When two different stories are both true! A unique film.
30 March 2003 | by (Berkeley, CA) – See all my reviews

This movie is from my parents' generation, yet it is still interesting to watch now, even in black-and-white. The psychological situations the characters go through are common to many families.

What is great about this film is its two parts - two sides of the same story. The first is through the husband's eyes, and the second one is through the wife's. Some episodes are found only in one part, for example, the husband didn't know the temptations his wife resisted when a rich businessman and other men were pursuing her. Most episodes are the same in both parts, except different events happen in them, depending on the two people's perceptions. That's what I loved the most - the spouses or the script can't lie to viewers, but the events are different between the two parts of the movie. I still wonder who actually left the room first and slammed the door when they broke apart. :) He remembers that she did, and she remembers that he did...

The first part to watch is his story, then her story because the latter elaborates on the final outcome, which his part made quite brief. I also think this is the order the film is supposed to be. I've watched it this way as a single film, and the English titles in IMDB are numbered correctly.

I hope to find this film in the U.S., as I watched it on cable TV in Ukraine in 2000.
