The End of the Affair (1999)



Reviews and Comments

The End of the Affair is a romance drama set in England during World War II. The atmosphere is appropriately grim: the days are gray and drizzly, and the nights are darker. The passion between the main characters is the only thing bright and warm and vibrant to be found. I liked how this movie uses mood and atmosphere to portray such stark contrast without becoming overbearing with either end of the spectrum. There is, however, precious little else that made an impression with me. I like what the movie feels like; the story and characters are passably interesting while watching but ultimately forgettable.
