Okay... So I've seen Julie Delpy's Before Sunset, Before Sunrise and 2 days in Paris and enjoyed them. Sure, the films are very "chatty" but all in all pretty entertaining. Thus, I decided to watch 2 Days in New York. The film is just under one and a half hour and for approximately one hour and twenty-five minutes I was tormented by these maniac (and not the charming kind of maniac) french characters that were supposed to be her father, sister and the sister's boyfriend - who happens to also be Marion's (Julie's character) ex. It's pure horror. Really. At several occasions I very seriously considered just turning the film off, but I have this idea that every film I start watching deserve the chance to get better. Well... this one did. The last five minutes were actually pretty okay.
That's it. Five decent minutes out of ninety. Not really a good result, is it?
