Directed by: ZABOU BREITMAN
Starring: Valeria Bruni Tedeschi, Anaïs Demoustier, Bruno Todeschini, Zabou Breitman
From the imagination of Zabou Breitman (All Three of Us, AF FFF2016) – co-written with Anne Berest and Maïwenn (director of Mon Roi, AF FFF2016; and The Price of Success in this year’s Festival) – comes Paris etc.; a television series created for Canal+ that takes a cheeky foray into the private lives of Parisian women.

Lou Roy-Lecollinet, Valeria Bruni Tedeschi, Anaïs Demoustier, Naidra Ayadi and Zabou Breitman play five women going through the ups & downs of their daily humdrum, beautifully framed by Paris. Through them, we experience five ways of being, crying, screaming, laughing, grinding teeth, having fun, not having fun, drinking too much, growing up, resisting stuff, making a child, not making a child, not wanting to go home… and five ways to love.

Each episode starts with a touch of sauciness but then moves into humour mixed with genuine pathos, and endearing female personalities with sublime Parisian locations. Archival imagery from Paris in the 1950s is intercut with our heroines’ adventures, which gives the whole series a gorgeous vintage aesthetic.

The Festival will be screening the first three 30-minute episodes of season one of Paris etc. as a feature presentation.

French with English subtitles
