Le Week-end
Long-married British couple Nick and Meg are revisiting Paris for the first time since their honeymoon in an attempt to rekindle their relationship. Diffident, wistful Nick and demanding, take-charge Meg careen from harmony to disharmony as they take stock of half a lifetime of deep tenderness, and even deeper regret. An invitation from Nick's old friend Morgan, an amusingly eccentric American academic, soon leads them to a hopeful vision of what their marriage might still become.

I was hoping for something like the 'Before Sunrise' series, except with an aging couple. I was disappointed. The story is shallow, and the two main characters are totally unlikeable. Acting was OK but the talent was wasted. It is one of those over-rated films. The scenery of Paris simply could not make up for the time wasted viewing it.

watch it for the dance scene.
Unpredictable little tale about a couple who embody the concept that every marriage is a creature of its own making. I enjoyed some bits and cringed at others. I also marvel at Jeff Goldblum - he's so entertaining, yet always seems to play the same character -himself.

If you like mature man-woman relationship films, this one is for you, far superior than Woody Allen's. The story was serious yet fun ... the poor husband remained hopelessly in love and desperately tried to change the mind of a ready-to-roam wife while vacationing in the city of love.

Don't let the Paris location fool you; this is not a story of rediscovered love.
Instead, it's a sour belch of a story about two whiny, nasty. self-absorbed Boomers.

Good acting, but in the service of a script that has made the characters very inconsistent. No real point to it all.

I'll pass.
Thank you to all these reviewers for the warnings.
The previews looked deceptively promising !

You've saved me 93 minutes of my life !!

I admire Jim Broadbent and always look forward to seeing films he's in, but this one was a disappointment. I think the problem is that the filmmakers tried to make a romantic comedy for boomers, one that has dramatic overtones and depth. The result is a movie about an unhealthy but enduring relationship. It's a bit of a muddle, but the performances are good.

a movie about growing old ungracefully . The elderly might just find this unredeeming towards their sunset years but I guess this usually happens for those whose expectation about life is high armed with wealth and education and totally unsatisfied with their status and basically discontented. If you're old, don't watch it. If you're young, then you'll understand why the olds are grumpy and hard for you to comprehend - See more at: http://burnaby.bibliocommons.com/item/show/880359002#sthash.P3gvMgYy.dpuf

Jim Broadbent and Lyndsay Duncan play an elderly couple who seemed to have been married for too many decades and seem to be disgusted with each other and perhaps even disgusted with themselves. For the first hour or so, they play detestable characters, characters so disgusting that the audience is most likely sick of them. Some viewers may reach the conclusion that their wretchedness makes this a lousy film, but actually the actors are quite amiable in real life and it is only with their great acting abilities that they can seem abhorrent to the audience. At the hour point, one may say that the only thing they hate more than each other is the thought of splitting up and never being accepted by another mate. I don’t know if any of this is correct as I have not read anything about this film. I could be totally wrong. Hey, you can’t be right all the time.

Man: What are you thinking
at this moment?
Meg: The, um, situation
of a woman like me.
Boredom, dissatisfaction ... fury. And the clock ticking by.
Man: What a great thing.
Meg: What?
Man: To be so attuned to your own unhappiness.

Meg: I remembered something from the other day, when I was with a friend. And my phone rang. And, um. I spoke with the person. And at the end of the call, she said,
"Who was that? Was it your secret lover? You sounded so pleased to hear from them, and you kept laughing."
I was astonished. I said, "What do you mean? It was my husband."...it was my husband.
