Fresh: A movie that is as acutely painful as it is acutely funny.
- Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer, Saturday, September 22, 2007
Fresh: 2 Days in Paris may seem familiar, with its manic, walking-and-talking rhythms reminiscent of Woody Allen and Diane Keaton in the 1970s. But you never know where it's going, which is one of the film's greatest pleasures.

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.

"This isn't Paris. This is hell." Marion and Jack try to rekindle their relationship with a visit to Paris, home of Marion's parents -- and several of her ex-boyfriends. REVIEW Impossible to watch without entertaining the ghost of Richard Linklater (Before Sunrise/Before Sunset). Indeed Delpy clearly has the aesthetic, subject material and script content in her own mind as well. It is a great testament to her that this is an idiosyncratic, coherent and self- contained rom-com in the metropolitan tradition of Annie Hall. It helps that she persuaded Adam Goldberg to play her lover. He's a fine actor (look no further than Linklater's own Dazed and Confused, no less) but here he's careful not to overplay the Jewish weltschmerz. He's attentive to the chief protagonist being the relationship that the two principals have and not each of them individually. Delpy also does a fine job given that she's clearly shuttling between different ends of the camera - not too 'kooky'. The ensemble cast is well taken without reserve, all creating striking but not overpowering characters along the way. The film is shot largely hand-held and jumps through the episodes with an energy that goes with the purported watershed age of Jack and Marion (they're meant to be 35). I liked it very much.
