New York, I Love You

New York, I Love You is the second movie in a series of films devoted to love in the city. When you think of a city for lovers one thinks of Paris. That's why the producers started with Paris, je t'aime. Now they have moved on to a city where love means different things to different people. In the Paris movie the shorts were titled and ran in a order. This continuity is not found in the New York film. Some might think that this hurts the premise but New York is not an easy place to find love. Stories placed in Tribeca, Central Park, the back of taxi cabs, even some of Coney Island intermingle with each other much like we do as New Yorkers. The actors must have loved the story because they all got on board to play a role. Natalie Portman, the handsome Shia LaBeouf, and even Orlando Bloom come to New York to play in this movie. All in all it was a interesting take on life and love in the city.
