Recently released DVD: 2 Days in Paris – starring/written/directed by Julie Delpy
‘2 Days in Paris’ follows two days in the lives of a New York based couple; a Paris born photographer, Marion, and an American interior designer, Jack. They attempt to re-infuse their relationship by taking a European vacation. Their trip to Venice didn’t really work out as Jack came down with gastroenteritis. They have higher hopes for Paris but the combination of Marion’s overbearing non-English speaking parents, flirtatious ex-boyfriends and Jack’s many neurotic obsessions only add fuel to the fire. This movie is a little self-indulgent, in a Woody Allen style, but very worth seeing with its many Parisian scenes and more French language with subtitles than you would expect from an American movie. With an interesting view on relationships, it is funny and thought provoking.
