Take This Waltz (2011)

Directed by: Sarah Polley
Country: USA

Plot: A happily married woman falls for the artist who lives across the street.
Review: Sarah Polley is best known as an actress, having participated in 54 movies so far, including Hal Hartley's "Exotica", Cronenberg's "ExistenZ", Coixet's "My Life Without Me"and Van Dormael's "Mr.Nobody", just to mention a few.  As director she received public acclamation in 2006 with "Away From Her" and now returns with "Take This Waltz". Although the story looks conventional, it is very well told and definitely has something to say about love, relationships and decisions. I believe it could have shown some more nerve in certain details, but has the ability to expose the natural changes that occur in amorous relationships and specially in people who are unsatisfied by nature. Deserves a peek.
