(Newser) – A short film by a well-known director of a couple making out in parks, under bridges and on the streets of Paris is the city's latest attempt to seduce tourists. The 3-minute movie, Kisses From Paris, debuts on YouTube today. The quickie film features a smooching woman lamenting to her lover about leaving Paris while Rufus Wainwright croons a melancholy tune. French director Yvan Attal, born in Tel Aviv, said he shot the film because he loves Paris. Besides, he adds, "it only took me a day."
