What are your favorite films set in Paris? What about books?
Filed under books
Hi, I’ve been reading your stuff for a few months. I just wanted to let you know that you’ve helped spark my re-interest in becoming better at baking in the kitchen! Some of your cakes look incredible.
Anyway, I just rented the film “Paris je t’aime.” It’s a bunch of short films set in Paris and I really enjoyed it.
a couple of films off the top of my head:
“amelie” and “breathless”
Amelie (which is really Montmartre, not Paris…but come on…), and (obviously) Casablanca.
I like the books “A Year in the Merde” and “In the Merde for Love” which about a British man living in France. Very funny and light reading. Also, “From Paris to the Moon” is a memoir of an American living in Paris with his family. For movies I liked “La Vie en Rose” the Edith Piaf story- some of it is in Paris. LOVED “Ratatouille” :).
ooh ooh oooh. Paris.
Amelie is of course wonderful.
Also, Before Sunset (or is it Before Sunrise? I can never remember which is which. The second one that came out a year or two ago) takes place on foot in Paris. Beautiful.
Diva is good too–lovely music and strange thriller.
And Les Amants du Pont-Neuf (Lovers of the Pont Neuf).
I think I liked Paris to the Moon also. Did you ever read Down and Out in Paris and London? I kind of liked that.
God, I know there are more.
2 Days in Paris starring Julie Delpy and her real parents, written and directed and edited by Julie Delpy, with music by Julie Delpy
