René Clairs (1898–1981) surreal science-fiction comedy Paris qui dort is a humorous and witty story, in which he dug deep down into the box of filmtricks and created a fantastic masterpiece of avant-garde cinema. A mad professor invents a machine, which brings lively Paris to an absolute standstill. Only the warden of the Eiffel Tower and a small group of travellers could escape.

Yan Maresz composed a genious musical counterpoint to the historical film. His music accompanies the individual scenes alternating in ways complementary and divergent. Both movie and music focus especially on the atmosphere of individual scenes, the psychology of the characters, the relativity of time and a sense of time as the movie’s central issue.
