Le Week-End (2013)

IMDb plot summary: A British couple return to Paris many years after their honeymoon there in an attempt to rejuvenate their marriage.
Directed by Roger Mitchell. Starring Lindsay Duncan, Jim Broadbent, and Jeff Goldblum.

There's... something to this movie. It's simultaneously charming and heartbreaking, funny and sad, awkward and completely natural. The acting is stupendous, particularly from Jim Broadbent, and the final climax is, if a little abrupt, very moving. I feel like this is a movie that just a mention of will always fill my heart with the sort of wistful sadness I felt while watching it.

3.5 stars.

Flickchart: #707 out of 2256, below Days of Wine and Roses and above Beyond the Sea.
