Director Julie DelpyYear 2012Genre(s) Alternative
French beauty Marion and radio presenter Mingus have a wonderfully healthy relationship at home with their children from former relationships. However, their happiness is tested on the arrival of her unconventional and mischievous family who bring with them vulgarity, casual racism and bold opinions. Among them are Rose, Marion's sexually obsessed sister; her crazy boyfriend; Marion's ex-boyfriend and her sausage loving father. Mingus starts to have second thoughts about his girlfriend who appears to have a completely different personality around her outrageous family; he even talks about his frustrations with a cardboard cut-out of his hero and US President Barack Obama. Is their relationship strong enough to survive this new and complicated situation?
This wonderfully funny romantic comedy is a follow-up to the 2007 French-German film '2 Days in Paris' which won a Coup de Coeur award at the Mons International Festival of Love Films and sees the return of Parisian main star, writer and director Julie Delpy. A film based on exaggerated cultural stereotypes, '2 Days in New York' could be seen as insulting if it weren't for the fact that it's too ridiculous for words. A delightful love story nonetheless, it hit UK cinemas back in May this year (2012) and has so far received reasonably positive reviews from critics.
Starring: Chris Rock, Julie Delpy, Kate Burton, Dylan Baker, Malinda Williams, Carmen Lopez, Emily Wagner and Arthur French.
