“ Roz works at an art gallery (rarely seen) and Lil's inner life involves a yacht company, where she is pursued by Saul (Gary Sweet), who she finds boring.
“ Not looking as shopworn as she tries to convey, the ever-youthful Naomi Watts ("The Impossible") portrays Lil with a mix of insecurity and confusion that comes across as quite natural.
“ At the beginning of the movie, you find it boring.
“ It was absolutely breathtaking!
“ It's always intriguing when actresses as respected as Naomi Watts and Robin Wright turn up in films with plot outlines straight out of a porn movie or a particularly salacious soap opera.
“ The flat, occasionally corny script yields a contrived movie with flat, uninteresting characters.
“ Instead we got this dirge of a middle-brow 'procrastination' on what happens when two bored, over-indulged Aussie women transgress by sleeping by one another's boring, over-indulged (and strangely anti-social) sons.
“ This is a very good and engrossing drama and is well worth watching.
“ Naomi Watts and Robin Wright are not your average mid 40's moms, both being stunning looking with great figures.
“ not only because the casting/the performance and the directing are stunning.
“ Poor actors (particularly the brown haired boy) , incredibly boring, and just plain gross.
“Sure enough, the scenery is breathtaking and there is also a dose of serenity.
“ A fascinating, intellectual and profound exploration of the psyches of four uniquely damaged characters: two boys who never quite left the womb, growing up in a small and affluent community far removed from reality, with one father figure MIA, the other passive and disconnected, and only their mothers for comfort and company; and two women, who never conquered their fears of aging or their struggles with self-esteem and sexual confidence, and whose intimate love for each other and need to feel young and desired manifest themselves in dangerous liaisons with each other's sons.
“ There are several reasons for watching TWO MOTHERS: the first being the stunning photography of a rural seaside landscape (by Christophe Beaucarne), full of sandy beaches and azure-blue seas.
“ Intriguing and insightful in theory, melodramatic and fake in practice.
“ Instead, it proceeds along a more boring path almost to an extent where the characters nearly accept it as normal.
“ My friend was equally bored, or probably a lot more so!
“ I took a couple of stars off because the pacing is a little slow.
“ The story takes on incest overtones and yet still bores.
“ The cinematography by Christophe Beaucarne and the musical score by Christopher Gordon enhance the liquid flow of this stunning film.
“Despite the provocative concept, this movie plays out like a torpid middle aged romance fantasy novel - the characterizations, dialogue, directing, acting (apart from Robin Wrights impressive Aussie accent) and music is dull, one dimensional, utterly unimaginative, sometimes almost amateurish and often cringe worthy.
“ -I'm too disappointed about the movie,too ridiculous and boring!
“ I liked this film for many reasons, but afterward I realized how contrived it was.
“ This film is great, hope you enjoyed it.
“ADORE is one of the strongest, most satisfying films to come out in recent years, and I enjoyed it immensely.
“ The music is rather boring and uninspired though.
“ On the one hand the casting was wrong, on the other hand the story was boring because it lacked conflict.
“ The setting and location the beach house and beach are stunning - no wonder no one wanted to leave.
“ Just for that the movie is worth watching.
“ Then the plot started becoming more and more predictable, resembling a cheap chick flick.
“ I say it's 100 entertaining minutes.
“Overall, in spite of some silly dialogue, it's riveting, labyrinthine, and unique - it's been a very long time since an English-language film explored female sexuality and psychology as intimately and impartially as this one does.
“ Notice I said 5 minutes, not 10, because with 10 you'd probably write something at least a bit more interesting and creative than this dull, unimaginative, predictable, somnambulant movie.
“ strange, fascinating, crazy, obscene.
“ Intriguing, Anne Fontaine did a wonderful job with this one
“ The plot certainly gets your full attention; though the film may be a little too contrived to be really memorable, the sex scenes are indeed very sexy and the svelte forty-something female leads appear to be fully empowered (though I'm so sure that's what Lessing had in mind!
“ Boring .
“ Formerly "Two Mothers", this intense drama focuses on two best friends since childhood and how their lives will intertwine as their sons become the objects of each other's affection.
“ boring and disappointing .
“ So intense.
“ Boring beautiful people's problems .
“ One of the worst movie I have seen this year .
“ It's well made and well acted; disturbing but definitely worth the watch.
“ Just for that the movie is worth watching.
“at times very cliche, and I did not exactly understand the ending - at one point, I even wondered if they could possibly be dead because they looked quite lifeless.
“ It was a bit too "choppy" at times as often scenes were either too drawn out or cut short that sometimes the point was lost.
“ Instead, it was very boring and very weak drama that it just drags along for nearly 2-hours.
“ Unfortunately, it continues to play with this giving into temptation, moving through ridiculous dialogues and predictable situations.
“ Had high expectations for the film because of its intriguing synopsis.
“ "Adore" is a bore .
“ Add to the complexities of this foursome, are age appropriate love interests who will unknowingly be dragged into these progressively messy arrangement with unexpected consequences.
“ Both Xavier Samuel and James Frecheville are given terribly uninteresting and inexpressive roles, spending most of the film surfing and being underserviced by flat dialogue.
“ It has a few "so bad it's good" moments, but ultimately it failed to keep my attention and had me bored from the moment I realized it was a chick flick.
“ The story just seemed too contrived and far fetched.
“ Great acting, beautiful setting, an enjoyable film to watch...
“ They seem predictable to everyone except the leads.
“ Boring and Lacks Pizazz .
“ This movie I can see as a fantasy scenario for real life people who have difficulty coming to terms with aging, so entertaining from that perspective surely.
“ And how can a movie be so insanely slow moving, and at the same time charge ahead insanely fast.
