare du Nord" is a haunting twist-of-fate tale involving a suicidal handsome stranger (Gilles Queant). Written and directed by Jean-Daniel Pollet, "Rue Saint-Denis" unites an experienced prostitute (Micheline Dax) with a garrulous customer (Claude Melki). "Place de l'Etoile," a Chekhovian guilt trip involving salesman Jean-Michael Rouziere and shabby, supposedly dead street person Marcel Gallon, was Eric Rohmer's contribution. Jean-Luc Godard's "Montparnasse-Levallois," photography by American documentary filmmaker Albert Maysles, finds Joanne Shimkus in an imaginary menage a trois. Six in Paris is topped off by Claude Chabrol's "La Muette," wherein a family man (played by Chabrol himself) comes to grief when he purchases a pair of earplugs. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    this is a compilation of 6 short stories mabe about situations in paris in the mid 60s. sorry to say that out of the six, only one is memorable--- the second one I thought was chilling, especialy the ending. The others are all throw away as far as i am concerned.. so one decent one out of six makes 16.66 % favorable rating.

    Paris seen by great French directors. Interesting point of views. All them "darker" than the stories of "Paris je t´aime" and "Paris" (Cédric Klapisch) that, even showing bad sides of the city, end up bringing up a final (relative) good image of Paris. It´s interesting to notice how the main themes changed from the 60´s to nowadays. <br> <br>
