Description: This is an untraditional film documentary that concerns Paris. Instead of covering the usual sights and sounds of the city, writer/director Chris Marks takes his film crew to the street and interviews people on the spot and in their homes. Comments range from the French-Algerian conflict and the stock market to everyday problems of housing, homelessness, working conditions and moral and religious observations. Although the classic art and culture that made Paris famous worldwide is discussed, the primary focus is on how Parisians look at themselves and their everyday lives. Yves Montand narrates the film, sounding too much like American cartoon character Pepe LePew.~ Dan Pavlides, All Movie Guide
