Yes I watched it and thought the acting was excellent. The wife's tension could actually be felt (for me anyway) as could the tension between the couple. I was a bit confused about Geoff as he seemed to have some emotional problems but not clear what they were. BUT mostly I was SO disappointed with the ending - I was deeply into it and then - wham - it had suddenly ended.
The not having children wasn't discussed explicitly-the wife just hinted that all the major decisions in their marriage had been influenced by his dead fiancée. I found Charlotte Rampling's performance really moving; she's an amazing actress.
I watched it, I thought it was brilliant and Charlotte Rampling's performance was superb. I agree that it was a very sudden ending. I would love to know what happened next for Kate, if she stayed with him or left. I'm still thinking about it this morning, that's the sign of a good film!
I really liked it although the ending both creeped me out and disappointed me.
I loved that she pulled her arm away. She's obviously had enough. And the song ' smoke gets in your eyes" about the love you never thought would, walking out... genius.
For me it was the total lack of honesty. Everyone has a past but Geoff wasn't able to share that. Implying he still had very deep feelings for his lost love. Had he explained about his girlfriend/ wife and her pregnancy 45 years it would have been different. She never knew her husband at all.
