Cinema has indulged in a lengthy love affair with Paris, and who can blame it? Some places simply look gorgeous on film and Paris is certainly one of them. However, theres more to France's capital than appearances alone; beneath its good looks is a city filled with heart and soul. Whether telling tales of foreigners finding themselves (and often love) in the city, or sharing the stories of the capitals inhabitants, any filmmaker setting their movie in the City of Light cant help but cast it as one of its leading ladies. She is too big, too encompassing to simply fade into the background and act as a mere set against which a story is told. These six movies show the citys chameleonic nature - at once a beautiful tourist trap, a place of historical importance and a bustling modern metropolis, all just waiting to roll over and show its dark underbelly - through the eyes of native and foreigner filmmakers alike. In light of the recent tragic attacks on the city, lets all remember how beautiful, how inspiring, how strong Paris truly is.
