"Seldom has a movie split opinion so srongly.-- 5 stars or 1 star?
I have been following readers reviews with great interest having written the first to appear in Time Out without seeing the movie.
The 1 star reviews almost put me off but what a delight to find that for me this was a 5 star movie.
I respectfully suggest that to enjoy this movie you have to be ready to be confronted with your own unloving responses to those you love.
This movie show brilliantly how over time romantic loving affection gradually transforms into companionability mixed up with hateful rejections of the beloveds incompatabilities with ones own values and preferences.
This transformation from the romantic hopes and desires of lovers to the married state with its endless repeated complaints about the other whether in thoughts or expressed in angry words is compressed into the space of a single Sunday surounded by beauty.
My response to this display of my own absurdities in relationship to those I love was to laugh with delight after the intial shock.
See it, you will either love this movie or hate it, there are no 3 star reviews!"
