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.

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).

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.

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.

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?
