"When Margot (Michelle Williams), 28, meets Daniel (Luke Kirby), their chemistry is intense and immediate. But Margot suppresses her sudden attraction; she is happily married to Lou (Seth Rogen), a cookbook writer. When Margot learns that Daniel lives across the street from them, the certainty about her domestic life shatters. She and Daniel steal moments throughout the steaming Toronto summer, their eroticism heightened by their restraint. Swelteringly hot, bright and colorful like a bowl of fruit, Take This Waltz leads us, laughing, through the familiar, but uncharted question of what long-term relationships do to love, sex, and our images of ourselves."--Container.

Slow, beautifully filmed, realistic glimpse into the human psyche. A "coming of age" film for 25-35 year olds. I liked it.

Holy Sugar Jets that was the longest 20 minutes I spent trying to be patient before quitting this film. Did not work for me at all.

No plot, but it does have a scene with Sarah Silverman and Michelle Williams nude together. Sorry Sarah Polley this movie is way too long.

The point I walked away with was; Happiness/joy/fulfillment these are fleeting emotions, they come and go as quickly as an orgasm or the peek of a fun carnival ride. When it's over you have to keep going and try to find fulfillment in the little things and simple joys of life.

This movie would have been good if it weren't for Daniel. I loved the high saturation color and dreamlike qualities. However Daniel was the least attractive kind of person to me ever! I actually laughed every time he opened his horrible awful mouth. Margot I related to in many ways though.

I especially like how Polley chose to end the movie.

The "feel-bad movie of the year", for sure. Possibly one of the most pointless time-wasters ever set to film: a grueling, plodding, hopeless story with a collection of uninteresting characters leading uninteresting lives, doing inexplicably uninteresting things. It's a credit to Polley that she manages to infuse the film with a continuous sense of impending... 'something', which is what kept us watching to the end. Nevertheless, nothing interesting ever does happen, and the film does eventually, mercifully, come to a completely un-climactic, although hopeless, end. Perhaps that's exactly the point: a glimpse into the head of someone depression-prone, as they sink down into melancholy and despair. Still, the story resolves to nothing, and offers no hint of solution or understandable cause. A film best accompanied by a large bottle of scotch, if not avoided altogether.

Bored house wife( supposedly to be a writer) does nothing around the house except seeks attention from the full of life enthusiastic cook book writer husband. Wife's constant craves for attention hint the audience that she is thinking someone else constantly. Her mind wonders about the man she met in the airplane who happens to be her neighbour. The wife does not occopy herself with anything in the house , to me she started to become annoyance to her husband. Does she have anything else to do? Nothing. Sits around or bugs her husband for attention while he works. Then she stars stalking this neighbour who appears to be available all the time( because he does not work either). Then any one can guess. Wife lefts the husband for this new interest. They have horrible scenes of three people in the bed. Now what? What is that supposed to mean? The movie ends with both lovers loose interest of each other. Get some theraphy I would say to this lady. As one of the swimmers at the swimming pool says, "New gets old too." this must be the ignored message of the movie.
Mostly predictable, somewhat boring movie about a housewife who seems to innocent at first but became horrible at the end. I wonder why Sarah Polley has chosen this meaningless plot?

Seems like people are split on this movie. I enjoyed it. I wasn't sure the shower scenes of the characters after the swim were necessary, or that some of the sex scenes contributed to the vibe of the movie, but there were some really well done scenes - like the non-verbal communication during the amusement park ride. Dealt with the difficult topic of the struggle of moving from one seemingly good relationship to another in a mature and sympathetic way.
