New York, I Love You trailer online
I really enjoyed, it was a lovely film, wonderfully put together and had some gorgeous sections. There was the great range of actors, both French Paris Je t’aime (Filmstalker review) and foreign, and some wonderful scripting that really brought out the humanity and emotion in the stories.
I watched it and wondered if they would consider doing one film for every city in the world, and so along came New York, I Love You, and a heart warming and star studded trailer.
The film follows the same idea as the wonderful Paris Je t’aime, various short films all along the same theme of New York and how the characters, writers and directors love New York.
The list of directors for New York, I Love You is rather eclectic, but it's an interesting list:
Fatih Akin, Yvan Attal, Allen Hughes, Shunji Iwai, Wen Jiang, Shekhar Kapur, Joshua Marston, Mira Nair, Natalie Portman, Brett Ratner, Randall Balsmeyer
With writing duties falling to:
Emmanuel Benbihy, Tristan Carné, Hall Powell, Israel Horovitz, James C. Strouse, Shunji Iwai, Israel Horovitz, Hu Hong, Yao Meng, Israel Horovitz, Scarlett Johansson, Joshua Marston, Alexandra Cassavetes, Stephen Winter, Jeff Nathanson, Anthony Minghella, Natalie Portman, Fatih Akin, Yvan Attal, Olivier Lécot, Suketu Mehta
I won't even begin to go through the talent involved because there are absolute tons of names from Bradley Cooper to Robin Wright Penn, from Orlando Bloom to Rachel Bilson, from James Caan to Maggie Q, from...and so on, the list is astounding.
Here's a bit of the official blurb for it:
In the city that never sleeps, love is always on the mind. Those passions come to life in NEW YORK, I LOVE YOU – a collaboration of storytelling from some of today’s most imaginative filmmakers and featuring an all-star cast. Together they create a kaleidoscope of the spontaneous, surprising, electrifying human connections that pump the city’s heartbeat. Sexy, funny, haunting and revealing encounters unfold beneath the Manhattan skyline. From Tribeca to Central Park to Brooklyn the story weaves a tale of love as diverse as the very fabric of New York itself.
Enough of me talking go and see the wonderful trailer on Apple Trailers [P:S:M:L:480p:720p:1080p] in the usual formats.
If you're curious how it compares, here's the trailer for Paris Je t’aime (Filmstalker review), another gorgeous film, and I can say that since I've seen it, and you most definitely should too.
What I have to ask now is what city next? I would love to see Edinburgh, but I suspect the closest we'll see is London. How about it Scottish talent? Could we get together a Edinburgh, “You're alright and that”?
