Joanna and her architect husband, Mark Wallace have been married for a decade, and their relationship's become very rocky. As they drive from their London home to St. Tropez for the unveiling of a house Mark has designed for his clients, Maurice and Francoise Dalbret, they recall the events - both happy and sad, which neither then to this point. Told in flashback they pair recall their first meeting, and memorable moments in their courtship and early wedded life, as well as the tensions they both felt which led them each to extramarital affairs. With a terrific score by Henry Mancini, this welli-loved Stanley Donnen film's a sparkling effervescent story which deals in an atypical way for films of this time - showing both the joyousness and pathos off love.

HOW was this movie nominated for a Best Writing Oscar????

This movie has two charming lead actors and some pretty scenery. Other than that, it has about the worst script and supporting roles of any movie I have ever suffered through. HOW was this movie nominated for a Best Writing Oscar???? The dialogues are not even vaguely clever.

And, equally confounding to me, WHO went to the theater and actually paid to see this movie??? It's not funny, it's not really romantic. And it is certainly very aggravating, especially when we have to deal with the second couple.

This movie confounds me, but not in any interesting way.

All the Right Ingredients But...

While Albert Finney and Audrey Hepburn produced magical chemistry here in spite of the shoddy material that was handed to them, while the Mancini score was very memorable, and while the scenery of southern France was breathtaking, I found myself becoming very tired of the monotonous dialogue after the first hour or so. Having been married for 27 years, I understand at least a little bit of what the writers and director were trying to express, but an hour of this was more than enough for me to endure.

The segment with William Daniels, Eleanor Bron, and their spoiled brat of a child might have been too realistic for me and became more annoying than entertaining. I have known too many disagreeable drips like Cathy and Howard Manchester in real life, and the very thought of enduring a long road trip with them actually made me instantly carsick. Why would Joanna and Mark agree to do that in the first place? If a reason were given, I must have nodded off at that point. The role of Maurice (Claude Dauphine) as Mark's constantly invasive boss also became very nauseating to me and seemed unrealistic. How could these architects be so successful when they designed a house with a fundamentally flawed electrical system? Was there a subtle message there about the shaky basis of Mark's supposedly successful career? "Mark, can I speak to you for ten minutes?" Oh shut up, Maurice. Less talking and more effective planning, please. And what exactly did Joanna see in David? To me, he was just another stiff who only helped to weigh the movie down even more.

While the major components of the whole, especially the lovely presence and strong performance of Audrey Hepburn, should have produced an outstanding overall result, this just fell flat for me. The trip started out smooth, but I found myself getting very road weary in the middle and looking for the nearest Best Western where I could take a good nap.

Two pieces, One heart

If you're a fan of classic movies or fashion then you know Audrey Hepburn. Her style is iconic. The characters she crafted for film are iconic. She, as an actress, humanitarian and human being is iconic. But perhaps you don't know this film of hers.

Two For The Road takes you down that road where you get to spend your life with the one person you will love until you die. It gives you the 'happily ever after' everyone dreams of, and shows you how that 'happily' maybe isn't always so and that 'ever after' can be a long drudge til death, but it also shows you every little thing that fools you into thinking it's worth it. Our characters go through all the stages of every relationship but what's more they experience it. They don't let it just pass them by, building up to the inevitable conclusion of separation. They analyze, they endure, they work harder.

Hepburn is perhaps at the best she's ever been. This role called for her to be airy and light, young and in love yet it also needed her to be jaded and wizened. She must bounce between ingénue and battle axe and she does so masterfully, never showing contempt for the work or the man that she loves. Finney is right up there with her. He matches her blow for blow as he passively judges and sneers at his wife one minute, then dotes on his new bride the next.

The screenplay called for nuance and integrity. It called for heartache, heartbreak, loyalty and betrayal. But most importantly it called for determination. Hepburn and Finney show us all of the ups and downs of a relationship and just how worth it they feel it is. You can see how the negative aspects of love wear and tear at their heartstrings and win a few battles but the war is ongoing and they are determined to win. They show us all that love and the perfect relationship is not handed to you on a silver platter, but earned through the hard work you put into it year after year. 9/10
