Our take

Perhaps the best tour of Paris you’ll ever take, Rohmer’s delightful short follows Nadja, who shares with us her thoughts and urban discoveries in voice-over. A look at a foreign student’s time abroad, as well as a flâneuse’s stroll along Parisian neighborhoods—with glimpses of city street life.
