    A young wife in a stagnant marriage is excited by the possibility of romance with a stranger. Sarah Polley delivers a capable tale, told in warm colors and cool music, of awakening, forbidden love, if w/o anything truly different to bring to the table. Michelle Williams carries the thing almost solely with the use of her big eyes, although the rest of the cast is competent enough. Seth Rogan is good, too, and nowhere near as annoying as he usually is.

    Although some of the material covered in this film may be getting old, seeing it done so well through Canadian hands is terrific. Directed by Sarah Polley and shot entirely in Toronto, "Take This Waltz" is a well told unconventional love story that takes many turns for the worse. There truly are some incredible moments in this film, from the masterful camerawork in some key scenes that you will not see coming. The cast is fantastic, the script is well-written, and it is superbly directed by a someone who is a well-known indie actress. My biggest complaint is that there are so many moments when you feel like you should be smiling, but after seeing previous scenes, you feeling you'd be tricking yourself to smile. It's not the best romance I've ever seen, but it is sure a great one! "Take This Waltz" is definitely worth your time.

    See, this is why comedians shouldn't be allowed in a serious movie! Very slow moving--nothing in the first ten minutes made any sense whatsoever. You mean this hot guy lives across the street from the lead and SHE NEVER NOTICED until they share a cab from the airport? The repartee Lou and Margot have in bed is so unbelievable--"I love you so much I want to inject your face with ebola and aids"--is so Seth Rogen, and I actually think he's funny, but not here please.
