        Paris, je t’aime is not a purely-French film, but it is an enigmatic summary of the world’s view of modern French cinema. The film is the result of 22 directors’ work: the best modern directors of French and international cinema came together to produce 18 shorts. It doesn’t take much effort to guess the topic of these shorts: love, in. The films captured the essence of French teenage life in the s and were phenomenal successes. In a unique cycle, Brigitte Fossey played Marceau’s mother in the Boum films, and Marceau went on to star as the mother of Lola, played by young actress Christa Theret, in the teenage hit comedy LOL (Laughing Out Loud).

        The movie uses the term “Indochine” or “Indochina” in the opening titles, a colonial-era phrase, now rather frowned on, and predating the modern south-east Asia.   The Fault in our Stars movie is a little light on Isaac. One of the most amusing sequences in the book is an exchange between Isaac, Hazel and a Author: Jessica Rawden.
