Since the ﬁrst philosophers and thinkers, love has been the target of curiosity and has became a topic widely explor ed in dif fer ent ar eas, and in movies, love is always one of the most r ecurr ent themes. Mor e r ecently the same eyes seem to have tur ned their focus to the cities. They have been the center of debates in various ar eas of knowledge, and occupy an incr easingly impor tant r ole in ﬁlm narratives, not only appearing as a backdr op but being par t of the narrative as pr otagonists. Love and cities star in the r ecent pr oductions of Cities of Love , a franchise of ﬁlms by Fr ench ﬁlmmaker Emmanuel Benbihy , whose aim is to por tray love in the big cities. Paris, je t'aime (2006) and New Y ork, I love you (2009), both for med by a collection of small stories about love in each of the r espective cities, pr ovide images of the city , love, cultural diversity , the self and others. Fr om the observation of the ﬁlm and with the aid of studies in the ﬁelds of communication, cinema and sociology , concepts such as multiculturalism and inter culturalism, and ﬁlm analysis as methodology , this paper aims to investigate the r epr esentation of for eigners in the ﬁlms, focusing on ethnic and racial identities.
