In this video by Alex Soloviev, we get a glimpse of the French capital that goes beyond its grand tourist attractions. He condenses his clips of the people and streets of the city into a 200-second clip accompanied by dramatic music from David Molina.

"Paris is a vibrant city and it has never been quiet for me. It's full of fragile sounds, unique textures of streets echoing with the patter of footsteps, wheels, horns, voices."
