This is an emotionally engaging film study of two characters who have both suffered some childhood trauma and fall in love. The male has had maternal abandonement and it has left him seeking love and family - he is an 'unfinished' person, with a massively kind and loving heart but an inability to connect to his identity and build on it within a relationship. He is needy, emotionally fragile, and in his need for love he leaves himself wide open to a kind of emotional abuse that invariably he sets up in his behaviour. A child within a man. The girl has a bully of a father and it seems she has been quite promiscuous - not able to emotionally engage with men until she meets the young man who decides to marry her and accept her pregnancy. She is very intelligent and her choices are not often with her whole heart - she loves the young man but not enough because she is also not a complete person; she has too many conditions in her love and the young man is unable to live up to them or able to achieve his own potential. The story unfolds and is dramatic and deeply sad. Their young love was full of promise but the film shows that often love is not enough - human beings carry burdens and trauma from breakdowns in family relationships and this can effect their ability to build loving adult relationships later. Blue Valentine is an incredible film - it leaves you to do a lot of work and yet provides all the beautiful imagery and superb acting to see a marvellous human story unfold.

'A Love Story For Anyone That's Ever Been in Love', the tagline clearly indicates the dreary and realistic tone of the film, before you have even had a chance to learn anything about it. As i'm sure you are well aware, not all great loves have happy endings and this film certainly isn't one of them, so if you are looking for a remake of The Notebook, i'd steer well away from this one.

The film follows the highs and lows of Dean and Cindy, A couple which first meet while Dean is working as a removal man. Dean feels the two have an instant connection and persues Cindy. The film inter-cuts between the present day and past moments in their relationship, and we get a clear and unbiased overview of their relationship. There is a great deal of happy moments between the couple, generally made even better by the charismatic energy that Gosling and Michelle Williams portray on set, but we also see the negatives like the onset of arguments, and the slow increase in their frequency.

I don't want to say much more as I feel the pleasure is in getting to know the characters yourself as you start to feel for them, and Gosling and Williams allow you to feel involved in their lives. I had no clue what was going to play out on screen before me as I sat down to watch this film, and I think that is the best way to approach it.

Buy it and enjoy! The music is class and the cinematography is pretty interesting, so visually its also pretty lovely. Although I would warn those of you who are expecting a soppy love story, this isn't for you.

This is one of the best films I have ever seen. It is a quiet, subtle movie and left me absolutely heartbroken by the end. It is a very truthful story of how people fall in and out of love. Here there are no big gestures, no happy ever afters - this film is about how day to day life often gets in the way. This is the kind of film that will get under your skin and be with you for days afterwards.

It is shot beautifully with a warm happy glow in the before shots & a cold sharp blue, metallic feel for the current day scenes. The Acting is second to none. I read that before shooting the second part of the film, they lived together in a small 1 bed apartment for a couple of weeks to feel that claustrophobic, frustration that these characters find themselves in. And the extra effort in doing that shows 100% on film. It is stunning.

This isn't a cosy romantic date night movie. It is an insight into a breakdown of a relationship. The entire movie is uncomfortable and at times brutal to watch - which is what makes it so brilliant.

An emotionally draining, beautiful film.

Absolutely mesmerising, incredibly heartbreaking, and strangely haunting. This film stayed with me for days. I think what puts people off this film is its resistance to resolution, and its unsettlingly real performances. Gosling and Williams manage to incite feelings of discomfort in the audience similar to watching a fight between a married couple at a dinner party. Love and hate go hand in hand here, as do overwhelming lust and intense emptiness. Perhaps this is what scares the reviewers who give one stars - that this film examines love and its inability to remain constant against its biggest enemy: time.

I don't know: the actors and the structure (a mix of flashbacks and flashforwards telling the casual beginning and the unpredictable twist of a love story) could make it a little gem.
But unfortunately I found this film not mature or well developed at all.
The point is that, after the engaging and compelling start, it reveals a certain lack of depth, genuinity and, most of all, it just shows emotion and depth but does not do much to make you feel their story.
A story that remains just a good subject, but does not properly unfold to become memorable.
