since 1998 (in various forms)

Movie title: By the Sea

My rating ***


God this is a slow film.
The story is actually reasonable but god it's slow.
Angelina Jolie is as hot as always but god she's miserable.
Brad Pitt is the Hemingway-like writer / drunk who seems to have had enough of his wife and then, on the other hand, adores her.
Trouble is, his wife is preoccupied with the couple in the room next door and then has the nerve to bollock Pitt for glancing at the woman in said room next door.
Weird but enticing.
Lots of French with subtitles.
I'd recommend either a good French red or perhaps brandy for this one.
