I saw this film once on the telly, years ago, and I'd love to track it down.

It's set in Paris, in French with subtitles. It's a series of short romantic stories, in one film. Maybe five different stories.

I think it was made in the late '80s, but this could be wrong.

I don't know the director or the actors' names.

I'd be amazed if anyone can enlighten me! grin

Thank you!

Amelie?

Thanks, but no.

The stories are completely separate. Different characters etc. It pre-dates Amelie too.

Was it night on earth?

Delicatessen?

Could it be Eric Rohmer's 4 Seasons series - though they were separate films?

Rainydaze Fri 14-Jan-11 23:04:01

Nope, not Night on Earth or Delicatessed. Thanks though.

It wasn't a particularly sophisticated film, but had a gorgeous atmosphere about it.

Rainydaze Fri 14-Jan-11 23:04:33

Nope, it was one film rather than a series.

No, as you say Je t'aime's too recent.

No, it isn't the cat film, although that looks intgriguing!

I think there was one story with a girl who was a student. She walked through a market.

One story involved an architect or an artist.

One involved a couple walking near the Seine.

There were little very brief musical inteludes in between stories with a cafe type band playing - very French!

You could try here. If you click on a year and then click on the film it takes you to a synopsis.

Rainydaze Fri 14-Jan-11 23:18:06

Thanks for that link. I'll have a good look through!

Rainydaze Fri 14-Jan-11 23:22:55

Found it! Way off in the year (1995). It's Les rendez-vous de Paris, directed by Eric Rohmer.

Phew! I can go to bed now!

Thanks all.

Oh too late- have just been trying to search for you and thought it sounded like an Eric Rohmer film. I love solving problems like this!!

You might like a Full moon in Paris another one of his films. It is one of my favourites. I am making my way through his films on Lovefilm have just added the one you mention to my rental list. Just love Paris!

CaptainNancy Fri 14-Jan-11 23:34:45

It's called Rendezvous en Paris.

CaptainNancy Fri 14-Jan-11 23:35:00
