In a world full of love stories that have happy endings, this doomed romance stands out, but for no other reason than that, I failed to see what's so remarkable about it.

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!

Wer kennt den Spruch nicht, dass man nur heiratet, um einen Zeugen für das eigene Leben zu gewinnen? Diesen Binsenweisheit eröffnet einen guten Zugang zum Film Blue Valentine, der den Blick auf zwei verwirrte Menschen wirft. Haben Dean und Cindy aus diesem Grund geheiratet? Oder War es Deans dringender Wunsch? Hat Cindy anschliessend einfach die Zeit vergessen - und schon waren sechs Jahre rum? Äusserst genau beobachtet der Filmemacher und Autor Derek Cianfrance die Geburtsstunde sowie das Ende einer Beziehung. Nach sechs Ehejahren kann sich Cindy beim besten Willen nicht mehr erinnern, weshalb sie Dean geheiratet hat. Fest steht aber, dass sie mental und körperlich am Ende ist.

“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.

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 …
