Synopsis by Matthew Tobey
Renowned filmmaking brothers Joel and Ethan Coen re-team with frequent collaborator Steve Buscemi for this comedic entry in the anthology film Paris, Je T'Aime. The episode, which unfolds in the Paris Metro, observes the calamities that befall a hapless American loser (Buscemi). This tourist makes the pivotal mistake of ignoring his cultural guidebook by looking directly into the eyes of a jealous French boyfriend - and lives to regret it. Tuileries also stars Julie Bataille and Axel Kiener. Other contributors to the omnibus film include Alexander Payne, Wes Craven, and Gus Van Sant.
