I usually dont like romance movies but this is a classic. Lost myself completely in the story and the characters Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood made this movie one of the best I have seen.
I like these actors but the immoral storyline made me angry. How dare this frivolous housewife have an affair that could break up her marriage, just because she is bored and her life hasn't turned out the way she dreamed? Her husband is a lovely, strong provider who loves her, and her children love and need her. I don't understand why this is considered such a classic love story. Yeah, sure, sleep with whoever you want, as long as you're happy who cares who gets hurt?
This would be one of those movies that Meryl acutally acts great in, what a lovely movie, so touching.
Beautiful love story... love Clint Eastwood
Meryl Streep was her usual annoying self as she tried adopted an accent and tried to sound like she had an Italian accent. Why doesn't that woman ever just speak with her normal American accent. She ruined the film for me.
I loved it - Clint Eastwood fabulous as always and Meryl Steep excellent as well.
How does she do it? Meryl Streep that is, sounding for all the world like an Italian woman speaking English. And being of Italian origin wasn't even particularly necessary for the story, an emotional journey through a brief, beautiful and memorable love affair. The film is almost flawless except for the unrealistic depiction of the adult son and the perhaps too long kissing scenes.
It was strange seeing Clint Eastwood as a "nice" character - He did a good job though as usual. I don't generally like Meryl Streep as well but I liked her performance in this film.
Beautiful romantic movie. Love Clint, as always. Merryle was fab too.
Definitely one to see. Enjoyable and touching. Soulful. How it was done (or not done!) in the "old" days.
I've lost count of how many times I've viewed this movie and when I saw it on the Quickflix files I just had to view it one more time. As usual I cried buckets of tears at the end - this is a real classic.
A stunning and beautiful movie. Meryl Streep at her best and a good performance also from Clint Eastwood. One of my favourites.
Acting was superb, Meryl Streep superb! Just irked me that it dragged in parts.
Maybe I was expecting Clint Eastwoods usual action !
This sensitive and well-written movie is another directing triumph for Clint Eastwood who also stars as the lover of a woman who must face the choice of abandoning her family to reach self-actualisement with Eastwood's character, or stay within the loving confines of her tradiitonal family. Difficult issues are addressed in a sensitive manner. The music complements the action and creates moods that recall simpler days. The directing, screenplay and interplay of characters make this one of Eastwood's better movies. Meryl Streep's performance as a warbride from Italy displaced into the stifling constraints of the US midwest in the 50s is rivetting. Altogether a brilliant and moving production.
This is a beautifully written and acted film. I cant say how many times I have seen it but I can still sit through the entire movie without getting bored, you can almost feel the emotions that the characters feel.
A truly beautiful love story. It even brought tears to my husband's eyes!
a beautiful story, played very well by Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood,,shows the boundry of true love ,and loyalty to the family
amazing....I have seen such an emotive and true movie after such a long time...must see it...u will connect with it
Meryl Streep is a fantastic actress. Any movie she makes is a "must see". This movie is romantic. One is transported into the film and feels the pain of the lovers. Get out the tissues.
What a moving film, with exemplary performances by Streep and Eastwood. It may be slow to some viewers, but I believe the director saw this as necessary to create the powerful emotions between the two main characters - from the development of there mutual attraction to the emotional turmoil they experienced - they had me weeping. The electricity between Streep and Eastwood completed the scenario. Streep is a brilliant actress and what an infectious laugh she has. It was unusual to see Eastwood undertake a "softee" role, but he did it very well indeed - very seductive.
I love this movie. It's beautiful and touching
Excellent casting, production and script, like the majority of Clint Eastwood's productions.
I have seen this movie many times but cant get enough of it. Its just a beautiful love story. Both leading actors are a treat. Clints direction is of first rate as ever.
A very moving film which stirs the emotions
Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood give superb performances in this sensitive, moving film.
Powerful, emotive love story, a must see. Excellent.
A beautiful love story superbly acted. Meryl Streep is a delight.
Random chance results in a meeting between two people at the crossroads of their lives - neither aware of this until the fateful day. Streep and Eastwood work hard to portray the feelings at work inside the characters and are mostly successful - the "parting" scene was almost to much for them - but watch on...
