    San Francisco Chronicle

    Gamely tries to capture a vast, twinkling cityscape with not one love story - but 11 little ones, a few of them overlapping. show more

    If you're not a stickler for consistency, this is an effective pastiche and tribute to one of the world's most enticing cities. show more

    What's remarkable here is the consistency of the mediocrity. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    The film is an omnibus ride through Brighton Beach, Central Park, the West Village, and Tribeca. show more

    Anyone who actually adores New York is unlikely to appreciate this disappointingly bland collection of shorts, which might as well have been called "Madrid, Te Amo" or "Cincinnati, You're the Best." show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    Most of these linked "shorts" succeed remarkably in nailing the serendipitous flavor of love, New York-style. show more

    Despite Benhiby's best efforts to create one from many, the only thing the roughly 10-minute segments in New York, I Love You have in common are a general air of indifference. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Look at the cast and credits to form an idea of the directors and actors at work here. By its nature, New York, I Love You can't add up. It remains the sum of its parts. If one isn't working for you, wait a few minutes, here comes another one. New Yorkers, I love you. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    Oddly, the filmmaker best known for his Valentines to New York, Woody Allen, is not participant. show more

    Jennie Punter The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    All of the participating directors – save Balsmeyer and actor Natalie Portman – are known for features. So part of the interest is seeing how the short form puts their strengths, weaknesses, thematic interests or styles into sharp focus. show more

    not as good as its predecessor \"paris je t\'aime\" but worth watching if you have respect for what it takes to make a film (and not only of its style).

    LOVE THIS MOVIE! Parts were a bit slow, but it was awesome how it was about many different people/couples and how they were all connected in some way by the end of the movie. It was beautiful and I highly recommend it

    Wonderful, wonderful movie. I felt immersed in all the various parts of NY through the cleverly told and smooth cinematographic techniques used to present the dozen or so NY tales. Sad and joyful, awe inspiring and comical, the vignettes intertwine the lives of ordinary city dwellers into a moving tour of private and public aspects of NY. They serve to paint a composite view of NY life as influenced by immigrants from many corners of the globe. Highly recommended to all viewers of all lands!

    One of the better movies of the year. Subtle, varied, sophisticated; just like New York. I think that's the point. Great cast.

    My husband and I, former New Yorkers, really liked the movie. The varied stories were thought provoking, and the acting very good. Filming was beautiful. Different and very enjoyable.
