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

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.

Six delightful short stories and candidate for the Criterion Collection, without a doubt.
A big advantage for Six In Paris (SIP) being Criterion'd would be a sprucing up of the english sub-titles, which are white and when presented over daylight scenes, can be difficult to read.
Would also hope Criterion includes the special features that are included with this New Yorker Films disc, they being 4 interviews conducted in 2008, one with Barbet Schroeder, editor Jackie Raynal, Albert Maysles and Film critic Richard Brody. Brody sheds tremendous light on the entire history of the French new wave film movement but also adds insight into each of the 6 stories here.
Barbet Schroeder is interviewed, also providing enlightening description on the whole production of SIP which as a 22 year old, he produced!

Each story is separated by approximately 20 seconds of black screen------

story #1--After a gorgeous opening featuring the bustling streets of Paris (this is where the narration in white subtitles can be difficult to read) we settle in on an apartment scene with a girl and guy that becomes a heated exchange, a separation and a concluding twist. (don't want to give too much away)

story # deux--directed by Jean Rouch, this came to be my favorite of the six stories. Firstly, we have a story presented in, I'd like to say one long take, but I detect an edit halfway through, moving from a darkened elevator shaft to the concluding out-doors scene. But even so, two long unedited scenes, and, if true, one long unedited scene is amazing to follow. So much for the actors to memorize and execute without error.
Secondly, the small details...the breakfast table with the couple sipping their coffee from small bowls, baggette and butter vs. toast, ..

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.

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!
