2 Days in New York (2011)

Directed by: Julie Delpy
Country: France

Plot: Manhattan couple Marion and Mingus, find their comfortable family dynamic jostled by a visit from Marion's relatives.
Quick comment: “2 days in New York” follows 2007’s “2 days in Paris”. This time, famous actress/director Julie Delpy introduces a very peculiar French family in action, Chris Rock having long conversations with an Obama’s poster and even Vincent Gallo buying souls. It tries to look wacky and delivers some craziness that worked fine for a few times, but most of the situations were completely neurotic silliness. In sum, this is a confrontation between French and American cultures that doesn’t take us anywhere.
