Husbands and Wives

A happily married couple (Sydney Pollack and Judy Davis) happily announces their mutually arrived at amicable separation to close friends (Woody Allen and Mia Farrow) which shatters their perceptions and causes them to entertain never before thought possible infidelities. Husbands and Wives has a great cast (Pollack and Davis are excellent) committing some intense scenes and drawing from an intelligent, more vulgar than usual Allen screenplay though there are a few lulls and film's trajectory quickly becomes apparent. It is also a strange decision (and I'm not sure its the correct one either) to film in a cinema verite style.
