Le Week-End (2013) England

A story of a long married English couple.

Comedy | Drama

     A simplest movie, which tells the story of an old couple from Birmingham who decides to celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary in Paris. Like all the married couples these two as well not exceptional for facing all the ups and downs during their life together. So this story spells some of their tragic and happy moments of past and present.

     Nicely written script, it was very plain and narrow. Everything in the movie was kept uncomplicated including portrayal of characters. Jeff Goldblum's cameo was added more flavour to the movie. His entry was at the right time to spice up the momentum.

     The adventurous mischief of the two couples in the city of love was the movie's fun parts. Apart from that, uncompromising dialogue between them briefs their relationship difficulties. One more movie to add to the list where the old guys rule. It is based on a precious subject, kinda rare in today's cinema.

     A delightful movie to watch. Began with a normal pace, then later geared up till the end. With a minimum cast the movie did not cost much, but there is no compromise in quality. Very much more enjoyable which deals with a sensitive issue of a long married couple. It is a good pick for the family audience to watch on weekends.
