Movie Info

The Left Bank of Paris is a notorious bohemian hot-spot where some of the world's greatest artists and intellectuals found a haven in which to freely express themselves. Though traditional chronicles have focused on the illustrious men who lived there, this British documentary looks at some of the women who lived there including Gertrude Stein and her lover Alice B. Toklas, publishers Sylvia Beach and Adrienne Monnier, painter Romaine Brooks, and Natalie Barney. Many of their stories are told with archival film clips coupled with modern interviews.

Audience Reviews for Paris Was a Woman

An interesting look at the woman who resided on the Left Bank in Paris after the war. Valuable contribution to films of the early feminist movement and the influencers of that period.
