A witty travelogue, in eye-popping colour, capturing the beaches, buildings, and tourists of the French Riviera. A playful examination of caryatids — stone columns and statues of female figures, often disrobed — adorning the buildings of Paris. A poetic fantasy about a vacant apartment on the market and the memories of its past (or future) residents. A fond tribute to the Cinémathèque Française and its staircase, in 150 seconds. A magical romance set around sculptor Auguste Bartholdi’s bronze Lion of Belfort in Paris’s 14th arrondissement.
