“Two Days in Paris”

Paleo Retiree writes:

The Wife and I managed only 20 minutes of this charmer-wannabe, written and directed by the French actress Julie Delpy, before giving up. It’s about a spatting/loving couple (Adam Goldberg, not very appealing, and Delpy herself), and it seems intended as a female take on a Woody Allen movie. It completely failed to engage us, though. But we watched the interview with Delpy that’s included on the DVD, and we both liked her. She’s smart, and she has a real performer’s put-it-out-there guts. The movie is currently available on Netflix streaming.

    Was smitten by Delpy in Before Sunrise and Before Sunset. I assumed this film was a tip of the hat to those as well as Woody Allen. I also found it charmless and forced.

    Sad to hear this didn’t turn out well, as I really like both Delpy and Goldberg, but this is definitely the feel I got from the trailer and reviews. Delpy can give off a coolly confident fun and sexy vibe, something French girls seem to do very well. I’ve had a lingering crush on her ever since I snuck Killing Zoe out of the library at a young age. Much as I like him, Goldberg just doesn’t seem like this kind of leading man. He’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for his roles in The Prophecy and Saving Private Ryan, though. He’s also set to play Harry Reems in the Matthew Wilder Linda Lovelace biopic, which could be fun.

  3. I like Delpy as an actress too — saucy, chic, composed, tragic, talented, does nudity, all those great French-actress qualities. This movie was lame, though. Goldberg didn’t interest me at all. But he can be good, is that right?
