IMF exists to support colonial system of West, Gérard Depardieu should not be help them to get away

IMF exists in order to not to change the colonial system of the West.To protect the colonial system, continue stealing in every way. Proof of this is that rapid destruction of countries where IMF gives credit. If countries somehow paid their depts and as soon as they get rid of IMF,we all get used to watch their rapid growth. Then West's legal burglars use their power continue to pull down their economies with international credit rating agencies like Standard & Poor's, Moody's,Fitch. And surely they do not allow other countries to establish similar institutions in spite of their wellknown proved mistakes. This film focused only on a thing above the iceberg. They should also ask correct questions like, Why now? After being nominated to the presidency, the chief of IMF allowed to be on trial in this way. It would be more realistic to investigate who did this and why. Since Devereaux wellknown by his similar acts and he is sure he can get away with it as used to be. Suddenly NYC started to do something about it as someone let them. And of course Who let them we don't know as much as we don't know why he get away with previous similar cases. Someone wonders why Gérard Depardieu except to play in such a movie after all. Depardieu should not be help them to get away with all of it.

Long, Uneven, Inconclusive

In New York, the French director of the World Bank Mr. Devereaux (Gérard Depardieu) is a pervert and womanizer, partying and participating in gang bangs with women. When he tries to rape the hotel housekeeper in his room, the woman reports to the police. Devereaux is arrested, affecting also the life of his wife Simone (Jacqueline Bisset).

"Welcome to New York", by Abel Ferrara, is a long, uneven and inconclusive film based on the New York v. Strauss-Kahn case. The story shows the lead character Devereaux as an egocentric, pervert and sick womanizer through excessive sex scenes and his relationship with his daughter and wife. When he is released in house arrest, the screenplay is developed at a very slow pace and is boring. However the lack of conclusion is terrible. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Bem-Vindo a Nova York" ("Welcome to New York")

Not the best Depardieu, but watchable...

I was pleased when this film became available on Netflix and then on DVD, because I am an unconditional fan of Gérard Depardieu even though he is no longer the healthy-looking star he used to be, and also because I was convinced from day one that DSK had fallen into a trap set by his political enemies. Only two people know exactly what happened that day in his hotel room, so this is indeed a fictional version, but when Depardieu's character tells his wife that he is not guilty as accused, I for one believe him. It's watchable, and almost philosophical when he talks to his very rich wife about the sharing of wealth. And if anyone is disappointed by Depardieu's performance in this movie, I recommend director Jean Becker's delightful film "La Tête en friche" (My Afternoons with Margueritte) in which Depardieu is brilliant. Jacqueline Bisset's performance here is remarkable too.
