  There are recipes that are so simple and so plausible that it must be realized easily. For example, even this one, now the thread from Paris, je t’aime, and transatlantic picks up in the Big Apple weiterspinnt. Other parts of the project, which was established under the label of “Cities of Love” are currently being planned, next to follow Jerusalem, Rio de Janeiro, Shanghai, Venice and Timbuktu. In Berlin, ick love you, “we of course have to wait a little while. , Fatih Akin, Yvan Attal, Allen Hughes, Shunji Iwai, Jiang Wen, Shekhar Kapur, Joshua Marston, Mira Nair, Natalie Portman, Brett Ratner and Randall Balsmeyer called the directors who, together with Marina Emmanuel Benbihy Grasic this time has gathered behind the camera. Even the cast is impressive: Andy Garcia, Hayden Christensen, Rachel Bilson, Natalie Portman, Irrfan Khan, Orlando Bloom, Christina Ricci, Maggie Q, Ethan Hawke, James Caan, Olivia Thirlby, Bradley Cooper, Drea De Matteo, Julie Christie , John Hurt, Shia LaBeouf, Ugur Yücel, Shu Qi, Chris Cooper, Robin Wright Penn, Eli Wallach, Cloris Leachman, and many more work in the twelve stories of love in the most exciting cities with the world. Although the filmmakers were free to choose their subjects, there were strict rules to comply, which was to preserve the balance between the individual stories and also to ensure that the end result did not go out of control. It was necessary each of the stories to be linked, each story should be something to do with love with a New York City and have every story should result in a roughly eight-minute episode. In addition to these basic requirements, there were other restrictions on the production. Each of the directors so had exactly two days to put his story with some of his actors and camera people. Then each of the filmmakers up to seven days in the editing room with an editor’s choice were granted, while at the same time the next team has already shot a new episode. And finally, all directors were within their time window with the same costume, scene, and farmers working the identical rest of the team. Unlike with such a rigorous production schedule such a film would have been hardly feasible. The greatest strength of bus projects such as this is also almost always their most obvious weakness: the variety of the different contributions of different directors will almost inevitably to the heterogeneity of the thread will be using a frame story made only with difficulty be. This impression is reinforced by the innovation that the individual episodes are not durcherzählt from beginning to end, but sometimes jumped between the individual segments. The overall result is usually mixed and has a significant quality gap. Also in this regard is New York, I Love You is no exception. To the successful episodes include Brett Ratner’s episode in Central Park, is sacked in the course of a teenager (Anton Yelchin), just before the final ball of his heartless friend. Thank goodness knows the pharmacist Riccoli Frank (James Caan) Council and presented to the unfortunate young man his own daughter (Olivia Thirlby) as a replacement. However, sitting in a wheelchair. Fantastic also Joshua Marston (Maria Full of grace) miniature of an old couple (Eli Wallach and Cloris Leachman), the quarrels of the Brighton Beach boardwalk, the scraps that fly – and yet can not live without each other. Yvan Attal is also remarkable episode to a charming Ripper (Ethan Hawke), the ausbeißt on a strange beauty (Maggie Q) teeth. Unfortunately, not all stories are so successful is how these three, but we entertain pleasant also because of the brevity of the contributions. Even if some of the stories may not be as funny and surprising as Paris, je t’aime appears, the movie at least formally considered harmonious, the differences are in style and production not so much weight affects the whole is more of a piece. This is mainly due to the increasing nesting and interlocking of the individual episodes, the stories of different people can meet, then to switch from one narrative to the next. Although known such associative connections by other episode films like Short Cuts, compared to Paris, je t’aime, but this represents an innovation, and could well establish itself in the following works of “Cities of Love” series as a standard. The flow of the narrative and compelling nature of the film, this does not detract in any case – to the contrary. Total affects New York, I Love You more dynamic, modern and urban than its predecessor. If it was going to succeed or to refine the selection of stories, this format could reap even greater for some. The potential is certainly there. And the way apparently not over yet … (Paul Collmar)
