5 x 2 (2005)

It's like Scenes from a Marriage, only in reverse and with unlikeable ciphers in the leads instead of Ullman and Josephson. Francois Ozon's relationship drama gains nothing in context from being told the wrong way 'round, and too often it chooses to keep its characters' motivations ambiguous, thus robbing us of any reason to actually give a flying shit about these people. Then again, I'm not even that big a fan of Pinter's Betrayal (another of this film's obvious inspirations). So what do I know, etc. etc.

Grade: C
