Editorial Reviews

Academy Award winner Jim Broadbent (IRIS, TOPSY-TURVY, ANOTHER YEAR) and Lindsay Duncan (ABOUT TIME, ALICE IN WONDERLAND, MANSFIELD PARK) give exquisite performances as Nick and Meg, a long-married British couple revisiting Paris for the first time since their honeymoon in an attempt to rekindle their relationship.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoy the dance, for the dance is the thing ... July 9, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
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).

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Is a Battlefield May 12, 2014
When I saw the trailers for Le Week-End, it appeared to be an affectionate and playful romp in Paris between a middle-aged husband and wife celebrating their anniversary. Scenes like skipping out of an expensive restaurant without paying the bill and meeting an old friend named Morgan (played by Jeff Goldblum) where fairly light hearted. The film is actually a more serious examination of a 30 year old marriage. Nick (Jim Broadbent) and Meg (Lindsay Duncan) are a modest, slightly frumpy couple. Nick remarks in the film that you can’t love and hate the same person but ha and Lindsay are in a world inhabited by disappointment and the drudgery of living together (we learn that Meg has had an affair in the past). They have two sons who prey upon the good nature of Nick whenever they want money.


The trip to Paris is meant to awaken the passions of the past but from the start there are disappointments. The Montmartre hotel where they spent their honeymoon has turned into a non-descript and slightly seedy. Meg checks them into a far grander hotel near the Seine with views of the Eiffel Tower. Nick and Meg set out to visit Paris but there is an undercurrent of dissatisfaction. When Nick tries to get affectionate with Meg, she rebuffs him, forcing him on his knees. Meg complains about Nick’s need for stability and appears that she would rather free herself from him permanently.

The climax of the film comes when they are invited to the Rue d Rivoli apartment of Morgan, who was at college with Nick and looks up to him as a mentor. Morgan has divorced his wife, married a young and dotting woman who is pregnant and has a book coming out. He appears to be the epitome of success. That is, until Nick has talk with Morgan’s young son from his first marriage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Michell & Kureishi Deliver Again July 9, 2014
By M Twain
Broadbent, Duncan and Goldblum all do terrific turns in this bracing comedy about growing old and looking back. Great dialogue by the brilliant Hanif Kureishi (My Beautiful Launderette, Sammy and Rosie Get Laid, Buddha of Suburbia). Michell and Kureishi have worked together before to great effect and I'd urge you to see Venus with Peter O'Toole, also their Buddha of Suburbia. Wonderful jazz soundtrack, and Paris has never looked more ethereal. Excellent film. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Second Chances September 12, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
A train, where we observe people, and finally to an older couple, the woman reading, the man acting anxious, touching his pockets to make sure the Euros and their travel plans are all set. Our introduction to Lindsay Duncan as Meg Burrows and Jim Broadbent as Nick Burrows. They are on their way to Paris for an anniversary weekend.

We find out soon enough that in this 30 year marriage, all is not well. They end up at an hotel where they once stayed 30 years ago, and Meg refuses to stay. Off they go in a taxi looking at the sights of Paris and end up in a very expensive hotel suite. This is a weekend to rev up their marriage, and it sounds like they need something. Nick mentions that Meg has not been available for love making for 5-10 years. Meg is cruel and downright nasty to him. They do have some fun, but it is not until an old college friend of Nick's runs into them. Morgan played by Jeff Goldblum is a well to do artist living with his new, pregnant wife. He invites them for dinner.

Now, things go downhill and then uphill again. Nick and Meg have things to say, and they do. This is a fine film of an older marriage, and the actors are superb. Usually Jim Broadbent plays a feeble older man. In this film he is in fine form, a welcome nuance. Lindsay Duncan is a joy. I have watched her in the new TV series, 'The Honorable Woman', a small part, but she is recognizable and unforgettable. Jeff Goldblum is perfect in this part. All in all, a film many married when revel in.

3.0 out of 5 stars If you'd like to be depressed, watch this... August 20, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This was a well acted but disturbing and sad film. Here is a couple, who clearly are on the brink of retirement, and the husband has arranged an anniversary in Paris to "rekindle" romance. But his wife is furious at him (won't give it away) and he hasn't told her he's lost his job, so when the run-down hotel isn't to her liking, she walks out, gets in a cab and almost leaves him holding the bags... He runs after her and this dysfunctional couple go downhill from this point on, including her checking into a suite in a top rated hotel they clearly cannot afford. He just tags along helplessly.

Clearly whomever directed this has a dismal view of life over 60. And although the story kept our interest, I wanted to step in and get these two to really talk. Their pain was palpable and their feeble attempts to talk (usually to someone else about their pain) were just annoying. It would have been far better to see them work through the pain and really hear each other.
