2 Days in Paris


A very funny movie is now out on DVD.  “2 Days in Paris” was written and directed by Julie Delpy, who also stars along with her real-life parents and real-life ex-boyfriend.  It’s definitely a vanity project, but great fun.  It’s not the romantic story its title implies, and it’s a far cry from Delpy’s “Before Sunrise” and “Before Sunset” endeavors.  The film contains a brief homage to Marlon Brando on the Bir-Hakeim Bridge (Gallery II) in “Last Tango.”  Adam Goldberg gives a great performance (and utters some hilarious lines) as Delpy’s perpetually befuddled boyfriend, and her parents do a great job, too.  Worth seeing.
