When "New York, I Love You" was released I knew I had to see it, especially due to the marvelous Natalie Portman. However I hadn't had the chance yet to see it's prequel: "Paris, je t'aime". Thankfully the two movies consist of completely different storylines(and lots of them), so it doesn't really matter which one you watch first.
They are mosaic movies and provide a strange experience. Seeing so many different stories in an hour and a half seems impossible, when I finished watching I felt like I had just come back from a mini-vacation.
If you think it will be chaotic or that they won't take enough time for every scene, you couldn't be further from the truth. They are very slow paced and even though there definitely is a storyline in each and every scene, it is more about the overall vibe.
Both are filled with amazing actresses/actors and directors, but I prefer the second movie. It was somehow more cohesive and held a few extraordinary stories!
But I enjoyed them both tremendously and I would definitely recommend them! So next time you're in the mood for one of those slow "mainstream-arthouse-movies", you might wanna think of one of these.
Just a Little Update
It has been one hectic week, which left me with no energy at all for blogging. However I did make some plans for the blog as well as the shop. I even went shopping for packaging supplies yesterday, including for Christmas which is getting closer and closer.
And I can tell you there will be at least one giveaway in the near future! But more on that later...
