A series of short films made for television
Inspired by true stories of love or loss in the City of Light
What happens when people from two different cultures try to make a romantic connection? And what if one of them is French?
This charming and original series attempts to answer this question in ten enlightening episodes, each inspired by true story of Parisian love or loss.
Each 22-minute episode is filmed in its own cinematic style, from romantic to thriller to film noir, and features a true dating story between Jane (an expatriate Everywoman) and Pierre (a French Everyman), or John (an expatriate Everyman) and Marie (a French Everywoman), or some combination thereof. At the ending, each episode reveals what happened to the couple in real life.
Each episode features new actors, as well as music from local musicians, artwork from local artists, photographs from local photographers, and more.
Anyone who has dreamed of traveling to Paris—or falling in love—will enjoy this romantic dramedy series.
