Movie Info

What do women think about when they think about love? Filmmaker Ken Wardrop ponders this question as he lets a number of different woman talk about their romantic lives in this documentary. Wardrop traveled to his home town in the Irish Midlands and spoke with seventy women (many of whom are members of his family) as they share stories about their husbands, boyfriends and other men they'd known over the course of their lives. Some are young girls still in the midst of their first schoolyard crush, while others are elderly enough to know they're looking from a perspective of their final years; their thoughts about the opposite sex are fresh, often funny, frequently moving and point at once to the differences and commonalities of his subjects. His & Hers was the first feature-length documentary from director Wardrop, and received its world premiere at the 2009 BFI London Film Festival.

You would need to be made of stone not to be charmed by the wit and warmth of these women.

Time Out
Top Critic

It's around the birthing years that Wardrop's extremely selective homemaker's oral history-crafted to soothe with its placid framing and cheery, meditative tone-begins to close around you like doily-papered walls.

Top Critic

It's more of an elegant cinematic tone poem than a documentary, and it's both affecting and limited.

Guardian

[K]eeps things deceptively simple, just letting the women talk without introduction or context, and yet creating, in the process, a portrait of an archetypal life of the modern woman...

Flick Filosopher

Sparky and cheerful if condescending and weirdly infantilising.

March 10, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

No great surprises in the early segments, but the intensity grows as the shadows of age and illness fall. Even the blokes will be sniffling into their popcorn.
