Not much adds up in French director Cédric Klapisch’s film “Paris” although the incoherent trip through the city is quite appealing to the eye. Academy Award winning actress Juliette Binoche (“The English Patient”) is lovely in her portrayal of a sister who moves in with her sick brother to take care of him. But beyond a couple of stories intertwined between each other, Klapisch get messy when he doesn’t let up with secondary characters and plot points that feel like they’re just blowing in the Paris wind.
