The most beautiful film about being married, staying married and loving it and hating it all the way.
4 April 2003 | by (Los Angeles, Ca.) – See all my reviews

An exquisite film about the complexities of love and marriage and all

that in brings, Two for the Road also boasts the best film of Audrey

Hepburn's brilliant career -- and certainly the best of Stanley Donen's.

Even by todays standards, the film hold its own and surpasses the

superficial garbage Hollywood cranks out on a daily basis. Maybe Matthew

MacConnaughey, Sandra Bullock, Meg Ryan, Hugh Grant, Julia Roberts,

Ashton Kucher, Brittney Murphy, Nia Vardolos, John Corbett, and all the

directors that try this genre... Adam Shankman, in particular should be

tied to a chair and forced to watch this film. But, maybe, that's a bad

idea because from what they turn out, they wouldn't get it anyway.

They'd probably find it too dated.

This film has more soul in one frame than anything these artists will

churn out in their lifetimes. Hopefully 20th Century Fox will release

this on DVD for the world to see and experience with the wonder of

digital restoration and stereo sound. The score by Henry Mancini is one

of his best. For the true romantics, this film is a must. ......
