New York, I Love You

 In 2006 we had the marvelous petite affaire Paris, je t'aime directed by 22 movie directors. In short episodes a story of Paris and its people was told. This very original idea came from the writer Tristan CarnĂ© who collaborated with others on this project.

This fall 7 directors came up with stories of love and life in New York. Stories of New Yorkers are told by the inventive Jiang Wen, Mira Nair, Shunji Iwai, Yvan Attal, Brett Ratner, Allen Hughes, Shekhar Kapur.

"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."
