5 to 7 (2015) Movie review: A Modern Day Classic 10/10

It’s been a few weeks since I saw this film but I can recall the dialogue & style of the film like it was yesterday.

The film is about a struggling writer who makes an excuse to talk to a beautiful women,what follows is a slow dance in the dark to discover if these two strangers have more in common than just sexual attraction.

I am in love with this film,it’s so unusual now day’s that a romantic film can make you feel anything for the plot or the lead characters,this movie does both with ease.

(Spoiler alert)

The title will probably give the plot away for people who have spent much time in France but for me I have never heard about the idea of having an open 5 to 7 relationship outside of marriage,the idea sounds morally wrong but as the film goes on I found myself swaying on both sides of the debate,added to this the romance blossoming around the story is enough to make you reflect on your own love life & smile within at the very prospect of asking your partner if he/she would entertain both of you having a fling between the hours of 5 to 7.

The concept is interesting but in no way does this become the shining reason to see the film,the writing & the acting are the reason,each character has depth and sincerity that will make you laugh,cry & breathe a sense satisfaction.

I am sure if this film was to become a reality for my life, my wife would have a fantastic new lover & I would end up in a coffee shop reading the sports section between the hours of 5 to 7.

10/10

5 to 7 Movie review (2014) The Best film of 2015 – Pure & heartbreaking

It’s very rare when you come across a movie that get’s you excited about such a basic premise,a young man is attracted to an older french lady,most experienced viewers would dismiss such an idea as done,only problem with 5 to 7 is the movie is a delight and a shock to anything that has gone before it!

The lead actress is so beautiful that I have gone away since just to check that there was no  CGI involved,she is so charming that she makes an older man feel 15 again just at the drop of her grin.

The lead actor makes easy work of playing the devoted lover who is lost from the start in desire,jealousy & envy.

The pure genius within this film is the believability and heart that pumps throughout.

Best film of 2015.
