Editorial Reviews

When six acclaimed directors each contribute a short film about a different Paris neighborhood, the result is SIX IN PARIS: a wry, loving portrait of the city and its inhabitants by the masters of the French New Wave.

A battle-fatigued hooker picks up a virginal dishwasher in Rue St. Denis. In Eric Rohmer's Place de L'Etoile a timid salesclerk thinks he has committed murder. Jean-Luc Goddard shows us a woman who is afraid she has mixed up letters to her two boyfriends. And a young boy finds a way to ignore his obnoxious parents in Claude Chabrol's La Muette.

Together, these six tales paint a tableau of a noisy, vibrant, colorful Paris a city where everything is possible.

Special Features:
- Interviews with Barbet Schroeder, Albert Maysles, Jackie Raynal, and Richard Brody
- Scene Selections
- Optional English subtitles

"Six short stories acted, produced, directed and colored in high style... A full entertainment." THE NEW YORK POST

4.0 out of 5 stars A sparkling , unusual snapshot of cool, sixties Paris. February 9, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
What a wonderful gem of a film. It perfectly captured the mood and characters of Sixties Paris. A mood much different than ours in America at that time. For lovers of Cool European culture each individual film has something to offer. At times humorous and at times poignant, I felt as if I had discovered something hidden for a long time. The directors involved in these films are all now quite famous for their contributions to modern cinema, but in Six in Paris you get the feeling you've been invited to their coming out party. Many of the techniques used in the directing of these films are now embraced by many, but no one today uses them like they are used here. Most importantly we get a strangely beautiful portrait of an edgy, sometimes gray, hip Paris which may be long gone. Stylish clothes, bustling cafe's, and plenty of Citroens and scooters buzzing around the streets - I would recommend this film to anyone looking to slip back into another time for an evening.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love At First Sight! February 17, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
I fell in love instantly when I first saw the first story "Saint Germain de pres". The second one "Gare Du Nord" had an equally amazing impact. Each director had an amazing eyes for details in capturing moods, lighting and expressions. The stories of life were presented in a way you'll never have imagined before. Left me with dreamy dejau vu feeling that I can't quite shake myself off days later. I watched the VHS three times before returning it to the store, and got myself a brand new one that I'm sure I'll watch it another 1000000000 (infinite) more times. If I have more stars, I'll definitely give it a million stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars Six in Paris May 7, 2007
By R. Wood
Format:VHS Tape
I've been looking for this film for many years and am glad to have this video. The picture quality, however, is somewhat disappointing, and the image is `full frame'. I don't know exactly what the original format was but it was clearly filmed in some form of wide screen. The film is marvellous - especially the segments by Rouch and Chabrol. Better than nothing but I hope for a DVD soon!

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfectly Paris May 19, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This film has got to be one of the most definitive expressions of what "Paris" means. Six shorts, in six neighborhoods of Paris. If you love Paris you will love this film. I especially liked the one about the arguing couple. The wife has an encounter with a gentleman on the street. I won't give it away, but it's fantastic. This grouping of Directors cannot be beat.
