REVIEW:

2 Days in Paris is Julie Delpyís directorial debut on a feature, she also wrote and starred in the film. The film does have similar traits to Before Sunset, which she also co-wrote with Ethan Hawke and Richard Linklater. This story captures a relationship that is two years old. Marion (Delpy) and Jack (Goldberg) take a trip around Europe to re-ignite the passion in their relationship; unfortunately their travels so far havenít turned out to be the most romantic. Their last stop is Paris, where they spend two days with Marionís family and friends. These last couple of days however, manage to knock the coupleís relationship slightly off the curb. Delpyís film clearly shows the struggle couples go through when theyíre from different places. All relationships can be hard of course but in this case the language and culture differences bare a heavy weight. Delpy, who is French but lives in the US, knows how interesting love can be with different people. Delpy tells the tale simple and clear and merely invites the audience in to observe.

I was intrigued by the fact that Delpy used an old boyfriend of hers (Adam Goldberg) to play her boyfriend in the movie as well as her real parents, Marie Pillet and Albert Delpy, to play her parents. She made a conscious decision of doing that and it certainly adds charm to the film. The chemistry is there between the couple, it actually makes me wish that they were still together in real life. Her parents, who are also actors, play her parents beautifully. Using family and friends in the film allows the story to take on a more natural note, which then becomes more engaging for the viewers.

Adam Goldberg is one of those actors that we still see too little of. I do wish heíd turn up in more movies. He does have a distinct way about him, which is always a part of each character he plays. It may be repetitive to some but itís one of the things I like most about him - not every actor can get away with it but in my books Goldberg can. Heís a gem. He still also manages to be versatile, he can be sexy, goofy, classy, all colours of the rainbow.

Delpy shows an in-depth point of view of French culture and behaviour. All the taxi drivers are abusive, sexist, or racist and because of the language barrier, Jack has no clue. Itís quite amazing to see how they both have different experiences each time they get into a taxi. Itís an alien experience for Jack as heís exposed to a different world especially when Marionís friends are so vulgar and sexual too. A lot of the time he really has no clue because a lot of the conversation takes place in French. He is definitely a lost soul Ė itís funny Ė poor guy, he feels the tension but has no idea what itís about and how to react. Cultural differences are always underestimated but honestly so many things get misinterpreted. Such is the case here, which is a great thing to capture.

Love and relationships is something we all know and have experienced. Relationships can last years even a lifetime but sometimes they wither and die within months. Theyíre not always wonderful and roses, they can be hard work too. Human beings canít get on all the time. Itís healthy to fight, to disagree. We all need to express ourselves, let off steam and if you care about each other enough the feud will pass. Jack thought that he knew everything about Marion but when he discovers a different side to her, his insecurities start to surface. We discover things that we donít like about each other but it doesnít always make us turn away. Sometimes itís about forgiving and forgetting. Weíre confused, lonely beings and sometimes we donít make a lot of sense. Both of the characters are easy to like and to relate to, so when problems start to surface you want to support the both of them. Theyíre a great match, both individually strong and even better together.

This film is funny, honest, and romantic. Once again a simple story that brings emotions to life. Itís about capturing a moment and sharing it with the rest. Delpy is a natural when it comes to her acting, directing, writing and I look forward to watching more of her films in the future. Itís also a pleasure to see a female filmmaker doing so well. There is still too few of them out there.
