New York I Love You  +3
Some movies start with explosions, this one starts with a meeting of thieves. Soon after a scene involving diamonds; I hate to guess the plot of a movie in the first few minutes, but I venture to think a heist is in order. During the introduction to the characters we get to hear many languages and meet some smart characters, it has a good chance to be a great movie.
The movie is almost over and we are still introducing characters; perhaps this is just a meaningless collection of pointless short stories, an insight into the human condition.
Now that the movie is almost over I wish they would have just stolen the diamonds or perhaps the characters could have met at some point. There is so much that could have been done with these well developed characters, but I guess that’s like meeting strangers in NYC.
Lovely story with no plot earns 3 out of 5 stars.
