2 DAYS IN PARIS
2007, Samuel Goldwyn Films, 96 min, France, Dir: Julie Delpy

A Parisian getaway becomes anything but romantic for a high-strung New York couple in Julie Delpy's smart, sexy comedy about how opposites attract - and then slowly drive each other crazy. Marion (Delpy) is a French photographer and Jack (Adam Goldberg) is an American interior designer. After a less-than-idyllic vacation in Italy, they stop off in Paris for two days, where Jack is flummoxed by a new language and culture - and a bevy of Marion’s flirtatious ex-boyfriends. As the cultural divide between them grows, will these two days in Paris become their last as a couple, or the beginning of a richer life together? Written, directed and edited by Delpy, it is an insightful, bitingly funny dissection of contemporary relationships that rings true in any language.
