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.

Gifted and rebellious avant-garde filmmaker auteur Julie Delpy takes the bull by the horns in 2 Days in Paris and seems to want to steer a change in cinema.

It seems as if her desire is to create another wave in French cinema following the first new wave movement by Francois Truffaut, Jean-Luc Godard, and finally be Alain Resnais. In the end, she succeeds. Her camera angles and camera eye are quite refreshing. I rented this movie in High Definition (HD) so my point of view might be askew yet HD's effect did add to the story telling of this movie. Along with the typical story of a couple, Marion, a photographer, Delpy, and Jack, an interior designer, played by Adam Goldberg, fighting after vacationing in Venice: a typical Hollywood formula script, Point A to Point B to Point C, yet the change from typical Hollywood cinema changes when they get to Paris. That's when the auteur takes over in telling her story.

Paris is where her parents live. This movie is steeped in French culture. At the dinner table, the father requests the rabbit's head. The camera zooms in on the braised rabbit head as the father anxiously waits to be served. Another French culture reference is when the couple are in a Parisian taxi. Marion takes the bull by the horns and starts to argue with the tough guy Parisian cab driver. Traffic is hell in Paris. Yet Marion's verbal combat with the cab driver also shows another side of her cinematic vision: women are strong enough to stand up for themselves. While the two are arguing, Jack sits quietly next to her and stays speechless. He knows his girlfriend's temperament, quite strong indeed. Strong enough to argue with a rough and ready Parisian taxi driver.

This movie is more about social commentary than a typical Hollywood type of movie.

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!

Julie Delpy is amazing. I was a fan of hers from the "Before" series, but here she shows she can direct as well as act and write. Her parents, who play her parents in the movie, are enchanting. Her co-star Adam did a credible job, but I couldn't quite accept someone like Delpy with his character. Paris is always a delightful backdrop.

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?
