Capital Celluloid 2018 - Day 45: Wed Feb 14

2 Days in Paris (Deply, 2007): Cine Lumiere, 8.50pm

This special Valentine's Day screening will be from a 35mm print.

Chicago Reader review:
Among the many offhand virtues of Julie Delpy's first feature as solo writer-director (2007) is the fact that she's as attentive to French foibles as American ones. She and Adam Goldberg play a New York couple, returning from a holiday in Venice, whose cultural and temperamental differences begin to drive them apart during a stay in Paris with her mother and father (played by Delpy's actual parents). This lacks the sweetness and terseness of Richard Linklater's 
Before Sunset, which Delpy cowrote, but it's more satirical and casual in its approach, and Delpy's grasp of the material is assured.
Jonathan Romney

Here (and above) is the trailer.
