Did You Know?

The director Allan King lived with the Edwards family before, during and after the course of filming. He chose them not out of proximity, though, but because they had the most personality out of all the other married candidates.See more »

A Married Couple (1969), 10 January 2012
Author: Martin Teller from Portland OR

Like a documentary version of SCENES FROM A MARRIAGE, this is a stunning portrait of a couple falling to pieces. Billy and Antoinette allow King and his cameraman into some of the most private moments of their lives. The usual questions arise about how much the participants are putting on a show for the camera (they'd have to have some exhibitionist qualities to even agree to this) and apparently some of it is not in chronological sequence, but ultimately I feel that what we're getting is real, even if perhaps slightly heightened. The fact is that their arguments often greatly resemble ones I've had with my wife, which perhaps doesn't bode well for my own marriage (I love ya, honey!) but it definitely has the sting of truth to it. Ridiculously small disagreements become massive battles under the weight of buried, and not-so-buried, resentment. Which is not to stay that it's always war in the Edwards household... they have their tender moments. But perhaps some relationships cannot be salvaged. A very intense, gripping film that drew me in completely.
