Movie Info

Ingenue Julie Delpy does triple duty as writer, director, and star of this romantic comedy. French photographer Marion (Delpy) and American interior designer Jack (Adam Goldberg) are returning from a vacation in Venice. Despite the fact that it was supposed to be the ultimate romantic getaway, disagreements and misunderstandings seemed to drive them farther apart rather than bringing them closer together. Before they return to the United States, Marion and Jack have a quick two-day stop in Paris

...an impressive, funny urban comedy of manners from a suitably distinctive voice that I hope we'll hear again soon.

For almost an hour, Delpy chases the spirits of Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell; why, then, an ultimate fondness for Ralph Bellamy?

2 Days in Paris proves Delpy's got an authentic ear for humor in two languages, and she turns the dewy-eyed notion of Paris as a city for lovers firmly and affectionately on its tête.

2 Days in Paris is a mix of awful Woody Allen and mental masturbation.

It often feels a touch aimless, wandering about without much of a plot to rely upon. But in the end, 2 Days in Paris manages to be a pleasant enough diversion.

There are funny jokes here and there, and of course Paris is lovely, but watching the two principals kvetch, moan, complain, obsess, and imagine illnesses for two hours gets quite tiring.

Delpy makes mistakes in this film by providing unnecessary narration... and assumptions about the audience from politics to sexual awareness

If Woody Allen's neurotic Alvy and Diane Keaton's Annie in Annie Hall had borne children it's a good bet they would have turned out like Marion (Julie Delpy) and Jack (Adam Goldberg) in 2 Days in Paris.

The satirical probe of modern love among the not so young and restless is infectiously delightful.

If "Before Sunset" gave us Paris in all its Bohemian romance, Delpy almost gleefully shows us the dingy, crabby flip side of the city here.

A vanity project? Hardly; more like the work of an accomplished filmmaker who knew exactly what type of movie she wanted to make.

The closest anyone has come to making a Woody Allen film apart from Allen himself. Moreover, she's made a good Woody Allen film.

Audience Reviews for 2 Days in Paris

Not so entertaining, but was okay to watch.

A tour de force reminiscent of Woody Allen's bittersweet love stories. Julie Delpy's triple threat debut is witty, funny, and poignant in its portrayal of a doomed romance. The blend of languages is seamless and depicts little-known aspects of American to French culture clash. I love the family's boisterous fight in the courtyard over Anna accidentally fattening up Marion's cat, then Jack peering down, asking if anything is wrong, and Marion saying bemusedly, "No. Why?" Marion's altercation with the racist cabbie is also ballsy and hilarious, with Delpy miming Hitler's mustache and the sign for asshole while braying, "Welcome to France," to Jack's prudish embarrassment.

In response to Flixster friend, Ryan Hibbett's critique of the film, I don't think Delpy is saying she hates France. She examines France's despicable qualities through an American lens, and vice versa, seeing as how she's almost an expat herself. The film pokes fun lovingly at idiosyncracies of both cultures (Jeannot's porny art and penchant for keying luxury cars vs. Jack's misanthropic treatment of his own countrymen for selfish reasons).

Also, Marion may have had a lot of ex-boyfriends, but she is not an immoral slut-bag. For one, she tearfully declines the affair with Mathieu, and for two, Delpy would reclaim that epithet in the name of feminism, this specific brand of which has roots in Simone de Beauvoir's "Manifesto of the 343 Sluts" (a no-shame pro-choice tract signed by 343 famous French feminists including Delpy's own mother, which Marie Pillet even mentions in the film). The aforementioned taxi altercation is so layered in this respect. It marks the boorishness of the French male but also the shamed pacifism of the "polite, intellectual" American male, Jack, who sits and does nothing to defend himself or his girlfriend while she expresses her ardent distaste for racism (an admirable quality) in an inebriated, vulgar, verbal castration (a less admirable quality for some, but a rousing show of feminism for her.)

Similar to the physical fracas in the cafe later, her morals behoove her to hate an ex who fucked little girls; her insatiable appetite for verbal castrations obviously behoove her to lose her temper. This little woman has a mouth on her, and she's not afraid to use it. She can be mean and annoying, but she owns it. She's not afraid to portray herself as the crazy French bitch.

Conversational movies can often be either really good or tedious and boring. "2 Days in Paris" falls smack dab in the middle. The characters are interesting, and the situations are humorous, but half way through you just lose interest. My wife stopped carry after about an hour. The movie revolves around Marion(Julie Delpy) and her boyfriend Jack(Adam Goldberg) as they spend 2 days in Paris with her family and friends before heading home to New York. Over the 2 days they learn things about each other they didn't know, and their relationship is tested in ways they never thought imaginable. All the while having deep conversations about politics, racism, sex, and other topics that goes borderline pretentious. It runs at 100 minutes, which is probably 20 minutes too long. It's okay for a watch if you are into these types of movies. But if you need something more to keep your interest, then pass on this.

Julie Delpy isn't just a pretty face. As well as being a good actress she is also a good director. She's obviously a big Woody Allen fans as well but to give her some credit this is much better than a lot of his recent offerings. She's also a fan of film in general, a few of her obvious favourites feature or are spoken of in this film. Her best quality as far as I can see in this film though is her generosity, I'm pretty much in the middle as far as my enjoyment of this film goes, some parts I hated and some parts I loved but all the good parts she gave to others and for that, I applaud her. Adam Goldberg was good too, it's a shame to see he isn't in the sequel but then I only watched this film because I'd heard so much about 2 Days in New York so I'll just have to wait and see.

    1. Marion: I like you, I would like to be your friend when we break up. Whenever we break up. No, if we break up. I would like you even if we were not together.
