Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - - - - - - - - - - «The colourful story of Paris is told to us through the lives of numerous historical figures who each left his or her mark on the great city. From the brutality of the Middle Ages, to the upheaval of the French Revolution, and then the decadence of the Belle époque, the history of Paris is brought vividly to life. Louis XI, Catherine Medici, Francois I, Voltaire, Flabert and Victor Hugo are just a few of the characters taking the stage in this unique saga which tells the life of one of the world’s greatest cities. Often cited as one of Sacha Guitry’s best films, with a cast list most directors can only dream of, Si Paris nous était conté aims to tell the story of Paris through a series of sketches which range from burlesque comedy to poignant drama. The style of the film is similar to Guitry’s previous historical romp, Si Versailles m’était conté (1954), which told the story of the Château of Versailles. Lighter and better structured than Guitry’s other well-known historical film, Napoléon (1955), Si Paris nous était conté is as entertaining as it is informative. Guitry’s well-crafted script and fine performances from such acting legends as Gérard Philipe and Michèle Morgan make this a memorable piece of cinema».
