God Chose Paris (1969)
1h 30min · Drama · 5 September 1969
This is NOT a documentary. It's much more. A very interesting mixture of filmed scenes with J-P Belmondo and archival footage regarding cultural aspects of all kind around Paris, starting at the end of the 19th century and ending in the mid-1960's. Jean-Paul Belmondo leads us through the movie starting as a young photographer around 1900, a reporter in both world-wars and doing fictional interviews with lots of celebrities. The film ends showing Belmondo as an old man around 90 years saying goodbye to his beloved Paris. A quiet but superb role for J-P B who can be seen in dozens of outfits and in different ages.
