Storyline

A two-part film, actually two concurrent stories, that reveals the dissolution of an 18-year marriage from two points of view. The stories are set in Rome, where the wealthy Martin and Jane Reynolds meet by chance after a two-year separation. In the first of the two stories, Martin has returned to Rome on business, representing an African managerial firm. Martin remembers his marriage as a rather sado-masochistic union. Part two examines the marriage from Jane's point of view, focusing more on the family life, on how the children have been scarred by the crumbling marriage. Written by alfiehitchie

Trivia

Although set in Rome, this was originally set to be filmed on Bristol. The Burtons' tax advisors decided that Germany had a better tax regime, so the production ended up lensing in Munich. See more »

Really boring
19 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

At the time, it was fun to watch every Liz and Dick movie they made together, but knowing they were divorced in 1974, it's not enjoyable to watch a movie in 1973 in which they play a couple in the midst of a terrible divorce. I'd skip Divorce His – Divorce Hers if I were you.

This is one of those movies that pretty much takes place over the course of a few days, but constantly flashes back in time. Usually, I find that kind of story annoying, and this movie is no exception. Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton play a bickering, tired, estranged couple who are getting ready to finalize their divorce. Liz has custody of their three children, and each of them are in different stages in anger towards their father. But, none of the kids are particularly likable, so my heart was not tugged in their direction. Liz acts like an understudy; if this was the first movie of hers you saw you'd think she was a lousy actress. Dick is plain cranky, like they've filmed too many takes and he just wants to go home. The script is boring. The so-called surprises are hardly worth the build-ups, and the arguments lack fire, punch, and interest. The pace is slow, and it's not even enjoyable for fans who wish an inside view of what went wrong with the famous couple's marriages. The characters are obviously dissimilar to their offscreen personas. Just skip it. Watch Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? instead.
