A pathetic and insane series of clichés about French (dirty, ill-mannered and so on...). Shameful !
Oh my god. It's one of the worst movies I've ever seen in 30 years. What is very rare with me, I wanted to leave the theatre quickly after the beginning of the movie. The last time it happened to me it was 30 years ago, I was about 14. But this time, for the first time in my life, I left the movie theatre one half hour before the end, because I couldn't stand it any longer.
I saw that movie because one of my colleagues like "2 days in Paris", and this one was its sequel.
Right from the beginning, I was dismayed by the vulgarity of the movie. The character played by the french actor July Delpy (who is also the director of the movie) is vulgar and insane, telling with crude words her whole sexual life to one of her colleague.
But the worst came after : her french family came in New-York to visit her and her husband. Her father doesn't want to take a shower more than once a week, he was arrested at the airport because he had a lot of french sausages hidden under his clothes. Her sister and her sisters' partner are sex-addicts and drug users. The whole family is a bunch of asocial, immoral, ill-mannered and childish people.
Well, one could say : it's just a farce. But the problem is that it's not shown like that. They seemed to be a typical french family, a kind of primitive tribe coming in a civilized world, the US.
I didn't expect to see that kind of french-bashing coming from a french director. But True, Julie Delpy left France a long time ago and live in the US since many years now. Seeing that movie, I understand why : she seems to despise her former country and her former fellow citizens.
I can imagine some US french-haters seeing that movie in the US, laughing loudly, and thinking : "I always knew that the french were like that, and it's a french who tells us, so it must be true !" I felt insulted, as if mrs Delpy had spit on my face. I'm not chauvinistic, but I don't like to be insulted, as anybody else I think.
