New York, I Love You
In theaters from thursday 29 october 2009
Directed by an eclectic group of some of today's most imaginative filmmakers, NEW YORK, I LOVE YOU invites the audience into the intimate lives of New Yorkers as they grapple with, delight in and search for love. In the Diamond District, an intercultural romantic fantasy transforms the purchase of a precious stone. Meanwhile, in Chinatown, a desperate artist pursues a reluctant muse. Within an Upper East Side hotel, a sophisticated guest and a mysterious bellboy journey outside of time. After an unexpected night in Central Park, a young man's prom date has a surprising revelation. Travelling towards the Village, two lovers speed by taxi, subway and foot to meet for the first time after what they thought was a one-night stand. In Tribeca, a pickpocket finds the tables turned when he follows an alluring girl. And in Brooklyn, a moment of Coney Island bliss envelops an octogenarian couple. These stories and more are all woven together to form a colourful, lyrical collage not only of the city but of the deep yearning for love and human connections that sustain everyone within it. Following on the heels of the acclaimed PARIS JE T'AIME, the project is the second episode of the Cities of Love series of collective feature films.
