Existing somewhere between ecology and ethnography, Claire Simon’s gorgeous documentary explores the many different people who pass through or take up residence in Paris’s Le Bois de Vincennes, a massive public park that puts those in most American cities to shame. We meet migrants seeking a quick respite from urban noise and bustle, hermits living off the land, artists seeking inspiration, and prostitutes doing business. This exquisitely shot study of an urban Eden manages to convey the highly specific culture(s) within Les Bois de Vincennes as well as the universal need for nature.
