Julie’s a control freak for sure. Julie Delpy, that is. In 2007, she wrote, edited, produced, and directed Two Days in Paris, an excellent romantic comedy with the clever tagline: He knew Paris was for lovers – he just didn’t think they were all hers. Of course Julie also had the lead role, and took care of the soundtrack as well, finally even managing to breathe new life into Nouvelle Vague, the doornail-deadest concept combo of them all. Lalala is retro stuff à la mode, sounding a bit like Ultra Orange with a half-ska beat, and charming as Julie herself, as my long-time flame J. ensures. And she must know, having been counsel for Julie’s last movie The Countess. Feels like the both of them got along pretty well. For a reason: J. is a control freak, too.
