Discovering the World – Paris Past, Paris Present, Paris on the Move – Episode 167

The film constantly draws a parallel between modern and period images, going back as far as the early 20th century to show the evolution of Paris and the means of transport with which to discover the city. The early-day images are juxtaposed, not to say superimposed, with modern scenes so that the viewer has the impression of permanently being conveyed through time aboard a city on the move.

From the first sightseeing launches on the Seine to the new tram lines, not forgetting some strange encounters at disused metro stations or the foundations of the Gare de l’Est, this document is tinged with nostalgia and holds a number of surprises in store for all lovers of Paris.
