When i was going through the DVDs in the store yesterday, i was just struck by a movie not because of its title, front cover or it director but its actor and actress…Kate Winslet and Leonardo Dicaprio (my ever favourite couple) were meeting again on the wide screen since Titanic…and as I am a huge fan of the movie Titanic, i just bought the DVD without any hesitation. I picked it up today as my sunday movie. I started to watch. A few minutes passed, there was nothing to worth seeing, half an hour passed, there was still nothing to see. I am not saying Kate was acting bad ( I really appreciate her fitting in each and every role in very variety of movies and i am her fan i can say), i am not saying Leonardo was bad either because he was taking his role serious and he was well enough. However, there was something missing which i cannot express fully and satisfactorily. May be they were not as good as a couple in this movie as i had suited them in Titanic couple and they should have been just as i placed them…May be that was why i found the movie quite slow, dull, even boring.
It was about a married couple living in US with two kids. The couple was stuck between the realistic and unrealistic world. The realistic one was saying they should stay whereever they are, they should work in a routine, boring but well-paid job and they should pretend to be happy outside whereas the unrealistic world was saying let the dreams come true, they should pack all the stuff they have and should head to Paris to start a new life with fresh dreams. This was not that simple though!
The decision of not staying and the fear of change were forcing them to have fight each and every day and this was making the love between them fade away slowly…
Subject matter of the movie was quite catchy, and the movie has the brilliant leading cast…as i said may be it was just my mind categorizing the movie as boring as i captured this couple years ago as something else.
May be you should just see the movie, and let me know your own opinions:)
