Product Description

Product Description

Julie Delpy writes, directs and stars in this romantic comedy, a sequel to her 2007 film '2 Days in Paris'. A few years have passed since the events of the last film and Marion (Delpy) has split with Jack. However, they share custody of their toddler son and Marion is now living in New York City with Mingus (Chris Rock), a radio show host with a young daughter of his own. The couple's domestic bliss is disrupted by the arrival of Marion's eccentric father, Jeannot (Albert Delpy), and tough cookie sister Rose (Alexia Landeau), along with an unexpected addition to the party, Rose's sometime-boyfriend (and Marion's ex), Manu (Alexandre Nahon), who have all come to town for Marion's debut photography exhibition opening, where she is planning to sell her soul to the highest bidder as a conceptual art piece.

From Amazon.co.uk

Julie Delpy directed and starred in 2 Days in Paris, a 2007 film about romance, culture shock, and family. So is 2 Days in New York, also directed by and starring Delpy, a direct sequel? Well--sort of. Her character has the same name, Marion, but she's moved on from her previous relationship and settled in NYC with a public-radio host named Mingus (Chris Rock). A sense of déjà vu is understandable, because here comes family again, in the form of her fragrant, boisterous father (Albert Delpy, Julie's real-life dad) and a sister towing her latest loser boyfriend (they're played by co-screenwriters Alexia Landeau and Alex Nahon). All of this trouble is happening while Marion is launching a gallery show, where the centrepiece of her collection is her soul, put up for the highest bidder. The makings of a likable enough comedy are here, but the film feels so slack, and the jokes so familiar, that 2 Days in New York never manages to ignite. Delpy clearly loves Woody Allen movies, and that vibe creeps in from time to time, but it only underscores how far this movie falls from Woody's best. Kudos, however, to Chris Rock, who slips into the skin of a downtown intellectual and pulls off nice straight-man duty--even when he's conversing with a life-size cardboard cutout of Barack Obama. --Robert Horton

If you are into quirky comedies.. this is for you. Bear in mind it is a romantic comedy .. so if you hate those, you probably wont enjoy this.

But i dont take comedy that seriously and I genuinely enjoyed this movie. There are some really hilarious scenes. The dry nature of the character played by Chris Rock versus his over dramatic girlfriend and her over friendly father creates a very comical dynamic.

If you are in for a chuckle.. you wont regret this purchase

'2 Days in Paris' is a hilarious and at times poignant film. It is one of my favourite films. That said it did drag in a few places which suggests that it was slightly too long (an issue corrected in this film). It always recovered, which is what made it so memorable.

I was very concerned when Delpy announced a sequel. I then saw that Chris Rock was in it and became deeply concerned.
However, then I read an interview with Julie Delpy in which she described the loss of her mother (who played her character Marion's mother in 'Paris') and being a mother herself as being the jumping off point for this film.
It was at this point that I realised that the 'soul' of the film was intact and there was promise after all.

Essentially the story continues a few years after 'Paris' in which time Marion and Jack have had a son and since split up. Marion's mother has died and, in the midst of her grief, she has now met and moved in with Mingus (Chris Rock). Chaos ensues when Marion's widower father (played by Delpy's real-life father), sister and her ex-boyfriend show up in New York for Marion's art exhibition.

It all sounds very farcical, but believe me when I say that comedy isn't ever about the plot but about the execution. Delpy has crafted a very intelligent comedy that avoids clichés and despite a few cringe-worthy moments maintains it's European roots without pandering to Western audiences. What a breath of fresh air!

Also refreshing is to see what is essentially an American film in which people from other countries are allowed to speak their language. Times really are changing! And that is what the film is about. Relationships end, people die. Life isn't perfect and can be equally sad and hilarious, but can be over so quickly.

“It’s my mother. No tongue” (Mingus / Chris Rock)

2 Days in New York is a brilliant and funny sequel to the cool 2 Days in Paris. The film was directed by Julie Delpy and written by Julie Delpy and Alexia Landeau (Rose in the film).

Julie Delpy wrote Mingus’ role especially for Chris Rock.

The film continues describing the lack of communication between different cultures and we find hillarious scenes that are very real. As 2 Days in Paris, 2 Days in New York has a taste of Woody Allen and of European films.

2 Days in New York didn’t get any important award.

The best: the lack of communication between different cultures, Chris Rock, Albert Delpy, the sauna scene, the yoga class and Rose’s tit, the music, and the puppets.

The worst: nothing.

I remember going to see 2 Days in Paris at the cinema. It was one of those films that you enter without any preconceptions and exit thinking you've unearthed an undiscovered gem. It was free flowing, knowingly ridiculous without ever teetering over into complete farce, and charming, and funny, and, well, a great date movie for people that are secure enough in their relationships not to worry that they're going to be undermined by 90 minutes of watching a fictional twosome going into meltdown. It was great.
This? Well, I just don't know where to start. In fact I can't start. It was just so terrible on every level - everything. I cannot believe that Julie Delpy, an actress and artist that I have a lot of respect for, created it. The central relationship between the two leads is totally unbelievable, Delpy's family are the most ridiculous French caricatures that have ever been brought to screen (was she disowned for this at home?), the script and acting are awful (like a play written and performed by over eager sixth formers, with no experience of either real relationships or real life itself) and the dramatic 'conceits' are truly laughable (but in a bad way).
If you liked or loved the first film, like me, then please avoid this - it will be sullied forever by association. If you didn't like the first film then you will, also like me (unfortunately), hate this excruciating waste of 90 minutes of your life.
I'm sorry to everyone involved, associated or in love with this film. But not as sorry as I am that I wasted my money, time and energy on it.
ps. My wife hated it too. It actually made her very, very angry. So, NOT a great date movie either.

Near the end of this movie, Vincent Gallo turns up as himself, proclaims himself a polymath, and starts questioning the existence of the human soul. The fact that I couldn't tell if this scene was a hideous joke or some kind of emotional conclusion testifies to the maddening failure of 2 Days In New York to engage anyone except, presumably, Julie Delpy.

Delpy writes and directs, and stars as Marion, a neurotic photographer whose monstrous family comes over from Paris to cause havoc. Her boyfriend, Mingus (Chris Rock), suffers their broad humour and rudeness with patience and dignity. Will Marion and Mingus survive this ordeal? More importantly, will we the audience?

"Life is harder to handle than any dragon," Marion concludes, near the end. Hear-hear. Who needs big-budget CG blockbusters when you've real insight into the human condition at a fraction of the cost? And yet, ironically, 2 Days In New York is more shallow and crass (yet simultaneously safe and twee) than ninety percent of multiplex movies.

Blandly directed, self-consciously "wacky", peopled by infantile characters who show no signs of behaving like recognisable adults, the film breaks down into a series of tonally erratic comedy setpieces and mildly zany episodes full of overlapping banter and pertaining to nothing but a vague sense of snarky middle-class discontent. This is what I imagine a Friends movie would look like if they attempted to recapture the magic now: ego mayhem, cheap 'n' chuckling sex jokes, and cringeworthy First World whining.
