Romain Duris (Arsene Lupin, The Beat That My Heart Skipped) plays Pierre, a professional dance who’s suddenly diagnosed with a serious heart disease that could cost him his life. While waiting to receive the news as the wheatear or not his is able to receive a heart transplant, Pierre can do nothing but pass the time sitting on the balcony of his apartment and watch the world go by without him. But the more he observes, the more he realises the subtle and sublime beauty hidden beneath the depths of everyday occurrences, as the real Paris slowly begins to reveal itself and the complex tapestry of its inhabitants.

Fantastique - Paris review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

As French as frog's legs. Deep and meaningful without being pretentious. Full of love and humour without being overly sentimental or twee. If you like films that make you think (a bit) and smile...then you need to watch this. C'est magnifique!

Charming and Uplifting - Paris review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

A lovely small-scale French movie about the chanciness of life - good and bad. Quintessentially French too.

Fails to engage - Paris review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert

A man with heart disease watches people in the street from the balcony of his apartment and we follow their lives. Unfortunately their lives turn out to be not very interesting and the various unconnected plots, if they can be called that, go nowhere. It’s a quintessentially French film, but there’s not a lot going on here behind the city centre cafes and boulangeries. You wait for it to get going but it never does and what remains on screen is less than riveting. The unoriginal theme is ‘seize the day’, so why not do that by watching a wonderful Parisian film that celebrates life and love in a way this film never manages: ‘Paris, 13th Arrondissement’.
