2.5 out of 10 Grim is the word
Myriam from Dublin, 11 Apr 2012
Don't watch this movie if you need cheering up, it is definitely very grim. The sex scenes are also fairly off-putting, I guess to reflect the characters' increasingly damaged relationship. Having said this, both Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams are very good and also very natural in the movie. Some scenes look like they were not actually acted but that the 2 of them were just having a bit of a laugh together. Still can't figure out if I liked it or not though, definitely makes you think of what makes a relationship work and 2 people fall out of love.

2.5 out of 10 Heavy enough
Denise from Sligo, 23 Nov 2012
Great acting, have never seen Ryan Gosling like this, but although I knew roughly what it was about, I'm not sure that I learned anything about relationships (my friend said it gave her great insight) Maybe you'll find a message in it?

3 out of 10 Brilliant performances but could induce suicide
Lee from Kerry, 29 May 2011
Brilliant performances but the story is realistic and will only send embittered and estranged spouses to a whole new level of depression. Not a cheerful movie

What's it about....
A complex portrait of a contemporary American marriage, "Blue Valentine" tells 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,...
