As for the three main characters of Paris, 13th arrondissement, they are “involved in a love triangle”, he notes. “It’s based on different short stories that are intertwined, and there’s this kind of stopped development: being young in the big city and having a lousy job, but having big dreams and hoping to get caught up in this funny thing called love.”
