Le Week-End2013

  • 3.7
Academy Award®-winner Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan 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. During a two-day escapade, diffident, wistful Nick and demanding, take-charge Meg careen from harmony to disharmony to resignation and back again as they take stock of half a lifetime of deep tenderness (and even deeper regret). A surprise invitation from Nick's old friend Morgan, an amusingly eccentric American academic with a fancy Parisian address, soon leads them to an unexpectedly hopeful vision of what their love and marriage might still become. This magically buoyant, bittersweet romantic comedy, starring two of Britain's national treasures, is a new peak in the ongoing collaboration between screenwriter Hanif Kureishi and director Roger Michell, following VENUS, THE MOTHER and THE BUDDHA OF SUBURBIA.

I only watched it because of Lindsay Duncan, she looked very attractive in HBo's Rome, and I was curious how she looks today. She still has a special beauty, but the film is totally a failure. not worthy of more words.

This is a surprisingly realistic look at marriage. Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan are exceptional.

Despite a good cast, it lacks something and it's difficult to say what, perhaps because it scores some points along the way; however, they seem to be points we had already earned someplace else.

difficult to delightful

boule puante

surprisingly delightful story line and strong acting - a gem of a movie.

Lindsay Duncan, Lindsay Duncan! Oh, and Jim Broadbent..entertaining and well acted of course. Two masters at work.
