2 Days in New York

by Giovanni Fazio

Special To The Japan Times

Director: Julie Delpy

Language: English

Basically the comedy version of the “Before Sunrise” series, “2 Days in New York” — like its predecessor “2 Days in Paris” — has Julie Delpy starring and directing in a relationship crisis from hell. Delpy’s character Marion is in a new relationship with Mingus (Chris Rock) and things are going swimmingly … until Marion’s family visit from Paris. Delpy mines American stereotypes about the French (and vice versa) for plenty of laughs, echoing the best of 1970s Woody Allen.
