Love & Sex in Paris in US Trailer for Audiard's 'Paris, 13th District'
"Why are you so unsure of yourself?" IFC Films has revealed a new official US trailer for the French film known as Paris, 13th District in English, originally titled Les Olympiades, which is the French name for the "13 District" neighborhood this takes place in. This is the latest film from award-winning French filmmaker Jacques Audiard (A Prophet, Rust and Bone, Dheepan, The Sisters Brothers) and it premiered at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival last year. The film is a black and white story of young love in modern Paris - following three different stories of people living in the 13th district of Paris. Technically this is an adaptation of the graphic novel" Killing and Dying" by Adrian Tomine, a modern tale of love and friendship, co-written with Léa Mysius and Céline Sciamma. The film stars Lucie Zhang, Makita Samba, Noémie Merlant, Jehnny Beth, Camille Léon-Fucien, Oceane Cairaty, and Anaïde Rozam. I wasn't a huge fan of this film, though the score rules. It's a fresh, authentic portrayal of young love in Paris and worth a look. Enjoy.
