1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money on this one August 7, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
The setting (paris) the only redeeming quality of this film. Wasn't much fun watching an empty nest couple complain about each other and about married life for an hour and a half. And Jeff goldblum's character was just annoying and didn't fit into the story well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Is a Battlefield May 12, 2014
Format:DVD
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.

(spoilers)

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
Format:DVD
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.

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.

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).

1.0 out of 5 stars Interminable August 25, 2014
Format:DVD
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.

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?
