Narrator: The place is Paris, the time is five o'clock in the morning. You may have read in travel folders that Paris is a city that never sleeps. Don't you believe it. At this time of the day there is nothing doing, unless you're working for the department of sanitation. If you want a nightcap at Maxim's, it's too late. If you want to jump off the Eiffel Tower, it's too early. It won't be open for hours.

So, if you're looking for a little action, forget the high-rent disctrict. You'de better come to our neighbourhood. This is Les Halles, the wholesale food market. We call it the stomach of Paris. Keep your Champs Élysées and your palace in Versailles. This is the place for me: brawling, vulgar, smelly, but alive.

Irma la Douce (Billy Wilder, 1963)

Também estou a pensar ir a Paris, talvez em Setembro, e descobrir os sítios onde foram filmados clássicos como Funny Face, Les Quatre Cent Coups, Amélie, Charade...
