Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench – Movie Review


The film follows Guy and Madeline as they try to make their way, post-breakup.


“Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench” has won a number of film festival awards by recasting the MGM musical tradition in a gritty, vérité style. First of all, it is in black and white, which I guess means artsy to you. What it means to me is you better have something pretty fabulous to show me here, which it didn’t. I mean, I guess it is the story of several people who fall in and out of love with one another. I found it tedious, amateurish and uncomfortable to watch. Zero stars.
