Overview

Based on a two-character play by Michael Cristofer who also wrote the screenplay, Breaking Up is an odd sort of love story about a couple who aren't sure what to do about their relationship. Steve Russell Crowe is a photographer and Monica Salma Hayek is a schoolteacher. They're in love, but their emotional bond is so intense it borders on manic-depressive -- at any given moment, they're either deliriously happy with each other or so frustrated they're ready to call it off for good. Every time they try to sit down and seriously discuss their relationship, it turns into a disaster -- they can't stay together but they can't stay apart, either. As Monica summarizes their relationship, "It's a failure, but it's ours." Breaking Up follows Steve and Monica as they debate the pros and cons of their relationship over several years in vignettes that range from the comic to the horrifying. Breaking Up was shot in 1995, but didn't emerge into limited release until 1997.

    Watch "Breaking Up",...........it's not so hard to do.

    I saw this movie several years ago and really liked it. "Breaking Up" is about two people in a relationship that ultimately doesn't work out but, each partner can't understand why. How many of us have been in relationships that failed and left us confused. I think that's why I related to this movie, it does not follow any predictable path but, shows the ups and downs of a relationship between a man and a woman. I would strongly recommend this movie to anyone who is in a relationship whether it be good or bad and decide for themselves as to its value.
