Week 4: We'll Always Have Paris: Part II

The “real” Paris is best captured by directors who know the terrain well, including Jean Renoir ("Boudu Saved From Drowning"), François Truffaut ("The 400 Blows"), Jean-Luc Godard ("Breathless"), Bernardo Bertolucci ("The Conformist"), and contemporary filmmakers such as Leos Carax ("Holy Motors").
