Paris je t’aime

Alfonso Cuarón wrote and directed Parc Monceau (XVIIe arrondissement), starring Nick Nolte and Ludivine Sagnier. Sara Martins also appears.

Michael Seresin filmed, and Alex Rodríguez edited. Naiki Rossell worked on the sound.

NB: Parc Monceau is actually located in the VIIIe arrondissement.  The title of this short refers to a neighbourhood in the XVIIe called la Plaine Monceau, northwest of Parc Monceau.  Claire and Vincent walk down the Boulevard de Courcelles to Villiers métro.  (grâce à wikipédia)

 

CUARON, speaking to David Stratton (At the Movies):

I wrote this story driving in a cab between Pisa and Cannes last year. I was on my way here last year, and I knew that I have – I committed to this thing, and then in the cab riding here I wrote the whole thing. I wrote first in English and that helped me to adapt the dialogues into French.

NOLTE, asked, “What was it like when you were asked to take part in this film?”

Well, I had no idea what it was, so – I knew it was Alfonso Cuaron, so that – you know, I said, “I don’t care what it’s about. It’s only four and a half minutes. It couldn’t be too bad”, you know, “They can only boo so long. So, to be fair, I can handle that.”
