English couple, Meg and Nick, go to Paris for a weekend to celebrate their 30 year wedding anniversary. It’s a roller-coaster of emotions from the minute they get there – they run so hot and cold… “You can’t not love and hate the same person, usually within the space of five minutes…” says Nick.

Meg and Nick seem to be at a crossroads in their relationship, in their lives. They alternate between domesticity and adventure, between love and hate, and Paris provides the backdrop for it all.

I did quite enjoy this film, even though it was filled more with self-reflectiveness than comedy. It was a film about love, and about how to love with success and happiness really. It is a film for the more mature viewer, and for when that viewer is in a mood for a good narrative.
