2 Jours - 2 Days follows two days in the relationship of a New York based couple - a French photographer Marion and American interior designer Jack - as they attempt to re-infuse their relationship with romance by taking a vacation in Europe. Their trip to Venice didn't really work out, - they both came down with gastroenteritis. They have higher hopes for Paris. But the combination of Marion's overbearing non-English-speaking parents, flirtatious ex-boyfriends, and Jack's obsession with photographing every famous Parisian tombstone and conviction that French condoms are too small, only adds fuel to the fire. Will they be able to salvage their relationship? Will they ever have sex again? Or will they merely manage to perfect the art of arguing? Written by
While working on the movie, Julie Delpy claims she didn't watch any romantic comedies for inspiration. She did, however, watch Jaws (1975) several times. The arguments between Jake and Marion, she said, resembled a shark lurking in the water. See more »

Um, so what's the deal, man?
That guy was looking at you like you were a big leg of lamb. It's like he had the fork and the knife and the bib.
I am a big leg of lamb.
I know, but you're my leg of lamb. How do you know him?
Well, we met many years ago, and we had a little thing. I think I gave... I gave him a blowjob. No big deal.
Really? A blowjob's no big deal?
Oh, I'm sorry.
I'm all right.
No I mean, it's no big deal in comparison to what's going on in the world. You know, there's ...

I watched 2 Days in Paris staring Julie Delpy and Adam Goldberg last night. I've never much cared for Adam Goldberg, and I spent my own 2 days in Paris in 2000 and it was the hardest 2 days on a relationship I've ever had. Maybe that's why this has become one of my favorite films of all time. Watching Adam Goldberg deal with some of the same foreign travel problems and relationship issues that torture him throughout this movie.
The movie is half in French. It is definitely to your advantage if you don't speak French, because a key plot element is how Jack (Adam Goldberg) becomes so regularly frustrated by not understanding the language.
In the end, I think I loved this movie because it is one of the best love stories I've ever seen. It's not a Hollywood fairytale romance, it's real, it's gritty, quirky, funny, and ugly, just like love can be in real life.
