While trying to decide whether or not to break up their marriage, Albert Finney and Audrey Hepburn relive all the best and worst moments of the years they have been together as man and wife. From fun, romantic getaways to fights over extramarital affairs, these two dish it out both sweetly and violently before the climactic finish line. Hepburn gives the kind of delicate but firm performance she exceeded at, and Finney is handsomely roguish as her rough but warm husband. The two of them are at the peak of their talents, and the excellent screenplay does them both great credit.
