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.Read more ›
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.
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.
