A must see for couples with fading relationships
1 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

I read some of the other reviews here, and quite a few of these people don't understand the reason for this movie at all.

It is not meant to titillate, amuse, or thrill you. It is a spot on slice of life movie about a couple who love each other, but don't understand why their lives are driving straight into the doldrums. They don't know how to communicate about it, and all they really need to succeed in their relationship is to do just that.

There is a strong object lesson here that if watched and grasped, could save most marriages that fail for similar reasons.

This is not to say that the movie is without charm to entertain, it has plenty. But I didn't give this movie a 9 for its straight entertainment value, I gave it a 9 for its relationship educational value.
