      The Story of My Wife

      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      The Story of My Wife gets a pair of strong performances out of its talented leads, but they're wholly undermined by a story that's nowhere near compelling enough to support the movie's sprawling runtime.

      Boyd van Hoeij Hollywood Reporter Cinephiles who are fans of Enyedi's work will be left wondering whether her idiosyncratic voice took an extended vacation when she made this film. Jul 16, 2021 Full Review Jessica Kiang Variety "Story" falls into every trap of the over-reverential adaptation: individual scenes go on too long, there are far too many of them, and everyone sounds like they're reading when they speak. Jul 16, 2021 Full Review Wendy Ide Screen International When the dialogue sounds this inauthentic, there's little chance of persuading the audience that the relationship at the film's core is genuine, or indeed anything worth caring about. Jul 16, 2021 Full Review Diego Batlle Otroscines.com Cold, artificial, solemn, with zero chemistry between the protagonists; a film almost three hours long that gifts us some masterful shots and very little else. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 2/5 Mar 15, 2024 Full Review Amparo Cabal EscribiendoCine Naber's performance and, especially, Seydoux's captivating characterization hardly keep a ship afloat that, nonetheless, is inevitably going adrift. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 4/10 Mar 14, 2024 Full Review Pablo De Vita La Nación (Argentina) My Wife's Story unfolds with visual appeal, both in the historical formulation and in the beautiful photography, however, interest gradually declines after its decidedly brilliant beginning.
