Jump cutting back and forth in time with seeming abandon, Donen and scriptwriter Frederic Raphael chronicle the 12-year relationship between architect Wallace (Albert Finney) and his wife (Audrey Hepburn).

This is a film that I admire more with each viewing, and without doubt deserves its cult status. It is true that the rather uneasy mix between whimsical comedy and the late 60's Euro-chic feel of the picture can seem, at times, a bit dated; but Stanley Donen's interpretation of the ups and downs and complexities of a modern marriage are spot on. Audrey Hepburn plays the charming Joanna who enjoys the luxuries that come with being a successful architect's wife, yet is not prepared to put up with the boredom of having a workaholic husband. Albert Finney plays the bluff, arrogant and impossible husband she ends up with- who has at the same time, considerable charm of a type which makes their sudden marriage seem entirely plausible. A terrific score by Mancini, locations on the Cote d'Azur- and that dream machine of all time- the Mercedes Pagoda Top Convertible remind us all of those halycon holidays in the South of France that we may have had in the past, or would have liked to have had. Not to mention a tiny appearance by a young Jacqueline Bisset which led to her role in Truffaut's Day for Night. Above all, Fredric Raphael's sophisticated and witty screenplay underlines the fact that style and glamour in themselves remain superficial and that with all the will in the world, marriage ain't easy. Highly recommended.

As Amazon list these reviews with all versions of the film for sale and as most of the reviewers of this film refer to the poor quality of the DVD transfer I just wanted to point out they are referring to the Optimum -region 2- version. The 20th Century Fox -region 1- version is a very high quality transfer in the correct ratio, the DVD also has an excellent commentary track from director Stanley Donen.

If you can't play region 1 DVDs on your player it's a tough call because although a great film, Hepburn's best ever performance in my opinion, the Optimum region 2 DVD is a disgrace. Maybe it's time to get yourself a region free player.

My 5 star rating is for the Fox region 1 version it would be 1 star for the Optimum region 2 version.

I saw this film recently and loved it. Until I found it on Amazon's site I'd never even heard of it. Audrey and her co-star Albert Finney both give wonderful performances. The film can be a bit confusing as it jumps frequently between various periods in their life together but it has a marvellous story and definitely bears repeated viewings. I have seen most of Audrey Hepburn's films and I rate this as one of her best-almost on a par with Breakfast at Tiffanys. This is a rarely seen classic and deserves to be better known.

This is a colourful, stylish and vibrant comedy-drama that,despite having a very 60's feel, certainly withstands the test of time beautifully. We finally see Audrey hepburn matched up with an equally young, handsome and charming co-star in Albert Finney, and the film is all the better for it. Donen expertly weaves a time-shifting plot along a 'road trip', and brings out the best in the two stars. Hepburn's bittersweet performance as the disillusioned wife is one of her most three-dimensional roles ever, and Finney shines his portrayal of a cocky but charming husband. The two together really do capture the ups and downs of a marriage, with all the passion and the fireworks along the way, and this film to this day remains as honest, realistic and as endearing as any that I can remember.
The third 'star' of the film is the incredible score from Henry Mancini, which is amongst the very best work he has ever done. It really is an example of how the score can really make a film special. Don't worry about the DVD transfer, ratios etc. When a film is this good, none of that stuff really matters. Go get it and enjoy one of the most cherished and timeless films of the 60's.

Wonderful Movie, Appalling Transfer

'Two For The Road' is a great little piece of hi-style, brittle sixties film-making. Frederic Raphael's screenplay is jewelled with all his trademark incisiveness and wit, the leads are attractive, and Ms Hepburn is gorgeous in a succession of outfits by Quant, Rabanne, et al.

Unfortunately, the pleasure I was expecting from seeing it again was ruined by the extremely poor quality of the conversion to DVD. A very average print covered in specks and scratches has been further degraded by a transfer which looks as if someone got hold of an old video and filmed it straight from a TV screen. It's blurry, muddy, muffled and all but unwatchable, like one of those low-grade freebies you sometimes get with the Sunday `papers. What is the point of taking a film with such visual delights and doing such a below-average job with it?

I've seen the film occasionally on TV, and know that age is not responsible for this. Another little-known Hepburn movie, 'Paris when It Sizzles', looks on its DVD release as if it were filmed yesterday.

The producers of this edition clearly want us to think they care about the movie. There are informative sleeve notes and a look of quality about the packaging. But the film itself is utterly spoiled.

No marks either for the 'Stills Gallery', which is in fact seven small snapshots.

Altogether, very disappointing.
