Malcolm & Marie
9 February 2021 | by mercantileluigiSee all my reviews

An uninspired direction, black and white photography of dubious value and the talent of the two talented actors relegated to a sometimes embarrassing performance, always over the top. What is saved are the few passages that are sincere in their writing and measured in their acting.
