Paris, 13th District (18)

Still from Paris 13th District

Jacques Audiard’s return to Paris finds the filmmaker collaborating with Céline Sciamma on an adaptation of Adrian Tomine’s award-winning 2015 collection of graphic short stories Killing and Dying.

Set in the French capital’s 13th arrondissement, on the left bank of the Seine, Audiard’s film charts the interwoven relationships between four twenty-somethings, played by Lucie ZhangMakita Samba, Savages lead singer Jehnny Beth and Noémie Merlant. Capturing a very different Paris to the one that appeared in his previous films, which were dominated by the city’s underworld, Paris, 13th District is a modern story of love and life, reflecting the shifting attitudes towards identity and fidelity.
