I'd give it 3.5 stars but that's not possible (yet).
The quality was great but felt somewhat inconsistent throughout the film.
Dialogue and acting in most scenes was excellent and felt entirely natural, pleasantly spontaneous even.
Some minor flaws but those are just quirks of mine really.
Liked it, and would recommend!
Ambitious - with apparent nods to 'Bicycle Thieves' - 'The End of Love' is a little uneven, yet intelligent and touching too. Using (presumably) unscripted conversations between a father and his young son smartly creates the film's emotional core, and the movie is at its best in these moments. Well-known actors playing themselves is another clever touch in the context of the story (if somewhat distracting).
