Two for the Road Reviews
September 3, 2014
Once you adjust to the French New Wave-styled nonlinear narrative and jump cuts, you're left with a sobering look at an unhealthy relationship between two free spirits.

Yet another stellar piece from Audrey Hepburn. This might be the best use of non-linear storytelling I've seen, including any of Tarantino's work, The Killing and Annie Hall. It just worked so well between the two characters, making the whole thing flow incredibly smoothly. Some movies aren't remembered through time and don't deserve it, and this is a prime example of it.

The film chronicles several journeys in a couple's relationship.
While the performances by Albert Finney and Audrey Hepburn are often delightful, the film's primary problem is its unevenness. It's occasionally hard to follow, and the mix of happy times and marital discord never quite finds its proper balance.
Overall, there are parts of this film that are fun, but the film as a whole lacks cohesiveness.

Between 2.5 and 3. It has an intelligent sense of humour and a very good combination of the overlaping stories and shots, although the main plot -maybe because of the issue- does not captivate me completely.

Fantastic. Feels effortless. Sums up everything romantic comedies are missing now.

I love this film more and more every year that passes.

Not bad, but all the jumping between time and place was rather confusing. My dad would have lost the clue completely. Audrey.... how skinny can a woman be? And Albert Finney, actually only ever seen him previously as an old crumpy man. Refreshing!

An au courant account -by the swinging sixties' standards- of a relationship and the institution of marriage, shown through all its stages with lots of charm. From a narrative standpoint it might be a bit muddled, but Hepburn and Finney give the right touch of wit, chemistry, cynicism and joie de vivre for all to be pleased.

Two For The Road is a superb romance film that unlike most, takes a great deal of time to examine the relationship between the two main characters over the course of more than a decade in the good times and bad times. It covers several points of their relationship ranging from the actual dating, to marriage, to becoming parents, infidelities, and much more. It's funny, emotional, and very entertaining. I'd say it is definitely among the greatest romance films I've ever seen. It's a beautiful and compelling film that deserves more attention.

An interestingly directed movie that goes through a timeline of highs and lows of a married couple. A different very role for audrey then id previously seen from her.

Insightful romantic comedy that is well scripted and features wonderful perfornces from both Audrey Hepburn amd Albert Finney.

Everyone should see this film if you're a fan of Audrey Hepburn or Albert Finney.
It was Henry Mancini's favorite score. Writing by Frederic Raphael (he wrote DARLING) is smart, funny, sarcastic, bittersweet...and ultimately romantic. And you've never seen Audrey Hepburn like this. Make sure you see the widescreen version. And as the film shifts in time tracking their relationship over 12 years, you need to pay attention. No talking or texting!! But it is well worth the effort.

Would like to get round to seeing!

Needs to be a little shorter. I want to go back in time and make Audrey Hepburn love me.

May be disjointed for some, but there are very mature and thoughtful themes examined about difficulties and choices in marriage. Has moments of powerful emotion, light-hearted fun, despair, hope, and the uncertain future together.
