Small film, mean story

Beuh, lots of cigarettes. The film is slow going. We are left to think what makes these two in such bad mood. I was thinking they killed a kid but it was sort of the contrary. The woman, not too bright, follows her dark path for a solution. Lucky the man stopped her. This film seemed familiar to me, like a remake. I recall a woman getting a married guy easily. Not sure it flies in real life, unless they are psychopaths of course. People were that crazy in the 70s.

Angelina Jolie, the artistic filmmaker

In the 70's, writer Roland (Brad Pitt) and former dancer Vanessa (Angelina Jolie) are in a tired marriage. They hope to rekindle their relationship and his writing in a small seaside town in the south of France. She finds a peep hole and obsesses over their next door neighbor especially Léa (Mélanie Laurent).

Angelina Jolie continues to try to be a real filmmaker. She seems competent as a director. I don't see any outstanding style but her work is functional. The acting is tired although that's their characters. Her depression needs to be over-dramatized. When depression is depressed, it's depressing to watch. That's mostly in the writing and I don't think Jolie is a good writer. She may have fair concepts but her dialogue does not sing. The flow is stuck in mud. The plot could have gone somewhere compelling. She needs to collaborate with a better writer who could help her work. This has potential but Jolie lacks the skills to exploit.

Disappointed

The film is about a couple going through the doldrums of their marriage. Actually, lower than the doldrums.

The main characters are unredeeming. The supporting cast is OK, if somewhat wooden. For the most part - the film is about the disintegrated relationship between the two main character, the writer husband and his (former) dancer wife. Actually - that's the only thing this film is about.

While there is improvement in their relationship over the period of the movie - it isn't a dramatic change.

I can't help but wonder if this film was shot in order to give the stars somewhat of a working vacation in France. Also - the gist of the film somewhat mirrors the frustrations going on in the marriage of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie at the time.

Thankfully we borrowed this title from our local library. I would have been disappointed in myself had I have paid to rent or purchase it.
