It's a tough question, which is why I was evading it. The answer also differs whether you consider the best movie that happens to take place in Paris or the best use of the city...

I liked Les Amants du Pont-Neuf.

Le Bourne Something. But I forget which one.


I do have Angel-A on DVD at the chateau, but have yet to watch it.

I'm not too versed in foreign films, but Amelie was an amazing movie.

All the Antoine Doinel series by Truffaut + Le Dernier Metro

A Little Romance was great too.
