A man and woman meet by chance at a romantic inn over dinner. Although both are married to others, they find themselves in the same bed the next morning questioning how this could have happened. They agree to meet on the same weekend each year. Originally a stage play, the two are seen changing, years apart, always in the same room in different scenes. Each of them always appears on schedule, but as time goes on each has some personal crisis that the other helps them through, often without both of them understanding what is going on. Written by

This film is a great tale of the 50s,60s and 70s. It is another in the films which have made a wonderful transition from Broadway to Hollywood. It is undoubtedly schmaltzy. But Alda and Burstyn make up for any sentimentality with star performances. I have heard it called a chick flick, but here is one guy who believes it is a simply absorbing comedy/romance. Hand me a hankie and let me see it again!
