Great performances but depressing. Wasn't my cup of tea.
I absolutely loved this movie. You could feel every emotion of each character. Also very relatable to real life experiences.
A beautiful movie. Superbly told, equisit acting, clever directing and such a raw insight into a relationship that means you may only possibly like this movie, if you've lived it. Just beautiful.
I love those two but I hated it..... I thought the story would be better. Truly disappointed.
Agree with previous reviews, it was very raw and very realistic. Fascinating movie!!
Excellent performances by the leads. Depressingly true to live portrayal of the birth and death of a relationship.
Great performances but depressing. Raw look at a real relationship.
Beautifully acted and a real look into what a marriage truly can be like.
It was an alright movie,nothing great,slightly "dark".Worth a rent but I wouldn't watch it again.
BAD MOVIE,awkward to watch romance movie? watch this with ur spouse and feel awkward...didn't care for this movie
the story line was hard to follow because it went back and forth in time, but if you watched it carefully it was a good movie
The acting was great, but I felt it was too slow for me.
Michelle & Ryan are brilliant in this movie. I'm only giving it a 3 because it is so damn depressing. I was down for days. Not that every movie has to have a happy ending ... but my gosh, from the opening scene this one is for the truly BLUE. So, I'll give it that. Well done. But hard to recommend, as so many people want to escape from the every day.
Sad but realistic depiction of modern relationships. Leading actors are great.
The movie was well done, but slightly depressing at times.
It is always a treat to see Ryan Gosling on the big screen. Not only is he a very sexy man, he is also a spectacular actor. I thoroughly enjoyed the chemistry he and Michelle Williams had in the film. Both of their performances were fantastic. Thinking retrospectively, the film was great, but while I was watching the film, I felt that the plot-line could have used more spice. The dialogue was great and I believe the movie is a realistic depiction of the ups-and-downs one may face while in a relationship, but the story could have used more work. Overall, I do recommend this film to anyone who can stomach lots of drama, dialogue, and sex. If you do watch the film, please note that the dramatic
not as bad as I feared
good, but not as good as i expected it to be.
This film tore my heart out. The acting was so good, and the story subtle, believable, and genuine. Michelle Williams was amazing. I cried for a long time.
Depicts the phase some marriages go though and how hard it is to find your way back to the love that seems lost.
good, not for kids
Superb acting; excellent movie!
Not as I expected in a movie.
Wow a truly realistic portrayal! Ryan and Michelle play their characters so well that you feel like you are in the story.
Beautiful but heart wrenching movie. The acting was impectable.
Over rated! While great acting is clearly shown, the plot is boring and unrealistic. I had a lot of hope for this movie and was sad to be let down
realistic and human portrayal of the realistic ups and downs of a relationship.
Amazing acting by Michelle & Ryan.
A great look at how modern day marriages often end up. A struggle from the beginning, this movies lovers do a great job portraying a falling out of love between two people.
i wish they had shared more of the growth of their relationship.
This movie is a gut-wrenching experience.The marriage breakdown of the protagonists is depressing to witness.But,the main characters are realistically portayed by Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams(deservedly Oscar nominated).
I loved this movie. To me it is an epic Love story. It displays the real love that actually happens to people, and that love when it dies. It's highly relate-able. It's raw, and vivid and soul catching. Ryan gosling kicks in however with a sigh of comic relief. Michelle williams was a very good protrayal of a broken woman. Both actors where amazing, story line was amazing. Love isint always a fairytale, sometimes it's a blue valentine..
A little corny but moving in parts
Showed how people grow apart if you dont have the same goals. Good movie!
Good throughout, disappointed in the ending. For me, I found myself saying 'what the heck-credits??? - where is the ending???'
Good story but damn depressing.....worth seeing ... oh ya!!!
Beautiful story with realistic feeling of a relationship journey with a feeling of reality that touches the heart and ultimately reality is sad. Wonderful story that is told in such a short amount of time!!! Worth seeing!!!
ok movie i guess...
Wonderful acting to compliment a great movie.
Not worth the money for the ticket. Ending not a full ending, chemtistry between to the main leads....
Acting was excellent (actors were able to convey the intensity of emotions), however, everything else about the film was poor, including the plot. It was way too long and drawn out. I do not recommend this film. 1.5/5 overall -BC
Ryan Gosling is fantastic in all his movies.
Amazing storyline. Out of the ordinary cinematography. Love and hate, both passionately portrayed by Gosling and Williams. Blending past events with the present and not knowing how far off you are from the real moment is what strikes me as beautiful directing and editing of the film.
It was a waste of time and money
This movie made me want to purchase 100 cats and live alone for the rest of my life.
i like it very much . iam a great fan of ryan gosling .
Heartwrenching, moving, and extremely depressing.... but incredible performances. Never a boring moment. I feel like I actually know the characters their performances were so raw and real. But don't expect a cute little romance.
A great but painful love story. Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams both put in stellar performances. A story about life, love and the hardships that it entails.
it was weird, did not keep my attention
