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.
As in "The Bad And The Beautiful," the musical score of "Two For The Road" is a crucial component. It adds layers to scenes and makes them appear more deeply felt. Both films have serious flaws (in this case, Finney's boorish performance and the over-scaled performances of Bron, Daniels and their daughter), however, in the end, the haunting music floods the holes and fills them in.
