BUY Paris, Je T’Aime





William and Frances (Rufus Sewell and Emily Mortimer) are a British couple, in Paris on their honeymoon (although they've yet to marry). As they wander around the Pere Lachaise graveyard, she half-jokes that William is always so serious and doesnt have any sense of humour or romance. He asks her why shes agreed to marry him, then. They come upon Oscar Wildes grave. Frances is enthralled, but Williams unimpressed, calling the monument ugly. She gets upset and storms away.

William gives chase, but trips and smacks him head against the gravestone. Suddenly, Oscar Wilde (Alexander Payne) appears behind him. Oscar gives William some poetic advice about the meaning of love and loss. William, inspired, chases after France, apologizes and wins her back. He offers to take her back to his apartment and make love to her. She agrees and they leave the cemetery arm-in-arm.
