    Julie Delpy has charm, the actors are naturalistic and there are both some good laughs and good insights. Yet the film has many flaws. It is clear that Ms. Delpy could have used some help in tightening the script (which often becomes tedious), improving the sound quality and improving the claustrophobic and shaky hand-held filming style. One example: in the climactic scene, the audience Julie Delpy has charm, the actors are naturalistic and there are both some good laughs and good insights. Yet the film has many flaws. It is clear that Ms. Delpy could have used some help in tightening the script (which often becomes tedious), improving the sound quality and improving the claustrophobic and shaky hand-held filming style. One example: in the climactic scene, the audience is anticipating to hear some dialogue between the two lovers to resolve their issues, but what we get is a voice over from Delpy instead. (There are entirely too many voice overs.) There's a good movie in here somewhere, but the group of us who saw the move yesterday agreed that she didn't quite get it. Expand

    Boring dialogue from two characters who inspired indifference.

  1. The movie should be seen with a large, responsive audience--the better to live with it in the moment instead of worrying about where it’s going.

    Anyone hoping that 2 Days in Paris will revisit such peppy romance (“Annie Hall”), however, will be frustrated. There is an extra rawness here, a determination to confront and annoy.

    Delpy shows Linklater's influence in her willingness to let actors work and walk at length, and she has an unusually playful style for an actor turned filmmaker.
