Stereotyped and boring
16 June 2019 | by FrenchEddieFelsonSee all my reviews

Anna: she is a stifling spouse and a mother suffering of an excessive adulation for her newborn. She is globally ingenuous / childish, and she is able to overreact unpredictably. A pain in the neck or a living nightmare: your choice! Adam: although ultra-adorable, we wonder how he puts up with Anna, throughout the entire film. The ideal husband, no doubt! Together, they live in Paris and are invited to commemorate the seventy-fifth anniversary of the destruction of the birth village community of Adam's grandfather, in the very heart of Poland.

It's well played, especially with Judith Chemla and Arthur Igual, but the film drags on excessively and is sometimes almost soporific, because of cheesy dialogues and a script with a blatant lack of originality. Thus, the scene with Irene and Anna, at the birthplace of the grandmother, is supposed to be, I think, an outstanding opportunity for a mother-daughter catharsis. But it just falls through. Knowing that we barely stand Anna for one hour, how to empathize with her, even during a few minutes?

As a postscript, I did not understand the movie title. At all! Dixit Wikipedia, a honeymoon is either a holiday taken by newlyweds immediately after their wedding, either the lunar month following the wedding. I was not aware of the second part of this definition. However, we repeatedly hear that they go to Poland to commemorate a painful event related to World War II. So... could anyone explain the relationship between World War II and a honeymoon?!? Is this supposed to be funny?... philosophical?... spiritual? Well, well, well, for sure, it's messy!
