Paris, 13th District
A sexy romantic comedy, this film about three 20/30 somethings navigating school, sex, and relationships in Paris was a loose and fun watch. It’s rare to see a rom-com where the relationships are so fluid, from casual to romantic to friendship, and it all feels nebulous but still natural. The three leads, played by Lucie Zhang, Makita Samba, and Noémie Merlant, all have great chemistry, and they feel like real people whose stories I want to see. By the film’s end, I wanted it to keep going, wanting to see how their stories grow. Paris 13th District is the film I’d recommend most for a traditional date night, with a little edge.
