List of New York I Love You Reviews

Ratings:2/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand Site:IBNLive

New York, I Love You, an anthology of ten short films about life and relationships in the Big Apple, is possibly the best cure for insomnia. This dull and cumbersome feature that includes shorts by 11 directors is second in a planned franchise that started with Paris Je T’aime in 2006. The larger problem with this omnibus is that most of the shorts come off as either affected or cynical, but always boring. Where’s the spirit, the energy of this cultural melting pot which we’ve heard so much about?I’m going with two out of five for New York, I Love You; not all shorts are unwatchable, but as a collection, it’s mostly dreary and pretentious. You’ll find it hard to stay awake.

So what’s your favourite New Yorkism? Multi-culturalism, pub culture, smoking on the side-walks, friendly cabbie rides, night-outs with strangers, no-strings-attached sensual encounters, absolute anonymity, endless opportunity, Broadway binging, Central Park strolling, skyscraper gazing, Fifth Avenue ambling, Brooklyn Bridging, Village hopping, day dreaming, night riding….New York, I Love You offers you all this and so much more; sometimes through a vibrant palette of deft strokes and succinct characters and sometimes in somewhat pallid form. Truly, this brain child of producer Emmanuel Benbihy who began with the Parisian ode, Paris Je t’Aime and proposes to make similar `I Love You’ films on Rio, Shanghai, Mumbai and Jerusalem, is a mixed bag. Understandably, everyone is going to have their personal favourites.

Those who remember Paris, je t’aime (2006) fondly are likely to thumb up this bite of the Big Apple. Others may be disappointed, though, with the  hodgepodge of styles offered by the various eight-to-ten minute vignettes served by 10 directors.The brief segments just don’t come together to make a common point. As disturbingly, native New Yorkers such as Woody Allen, Martin Scorsese and Spike Lee are conspicuous by their absence in this tribute of sorts to Gothamville.

New York, I love you too is a collective tale, although difference being, the characters here just cross paths, their lives are not intertwined. 11 romantic short stories directed by 11 international filmmakers run parallel throughout the film. Each film is 8 minute long. The 11 open ended romantic tales may have a different story to tell but they all revolve around seeking and finding love in the least expected places. The anxiety and uncertainty of human nature when it comes to love is captured perfectly in all of these tales and that is what makes you like this film.
