Realistic and honest, and both beautiful and tragic, Blue Valentine grips you and never lets go. Gosling and Williams give astounding performances, truly heartbreaking, devastating performances. This film is unforgettable and powerful. One of the best films of 2010!

Conveys all the positive and negative aspects of a relationship, with believability. This story is portrayed in a realistic manner that makes you forget you're watching a film. The tremendous acting, from the two leads, brings us closer to feeling the emotions of their characters. The result is truly heartbreaking.

Blue Valentine review

“You gotta be careful with that. You gotta be careful with the person you fall in love is worth it... to you.” The movie focuses on a married couple, Dean Pereira (Gosling) and Cynthia "Cindy" Heller (Williams) with their joys and struggles. Its highlights were the character development (must watch scene with Gosling singing and playing the ukulele and Williams dances and as charming as ever/the heartbreaking scene in the end), authentic screenplay and impressive camera direction. Ryan Gosling shows potential in dramas while Michelle Williams exhibited the best performance of her career and was duly noted in the Academy Awards for her nomination. The pair really conveyed as a couple onscreen was believable which keeps the viewer interested about the outcome. It’s overall plot however ...

A fascinating, tragic, realistic love.

Since I recently re-watched The Place Beyond the Pines (great movie), I thought I'd share my thoughts on director Derek Cianfrance's first directorial effort: Blue Valentine.

A lot of people have pointed out that even though the title is associated with Valentine's Day, and it is technically a romance movie, beware: do not watch this film if you want to have fun. And whatever you do, don't watch it with your date. If you're looking for a romantic comedy, look somewhere else.

Blue Valentine is an awe-inspiring movie, and that's saying something, because it starts out as just a romance.
But the way this story is told and the film is directed always keeps you on the virtual hook and in love with the characters.
It's told in non-chronological order, something a lot of screenwriters te...

Spoiler alert - it's sad

The movie that Revolutionary Road tried to be (you see, you have to show the couple HAPPY at some point to feel sorry for them!) is on display here, as we see two young individuals fall in love quickly, get married, only to have the marriage slowly dissolve. I thought Michelle Williams really stood out here, as her character's hopelessness, insecurity, and frustration were downright believable. Ryan Gosling is okay, but he eventually retreats into his standard indie-hipster-quirky character. The director resorts to some gimmicks to try and make things stand out (hand held cam! hipster music!) and the worst of all is the ad-libibng. I think the film would have been better served with a more concrete script as some scenes just get a little out of control, such as the Gosling-threatens-to-ju...
