Synopsis
SYNOPSIS


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. Gare du Nord, by Jean Rouch, focuses on a squabbling young couple from the neighborhood of a busy railway station. St. Germain-des-Prés, directed by Jean Douchet, is a witty treatment of a familiar theme: the American in Paris, in love with the myth of the Left Bank (the glamorous St. Germain with its bohemian life and existentialist cafés). In Eric Rohmer's Place de L'Etoile a timid salesclerk thinks he has committed murder. Jean-Luc Godard's Montparnasse et Levallois 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.
