Falling in Love

Ulu Grosbard (1984)

PG Certificate


Our Score
Robert De Niro and Meryl Streep are such dramatic heavyweights that it's difficult to see them as ordinary people involved in a typical affair. Yet this light romance succeeds thanks to their subtle performances as the separately married Manhattan commuters (architect Frank and graphic artist Molly) whose daily contact becomes mutual obsession. Ulu Grosbard's rather stilted direction is a hindrance, but De Niro and Streep, reunited for the first time after the award-winning success of The Deer Hunter, more than compensate.


Two married people meet by chance while Christmas shopping, and months later encounter each other again when they catch the same train. As time goes by, their friendship turns into romance - but both remain aware that they cannot risk breaking up their marriages. Romantic drama, with Robert De Niro, Meryl Streep, Harvey Keitel and Dianne Wiest.
