Blume in Love
Warner Home Video
"Tellingly funny, poignant and Smart". Time
This sharply observed, acidly witty and often moving dissection of marriage and divorce is, said The Sun "A hilarious examination of lax morals in the affluent American let's-have-fun society". Director Paul Mazursky's hugely entertaining screenplay gives and ideal role - perfectly shaped - to George Segal as a successful Holywood divorce lawyer divorced by his wife, Susan Anspach, when she catches him in bed with his secretary.
Anspach, finds consolation in the arms of hippie musician Kris Kristofferson while Segal, despite an affair with the former flame Marsha Manson, realizes that he still loves his ex-wife. And, when neither psychiatry nor promiscuity helps, he decides to try and get Anspach back again...
Said The Sunday Times, Segal's "performance here never gets a syllable wrong" and, noted The Guardian, "I can't say I've ever seen Segal better", adding that "Susan Anspach is also exceptionally good". Fine performances, come from Kristofferson, Shelley Winters as an emotional divorcee and Mazursky himself in a slyly humorous portrayal of Segal's business partner in what "The Sunday Telegraph called "A shrewd, loving and ultimately rather lovable film".
