Paris is a monstrously inhuman cityscape, in which cars, buses, crowds, and unceasing noise combine to smother any decent and delicate human activity. People and flowers attempt to survive in a city that seems ready to explode from an over-heated mixture of traffic and noise.

Our take

Given Walerian Borowczyk’s subversive credentials, it’s little surprise his Parisian rarity finds a cacophony of traffic and noise wild enough to set the local tourist board’s teeth on edge. A wickedly effective exercise in montage, Letter from Paris is an elegy for humanity’s war with the din.
