Socialist Worker

2 Days In Paris

Julie Delpy and Adam Holberg feature in this film as a pair of 35 year old professionals, two years into an intense relationship.

En route back to their New York home from Venice via Delpy’s family home in France, the two jest, bicker and swap detailed observations on political and cultural mores.

Much of this at the personal level reflects political clashes between Europe and the US. Holberg cannot fathom the wacky world of Delpy’s parents, still living the spirit of May 1968.

This hilarious and perceptive romantic comedy rescues the genre from its recent highly sexist tendencies. Woody Allen in his prime would be proud of it. And Delpy’s almost single handed production sets up great expectations for her future projects.
