Two for the Road is a great Hollywood romance picture and it has many fine qualities. About a couple's relationship over a decade's time, the film explores romantic intimacy and coupledom in a way that's unusually frank for an American studio picture. Hepburn & Finney give two charming performances as the couple that's amongst their finest work as performers, they both carry the film on their shoulders. [cont.]
The stages of a relationship shown with lots of charm. From a narrative standpoint it might be a bit muddled, but Hepburn and Finney give the right touch of wit, chemistry, cynicism and joie de vivre for all to be pleased.
If I had to pick only one film - that I've watched countless times and that I would carry with me to the end - as my favorite film of all, it would be "Two For The Road". Sometimes we can't explain why a film resonates with us in some ways more than others... I just love this one.
Una buena película acerca de los altibajos y sinsabores de la vida en pareja. El guión tiene una estructura temporal realmente audaz, que a ratos genera algo de confusión, sin consecuencias graves. Finney y Hepburn tienen química, pero la película, a mi juicio, peca de reiterativa, rizando el rizo infinitamente.
Aside from "Wait Until Dark", this is my favorite Audrey Hepburn film...and I've seen almost all of them! The non-linear storytelling confused me as a kid but when I saw it again as an adult, it made perfect sense.
Two people meet, fall in love then we see the deterioration of their marriage through flashbacks/flashforwards.
The score is also one of the most memorable parts of the movie.
