New York, I Love You Reviews
Posted by admin • 1 Comment »

From Roger Ebert-

The rules: No more than two days’ shooting time. One week of editing. An eight-minute time limit. Ten directors, and one more to consider the 10 short films and create transitions. “New York, I Love You” is the second installment in an ambitious project that began with “Paris, Je T’aime” (2006), an anthology with 13 directors. Rio is said to be next.

I suspect the title isn’t intended as a simple declaration, but should be pronounced in a wondering tone, with a wry shake of the head, as in, “oh, you kid.” The film assembles a collection of colorful characters, who find that eight minutes is quite enough to make an impression, as so many New Yorkers would agree.


Our thoughts: I absolutely love “New York, I Love You,” and I don’t just say that because I love New York as a city. Much like its beautiful predecessor “Paris, je t’aime,” this wonderful cinematic anthology of short films set in the Big Apple proves that especially genius screenwriting and strong acting can create a truly memorable big-screen experience.

“New York, I Love You” boasts a series of simple short films written and directed by different filmmakers from all over the world, and much like the city itself, the movie carries a strong multicultural character I found very easy to appreciate and enjoy. Even though each of these shorts clearly differs in style, they all flow together really well packed into one feature.
