L'Amour (or less...)
is a series of short films
Inspired by true stories of love or loss in the
City of Light
Some of these stories are romantic and charming, some are distinctly not, and some are simply bizarre, but all are true.
What happens when two people who come from two different cultures try to form a romantic connection?
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, while Paris plays her part, leaving her fingerprints on all that happens.
Anyone who has dreamed of traveling to Paris---or falling in love---will enjoy this romantic dramedy series.
