Please do! IMO the reason why people didnt like this film so much is the combination called THEM basically cuts and pastes the two seperate films in such a way that nothing really makes sense. I think the director shouldve released the other two movies and promoted the heck out of the idea of the different perspectives to keep us tuned in. Also THEM shouldve been taken from the third perspective: friends, family, associates/strangers. But aside from that if you dont want to be disappointed or confused watch the two seperate movies included in the video (Him and Her). The acting and stories/persepectives are just SO strong and u really feel for the families. James Mcavoy sometimes loses his American accent throughout the film and its endearing 😂😂😂

Not what I expected. I love James Mcavoy. He is just so lovable. This movie was about a love story that endured unimaginable heartache. It made me feel sad watching two characters that created something so good be literally torn down by something they couldnt control. I was hard to watch their pain. Only a few times do we get to feel the joy their love story was built from & when it was full of love.
Nice change to find a movie I could sit through. Most of the movies I've been watching have been "scraping the barrel" so to speak. Already watched everything I could find worth watching. I don't have cable I have no other streaming services and I've been home quarantined for over 7 weeks now. Going stir crazy. Two thumbs up! :)
I'm surprised by the frequent use of the adjective "boring" to describe it, but then perhaps this film is best appreciated by those who have lived long enough to experience at least one significant loss. The dialogue reminded me of how very inarticulate we find ourselves just when we desparately don't want to be. Yes, the film is slow-paced, but that allows for character development, and, yes, the story is told with flashbacks, but, I felt it only adds to the poignancy of this couple struggling with love, anger, and loss. The ending is ambiguous, but, doesn't that leave room for hope? Every cast member is wonderful in his or her role, and Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy are heartbreakingly believable in their roles as a couple whose love for one another has come undone. Isabelle Huppert and John Hurt as the parents of Chastain's character are a perfect, if quirky, counterpoint to her own marriage. The soundtrack is usually spot-one, especially the song used for the closing scene and credits. If you enjoy thoughtful movies or sad movies, then this might just be one for you!
5.0 out of 5 starsDelve deep into the experience of love and loss...

A beautiful story that is wonderfully told by a stellar cast. Keep the tissues handy for this one. Also, make sure you get the Blu-ray import so you get all three films: 'Him', 'Her', and 'Them'. Watch them in that order and watch the story unfold.
5.0 out of 5 starsOnly the THEM cut on the bilingual release

For those buying the bilingual version (in/from Amazon Canada), be advised that it has only the THEM version. I'm still not entirely clear how to tell which version of this film has all three versions. For sure, though, it isn't this one.
3.0 out of 5 starsJust the two of them in three parts

This review is based on the DVD version as I thought my unlocked player would be able to play this but it only works for DVDs. The film has three parts Him, Her and Them. Watch Him first and then Them for the best enjoyment. James McAvoy is his usual quality self
