2 Days in Paris

Julie Delpy
Deux jours à Paris
France, Germany 2007 / 96’

Delpy (...) plays Marion, a French resident of the United States, a photographer with an intriguing vision defect. For two years Marion has been in a relationship with a bearded and tattooed New Yorker Jack (Goldberg), a professional interior designer. Two years are often a critical period for relationships, so Marion and Jack took a trip to Venice to renew their feelings - which was hardly successful and now, on their way back to the States, they stay for two days in Marion's hometown, Paris. If Venice was a failure, Paris is a disaster - for many reason, and the most important one is that they keep bumping into Marion's ex-boyfriends (...) 2 Days in Paris plays with stereotypes - stereotypes about the title city, about women, men and many others. Everything here is powerfully spoken (and the dialogues are brilliant), shown in episodes (most of them hilarious) and appears somewhat improvised (although in reality everything is very well-considered).
