THE THREE-WAY WEDDING REVIEWED
“The Three-Way Wedding” finds a playwright playing a game of seduction with ex-wife. Fortunately, she invites her current lesbian lover into the mix. From there, it’s a battle of wits as these modern French people try to have a three-way marriage. Normally, this is where I’d make a bland pleasantry about the progressiveness of what’s going on. However, I’m exhausted.
There comes a point where the study of interpersonal relationships just becomes passe. Get six or seven together and have them marry each other. Whatever works. Pay taxes, be good citizens and don’t murder anybody. For a modern French film, I couldn’t full any narrative pull. Was I supposed to put off by the central idea? Was I supposed to root for one of the three leads? It just didn’t matter.
So, thank you movie! It was 1 hr and 40 minutes of blandness trying to play it off as intellectual stimulation.
