It ends where the story begins at an Italian seaside resort as the couple happily swim off together into the sunset at their first encounter.

Deconstructing the breakup of a romance in reverse chronological order is no longer original; Pinter has done it in "Betrayal."

Ozon has a studied, contemplative style at work here.

Peeling off the emotional layers one by one, François Ozon's 5 X 2 reveals intimate snapshots of a relationship, simply but searingly.

(...) Es de esas películas que vale quizá más por las reflexiones y debates que dispara entre las personas que como pieza cinematográfica en sí misma.

The soulful Bruni-Tedeschi gives the impression that her beautiful face is bruised, even though it is blemish free; it's one of the best performances of the year.

Doesn't feel like a gimmick at all. It feels like a natural introduction to the characters.

Bruni-Tedeschi and Freiss give solid performances, though, and their physical transformations over time (a slight weight gain for her, facial hair for him) are convincing.

Tedeschi delivers a radiant, multifaceted performance, and both leads eerily appear to get younger as the film heads into the past.

Ozon, as he's shown in his many recent films (particularly Under the Sand), knows a thing or two about love and loss; 5x2 achingly demonstrates both.

Unwinds with absolute clarity and sure style, and Freiss and Bruni-Tedeschi make an interesting couple, if not a truly memorable one.

It's fascinating, like watching the collapse of a building in reverse.

The film is Bergman's Scenes From a Marriage without the boring parts -- wait, I'm not supposed to say that.
June 24, 2005
The inevitability of the conceit could wear on us, were it not for the lived-in performances of the cast, most important Bruni-Tedeschi and Freiss.

You can get an idea of the two seemingly contradictory truths about this movie: It's not much fun, and it's impossible to stop watching.

Clever and fascinating, but it's ultimately a downer.
