Two For The Road. Feature film. (1967, 111 mins) IMDB
hat can I say? Audrey Hepburn. Albert Finney. Stanley Donen. Henry Mancini. Maurice Binder.
The film is a mature look at love, marriage--falling in love, out of love, back in love. The challenges of marriage when careers and children get in the way. It's also a film told in an unusual way. It's completely non-linear. We see a young Mark and Joa28a as they fall in love, later as they bicker on summer vacations in France. The film switches back and forth between these different times and yet it's still structured with three-acts.
I think it's impossible to not like Audrey Hepburn. Her involvement in this film isn't the reason it's a great film, but I can't imagine it with anyone but her in it.
