Storyline

Married early thirty-somethings Joanna and Mark Wallace are making the three day drive from their home in London to St. Tropez for the unveiling of the lavish house Mark, a successful architect, designed for his wealthy clients, Maurice and Francoise Dalbret. Joanna and Mark are at a rough stage of their relationship, much of their conversation along the way centered on the possibility of divorce to end the farce they now consider their marriage. The macro ups and downs of their marriage are presented in previous road trips they took together in France, with each trip having its own micro ups and downs. The first was twelve years earlier when they met, he backpacking through the country, she traveling to a music festival with her all-girl singing group, with they ending up together purely by circumstance instead of Mark hooking up with Joanna's colleague, Jackie. The second was an impromptu trip which was supposed to be throughout the continent with Mark's ex-girlfriend, the former ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

Average Shot Length = ~4.5 seconds. Median Shot Length = ~4.4 seconds. Both values are quite fast, and demonstrate the experimentation with faster cutting rates during the mid to late 1960s. For example, even a noted fast cutter like Sam Peckinpah would take until 1969 to produce a film (The Wild Bunch (1969)) that is cut faster than Two for the Road (1967). See more »

Goofs

When Mark and Joanna are riding away in the concrete pipe, you can clearly see that the truck carrying them has a large set of wheels as the furthest back portion of the truck, which would make it difficult for them to just jump out. But when they cut to the scene where they are jumping out, the large set of wheels is gone. See more »

It's 2005 and "Two For The Road" is STILL not out on DVD
26 March 2005 | by elena-48See all my reviews

Am I the only one who wants this movie to be cleaned up and put on DVD but pronto!? The last time I rented this at Blockbuster the copy was so bad it was like watching it through a dirty window.

What a shame that such a carefully made, well-acted 60's flick has been so neglected.

Please Note: Albert Finney and Eleanor Bron are still around so the possibility still exists of a Special Feature interview segment. I'm sure they have some interesting stories about the making of this film.

And Stanley Donen, the film's director, is now pushing 81 (his birthday will be on April 13). He also directed Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face and Charade.
