2 Days In New York Review


Excellent
Delpy follows her wonderful 2007 comedy 2 Days in Paris with a sequel that perhaps isn't quite as consistent as the original. But it's both funnier and more romantic, as each character in the story catches our imaginations and our hearts.

Marion (Delpy) and her boyfriend Mingus (Rock) each have young children (Shipman and Riley) from previous relationships, and their blended family is doing just fine until Marion's dad (Julie's real dad Albert) arrives from France with her sister Rose (Landeau) and Rose's loutish boyfriend Manu (Nahon), who of course is one of Marion's exes. For two days, these three interlopers push all of Marion's and Mingus' buttons, straining their relationship to the breaking point. And their neighbours (Baker and Burton) are even more irritated.

Excellent
By all indications, actor/director/musician/man-about-town Vincent Gallo's second full-length feature The Brown Bunny should have collapsed under the weight of its own negative hype.

Despite this pronouncement, The Brown Bunny went on to win a special critic's prize at the Viennale Film Festival. And a week before the film's U.S. opening -- as Gallo drove a print of the film around the country to host advance screenings -- a billboard company tore down a previously approved advertisement depicting Gallo and Sevigny en flagrante.

How can a director protect 92 minutes of celluloid from such a deluge of distraction? With heart, elegance and respect for his audience; and Gallo does just that.

The star explained her reactions to the reviews from Cannes Film Festival, by discussing how natural and intimate the scene is. Furthermore, she expressed dismay to the controversy it sparked, arguing: "I'm really angry at the way everyone's trivialising it. It's a really intense romantic scene, really beautiful. It's not gratuitous, it's deep. I do it in everyday life. Everybody's done it, or had it done to them."
