"Together in heaven." Good one to split a bottle of wine with your loved one to. Starts as a seedy romantic comedy and gets pulled down by the bottle, devolving into a drunk drama. Nice and dirty. Great hair, acting and direction. The first half of the script is a bit clunky. Wish there were more movies that dealt with personal problems in relationships in this way... "I want things to look prettier than they are."
La historia empieza como una anécdota y le sigue un romance. Lo que se espera es pues una de esas historias de amor apropiadas por dos personajes carismáticos aunque también melancólicos. Lo último persevera, pero lo resto se va diluyendo. "Días de vino..." es el relato sobre un matrimonio degradándose por un vicio, uno que nació con esa misma anécdota y fue avanzando paso lento y seguro. Un filme real y destructor.
Very impressed with Jack Lemmon, especially since this film is the first time I've seen him in a serious role. Both he and Remick had captivating performances, although occasionally comedic. I was slightly surprised the ending happened the way it did, which was nonetheless heartbreaking.
3 1/2 out of 5 stars. Amazing acting and filmmaking but a seriously tough watch. For as amazing as Jack Lemmon's performance (Remick's, too) was, I kept thinking of his role of Baxter from The Apartment in a dark timeline. I couldn't get through the entire thing in one sitting but it was worth it. Amazing ending, too.
Majestic! The acting is simply sublime. The cinematography involves a marvelous play of light/shadows throughout, defining the film together with a notably harmonious relationship between the pace, mood and atmosphere of the film, creating all in all an intense experience that gives the necessary depth and power to an already masterfully-written script. The ending left me speechless...
