A Few Days in September (15)

Blurry photography matches a blurry plot in this French drama about a secret agent (Juliette Binoche) who escorts the son and daughter of an old associate to an assignation in Venice.









They are pursued there by a poetry-quoting hit-man (John Turturro) who's always on the phone to his shrink. It is set in the week leading up to September 11, though writer-director Santiago Amigorena refuses to establish the nature of the link between Binoche's mission and the forthcoming catastrophe. It is enigmatic, but in a languidly self-important way; a pillow-fight is about as energetic as it gets.

Skipping special occasions and failing to return phone calls causes resentment. You have to be more engaged to sustain loving bonds. Call someone you've missed. It may take a few tries, but it's worth the effort. Be forthright about why you have been out of touch. Communication is the cornerstone of every healthy relationship.More
