LE WEEK-END

THURS­DAY, 9pm, Chan­nel 4

In Roger Mitchell’s comic drama, a Bri­tish cou­ple on a trip to Paris must con­front their mar­riage’s loss of spark.

Nick and Meg Bur­rows are aca­demics from Birm­ing­ham, ad­vanc­ing in age and ten­sion.

To mark their 30th wed­ding an­niver­sary, the two em­bark on a hol­i­day to the place they hon­ey­mooned three decades be­fore.

How­ever, once in the French cap­i­tal, things do not go as planned.

There is not much to rein­vig­o­rate this pair in Hanif Kureishi’s un­con­vinc­ing script, but the ac­tors play­ing them, Jim Broad­bent and Lind­say Duncan, pro­vide their own vi­tal­ity.
