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

The film's source play was a two-hander featuring only two actors. This movie version expands the cast list to seven, but the other five characters are all minor parts, none of them supporting roles. See more »

I accidentally stumbled across this movie on Slovenian TV a couple of years ago and could not stop watching. The idea is so simple, yet so original, and Alan Alda is just hilarious, as always. It is interesting how the decades and history reflect on main characters, as well as their own maturing and growing old process. A must see! It really is much more than your typical romantic comedy.
