Amateur of action movies, pass your way: Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams produced and played in Blue Valentine, a dark portrait of the modern American couple released in 2010. You might fall asleep watching it.

Anything Blue Review – Blue Valentine, the movie (2010)


Given the cast, the title and the colour code, it could have been the perfect movie to watch on Valentine’s Day, right? Wrong. Or think about it twice, as David and Cindy’s dying love affair really is a bit blue for a romantic night. Chances are you will want a big hug and a really fun movie afterwards (try Luc Besson’s The Fifth Element).

Looking for a real Valentine’s Day movie? Try James Cameron’s Avatar. Then listen to Blue Valentine, the song.

‘A complex portrait of a contemporary American marriage, Blue Valentinetells the story of David and Cindy, a couple who have been together for several years but who are at an impasse in their relationship.

While Cindy has blossomed into a woman with opportunities and options, David is still the same person he was when they met, and he is unable to accept either Cindy’s growth or his lack of it.

Innovatively structured, the narrative unfolds in two distinct time frames, juxtaposing scenes of first love and youthful sexuality with those of disenchantment and discord.’
