Paris Is Us (French: Paris est à nous) is a 2019 French drama feature film directed by Elisabeth Vogler.

Plot[edit]

The movie reviews the thoughts of Anna and her relationship with Greg in Paris. After some years of dating Greg has plans to go to Barcelona to work as an air traffic controller. He is unhappy with Anna's lack of ambition while she is satisfied with her job as a waitress in Paris. Greg wants Anna to come with him to Barcelona but she initially refuses. One day a plane en route to Barcelona crashes and Anna wonders what if she would've been on that plane on her way to visit Greg? Maybe she was. Did terrorism take down the plane and change lives and relationships of so many? What is real and what if life's being controlled by an outside force? Are feelings like love real or only an image on a screen? Is Anna alone or did she have a loving caring relationship with Greg? Let it all be like it was before if it really was lived.
