Three and a half stars (R)
Juliette Binoche, Steve Buscemi
Eighteen directors (including Gus Van Sant and the Coen Brothers) and a slew of indie actors (including Natalie Portman and Nick Nolte) offer a series of vignettes that make up a valentine to the City of Lights. The film is wildly uneven — big surprise — but consistently interesting as an album of cinematic snapshots. 120 minutes.
DVD INFO: Includes a making-of featurette."
