SEX IN NEW YORK: MORE THAN 80 GARMENTS
The origin of the movie “Sex in New York”, released recently in Spain, is the American series that was expressed in the chain HBO from 1998 until 2004. The series was counting the history of four single women who were patrolling the forties and who were living obsessed with the fashion, the love and the sex. The acidic tone was put by the narrator, a journalist with a weekly column on the sexual customs of the neoyorkinos. While some saw in the series an avant-garde look on the femininity and rompedora of taboos, others were criticizing precisely the painful image of a woman removed from the reality and "thrown enough", although it was dressing of mark.
Four years later Michael Patrick King, one of the scriptwriters and the director of several chapters, directs and produces the movie based on the series. The tape inherits from the series the leading role of the fashion - more than 80 garments for Sarah Jessica Parker - the compulsive consumerism, a frivolity that stands out for his respects, and a high sexual voltage - more measured that in the series but the same way coarse - in conversations and scenes.
The protagonists keep on being equal of hysterics, but there is something showy: what in the series was a portrait of four is devoured by it men, been delighted of his liberal lacking in commitment, it ends up by being in the movie a praise to the close family, to the maternity and to the loyalty. What stays, in the middle of an insulting superficiality, is simple: four women who, although they speak about sex, need other things … and not precisely a few "manolos". Small discovery.
