This is an anthology of shorts by different directors, each taking one of the arrondissements as its subject. These kind of things are always a mish mash, but there was just enough delicately good stuff here to sustain it as a whole… ok, except for maybe the vampire bit, which made me want to turn the screener off right in the middle. 14e arrondissement directed by Alexander Payne was really strong, and I always love anything by Olivier Assayas, so Quartier des Enfants Rouges did not dissapoint me. But Tom Tykwer’s Faubourg Saint-Denis was a knock-out. I want to watch that about 10 more times.
