This is a love letter to living in Paris — even on a bitterly cold winter’s day. Interspersed with shots of the city, we hear from Parisians, including a group of boys on the joys of pelting passers-by with snowballs, and a 73-year-old who has lived his whole life in Paris and would not have it any other way. The film is also a beautifully shot meditation on film and memory, built around Chris Marker’s observation that “Nothing is more beautiful than Paris, if not the memory of Paris.”
