Paris, Brixton 1997

13 mins United Kingdom Director. Jeremy Wooding

Laura Fraser and Ben Miles star in this short, sweet and stylish Brit rom-com with a nod to the French nouvelle vague. Amanda is a student obsessed with all things French. Holed up with the flu in her Brixton flat, she is awoken in the dead of night by a burglar who's broken into the wrong house. Amanda falls in love with the intruder but as their love blooms, her flat starts to fill up with stolen goods.

Digitisation supported by the Mohamed S. Farsi Foundation.
