Great movie. Perfect pace for the subject matter. And great, natural acting.

I have actually studied movie direction during my college years. Kindly clear your mind before reading this review and do not buy a single word of those wannabe critics trashing the film for random reasons they'd pulled out of you-know-where. The film has a great, beautifully evolving story. It handles its own subject matter beautifully and in a relevant way. Angelina and Brad act exactly as if it were happening in real life. Scenery is beautiful. Melanie Laurent does great. But most of all, I'd like to praise Angelina for picking such simple but great camera angles and not trying to overdo it, or over-elaborate the direction. The bartender/owner in the movie also did a great job.

Afterall, smarta**es will always say it had been done before unless it's a superhero movie based on their favorite comic books. Life has been done before, idiots. Movies about reality and subject matter like this should be judged on the accuracy and beauty of their portrayal of it, not on whether they break some new grounds by discovering a magical new aspect of reality. Great movie. Watch alone or with your loved ones. Pick a calm and cool type of night. Acting: 10/10 (for realism), Direction 9/10, Scenery 10/10, Casting 9/10 and Editing 8/10. A 9/10 movie for supreme realism.

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.
