Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Adam Goldberg delivers "an uproarious study in transatlantic culture panic" (MTV) as Jack, an anxious, hypochondriac-prone New Yorker vacationing throughout Europe with his breezy, free-spirited Parisian girlfriend, Marion (Delpy). But when they make a two-day stop in Marion's hometown, the couple's romantic trip takes a turn as Jack is exposed to Marion's sexually perverse and emotionally unstable family, her coarse temperament with cab drivers and her ex-lovers... her many ex-lovers. Culture-shocked and ego-bruised, Jack finds himself hoping that their relationship can survive as their love is revealed in surprising ways.

Amazon.com

Julie Delpy, having spent the entirety of Richard Linklater's Before Sunrise and Before Sunset walking around European cities and talking, decides to take hold of the reins herself in Two Days in Paris. For this somewhat similar gabfest, Delpy writes, directs, and casts herself as one half of a neurotically fun couple, who stop over to visit her parents for a couple of days in (duh) Paris. Adam Goldberg brings his shaggy worrywart persona as Delpy's better half--and why shouldn't he worry? Her parents seem happy to play pranks on him, and Delpy's ex-boyfriends materialize in every arrondissement. Despite their differences in style, these two have enjoyable chemistry together, and Goldberg is gifted with razor-sharp timing. Good to see Delpy, who has often been tapped for ethereal types, playing a feistier character than usual. It doesn't hurt anything at all that they are walking and talking through Paris, a city with an inexhaustible number of attractive angles. At some point you may begin to realize that the movie doesn't seem to be about very much, and without Linklater's ingenious fixed-time structure, there's little urgency to the ongoing conversation. If you haven't seen the Linklater films, absolutely check those out first, and consider this a photogenic side dish. --Robert Horton

4.0 out of 5 stars Real Love In Paris February 3, 2008
Format:DVD
Julie Delpy and Adam Goldberg stop in Paris to visit Delpy's parents after a stressful trip to Venice. The story is simple-Delpy keeps running into ex-lovers and Goldberg imagines that his girlfriend is a slut and comes to the conclusion that he "doesn't know her at all".

As serious as this plot sounds, I was laughing for most of this film. There is enough humor in this script to keep the film light. Many of the funny scenes arise out of cultural differences refreshingly void of the typical French vs. American cliches. Much of the humor is "French"-like the scene at the dinner table when the family yells at each other one minute and then starts laughing a few minutes later. Americans would describe this as "bi-polar drama", but the French view this sort of passion and recovery as normal. There are also subtle cultural references like the "385 Bitches" and Delpy's sexual attempts to be on top-a French man would be able to explain to you that French women are known for their independence. Unlike other reviewers here, I found Delpy and Goldberg a charming couple and enjoyed watching their antics. I never wondered why this couple was together-it seems like couples are usually fighting when travelling through Europe together. It was interesting to see what comes out of the arguments I've always heard on the streets! Many of the minor characters in this film are extremely charming-especially Delpy's parents. A fun film if you get it. If you're in a bad relationship right now, this film might be too close to home.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2 Days of Laughter August 10, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A couple decide to spend a couple days in Paris on their way back from a vacation in Venice. Marion wants to show her American boyfriend Jack something of herself, by showing him something of the city she grew up in. They both get more than they bargained for, with absurdly comic results.

This is very much a Julie Delpy project. She wrote, produced, directed, starred, edited and musically arranged the movie, and the results are in: it is an excellent and original film not only about 'couple-hood' but the process of understanding, misunderstanding and simply 'getting-along' with the rest of humanity.

Adam Goldberg performs admirably as Jack, a New Yorker with an interesting bouquet of nueroses and a snappy comeback. Julie's father Albert played the delightful part of her (walk-on part please... ;) whacky bohemian dad. Aleksia Landeau, Adan Jodorowsky and Daniel Bruhl handle their funny, extremely quirky roles so very well.

Where the movie shines comedically are Marion's arguments and fight scenes. Julie is one woman who knows how to set-up a good set-to and she delivers... She had me rolling! Definitely worth buying and watching (many times). Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars theater of the absurd February 24, 2008
Format:DVD
There is not a dull moment in this film. Delpy has a blast playing with cliches and truisms about the French - and Americans. She pokes at the racism, promiscuity, xenophobia, intellectual pretensions and vulgarity that come to light as soon as one scratches the surface of the French psyche.

On the other hand, she also shows the hearty, food-loving, stylish and alive core of the French where the family sticks together for better and worse and where life is appreciated for its own sake.

An argument for the French is not a time to reach for the gun, or call the psychiatrist - it is an opportunity to display how you feel, and get the emotional charge out of your system. A healthy way of being in the world, which sometimes scares the crap out of the typical American ...yet what do you prefer: the true person or fake politeness?

The film plays with national and class stereotypes in a tight, fast-paced, brilliantly scripted story which nevertheless finds plenty of space to touch genuine and deep human emotions and predicaments. Delpy explores the nature of connection tethered to the inexorable fact the we know all too well: that "love" and commitment involves daily negotiation, adaptation and acceptance of teh partner for who they are. A relationship where personal quirks and idiosyncrasies are not only indulged but in some weird way celebrated. Where one never knows when or why the break-up occurs, sometimes hanging in on the precipice of chance.

In other words, Delpy's Paris, and her French and Americans are real people and the story is a story about reality, even though, paradoxically, the film itself is made to poke fun at cliches. I laughed most the time, and at other times I was sad. What more can one want from a film?

5.0 out of 5 stars Best I've seen in a long time August 19, 2009
Format:DVD
A pair of mismatched lovers spend two days in Paris growing increasingly leery of each other as they discover hidden secrets and personality quirks. Adam Goldberg plays the American of the pair in a somewhat cliched American in Paris role, acting befuddled by French inscrutability. The subtitles are very amusing as we see what insults the French are flinging. Julie Delpy has the best role, and, not surprisingly, she wrote the script. A lot of this rings true, and it's way above average adult entertainment. Watch this!
