Old age isn't fashionable. There are few if any opportunities for "overcoming adversity" or even for some CGI. On Golden Pond was a rare success in this genre; the rest are usually stupid movies like Grumpy Old Men that have nothing to say, and say it tritely.

Le Week-End is completely different. I've never seen a film that so deftly and subtly examines the results of spending half a lifetime with another person in a matrimonial relationship. There are disappointments, betrayals large and tiny, the irritation at old annoying habits, and also, astonishingly, moments of hope and tenderness. This is a very real movie, not a banal "character arc in seven scenes" movie-by-numbers. It is uncomfortable, moving, and painful to watch at times. Although there are moments of humor this is a comedy only in the Shakespearean sense that it's not a drama or a tragedy. So if you're looking for something for date night or to lighten the mood after a hard day at work this is not something you should choose. But if you want a serious and truly moving exploration of the frailties and foibles of a married couple who like us all have their ups, downs and sideways moments and somehow still find it better (just) to remain together than to part, this is a brilliant little gem of a movie with outstanding performances all around. Even the camera work is perfect - not seduced by Paris but rather showing us Paris through the eyes of the couple, warts and all. And the direction is likewise deft.

Interminable. The entire time. If you like spending a lot of time with people who are miserable, and miserable to be with, this is the movie for you -- complete with a wrap it all up fakey ending.

I like the stars in many other things, but they were better than the material here. I literally had to advance playback to double-speed just to FORCE myself to get through this and finish it.

This literally sucked any energy and joy I had out of me, and if it weren't for seeing a bit of Paris it would have no value at all.

Excellent Film. Although uneven at times, it gives a realistic picture of a middle-age marriage, with all the hopes and disappointments that are still there. Despite the aging skin, they are all (including the Jeff Goldblum character) still wanting to be loved, like the teenagers that they are inside. The difference between Jeff Goldblum's character and that of the married couple is that the married couple sees beyond the momentary glitter of a younger wife (or in the case of Lindsay Duncan's character, a younger male lover). Life, a long-term marriage, getting older, getting sacked for being politically incorrect, and the like are hard, but it is those who weather it together, despite whatever warts and disappointments that they may have, who win in the end. So let us all dance, for the dance is the thing, in the end. It's imperfect, but you might as well enjoy that dance while you are here (or there in Paris, as the case may be).

An utter waste of an hour and a half. Watching two empty nesters whine and complain about each other was just a bore. But oh what lovely people they are: they dine at exclusive restaurants and then sneak out without paying their bill (ooh, such FUN!) and then stay in luxury suites that they also can't afford and again leave without paying and then the hubby sits down with his old college buddies son to get high! What class! Then again, what can we expect to see produced from people whose lives are no less stellar?

I did not like this movie. The characters were not likable, the storyline was unbelievable and the ending left you hanging.
The best part of the movie was that it took place in Paris but even then, you did not get to see any of the beautiful scenery.
I would definitely not recommend this movie. Don't waste your time.

A depressing snapshot of a couple eating the fruits of 30 years of bad decisions. My take on the movie is that it's a tame version of Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolff?. We meet them bickering their way through the trip from Birmingham to Paris: he planned this trip as a last-ditch attempt to save their marriage, but she makes it clear she's simply humoring him. Through the next 90 minutes, we learn that he adores her and will do anything for her, but she is exquisitely and exclusively attuned to her own misery and is intent on leaving him. We learn with her that he lost his job months ago, but couldn't find a way to tell her. She then decides to quit her job so she can learn to tango. Their son is living a failed life. They eat expensive meals and then giggle through escapes to avoid paying. She refused to stay in the modest hotel room he had reserved for them. We see by the end that they ran up a bill they can never pay by staying in a Presidential Suite, fail in their attempt to escape it and are faced with bankruptcy and the loss of their passports. The movie leaves them choosing a tune in a juke box in a Paris Bistro, then getting up and doing a soft-shoe shuffle to it, along with an old friend they hope will bail them out - a grace they would not extend to their own son. No violence, no car chases, no gratuitous sex - just depressing self-absorption. View at your own risk.
