  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)

  More than eight years after 11 September 2001 seems to overcome the trauma cinematically, at least to some extent. In some of the new productions are no longer coping and grief at the center. But it seems possible again, New York City to celebrate as exceptional. New York, I love you regardless of the feelings expressed in the title, Julie Delpy turns after 2 days in Paris and New York two days. And Rosa von Praunheim is worth a visit with his declaration of love to some extent by the past: New York Memories. It would have been the activists of the gay movement in his latest work may also contribute to the motto “New York, I love you”. Because the film is a silent, with a slight understatement coming along, but very personal tribute to his view the most exciting city in the world. As always with intense love relationships also play disappointment, sadness, anger and a piece of a role. Rosa von Praunheim tells us right at the beginning on why he spurned mistress for ten years. It was not the same as when he was obsessed with her. Sex clubs were closed, artists have been displaced. Mayor Rudolph Giuliani (the end of 2001) had cleared the city and made boring. Nevertheless, there is the director of the former flame in the year 2009 a new opportunity. There is Rosa von Praunheim just love young fresh in the Oliver, who had never been to New York. They combine the pleasant with the useful and start a film project that succeeds precisely because of its casual and everyday so convincing. Rosa does with Oliver (who is responsible for sound) what you are doing just as if you were long gone. He visits former friends, asking how to do it, whether they are still with the former partner are together and working in the same job. The result is a mosaic of what constitutes the fascination of New York, far beyond the accidents of individual life. Like any great love New York offers to those who fall are her chance and a risk. The opportunities lie in the openness to life plans that do not fit into the concept elsewhere, about the issue of transgender. So says the 14-year-old Isaac, is that New York one of the best places for transgender people. Here there is a tremendous understanding for people like him, who was born a girl, but from the beginning, the feeling had to be a boy. Praunheim interview partners have hinted but also how difficult it is to compete in New York, if only because of the rents, easy to swallow with the complete $ 2,000 of wages. Who in Germany or Europe as an artist has had initial success in New York not long established, for example, reported Lucie Pohl, daughter of a married couple from Germany, the Praunheim in a previous stay had met. Nevertheless, Lucie wants as the hardness of the artistic rivalry set as her sister Marie. Both have good alternatives, they might continue her career in Berlin or Munich easier. Marie has the book in Germany Marie’s trip (# Journal) and Lucie was in Berlin at drama school. Also Rosa von Praunheim can not leave New York even if he deliberately nostalgic tone, the á la “before everything was better” strikes. He systematically cut clips from his most successful film to survive in New York (1987) in the current work. But that is beside the Vergangenheitsverklärung a further function. We meet in New York Memories namely Anna and Claudia again, then two of the protagonists. The two has done him good, that they have established themselves in Manhattan and Harlem. Even at their stories and reflections can be read that Praunheim film is much more than just a memory. He is a current inventory. (Peter Gutting) The movie will start in 2010 in German cinemas, an exact launch date has not yet been determined.   Title: New York Memories Country of production: , Germany Year of Production: 2010 Length: 89 (Min.)
