The Way We Were

Tim Burton and Johnny Depp. Billy Wilder and Jack Lemmon. Ingmar Bergman and Max von Sydow. What do these directors and actors have in common? The names listed are all famed movie collaborations. Another one to add is Sydney Pollack and Robert Redford. Anyway, I'm reviewing one of the seven movies they've done together.

Katie Morosky (Barbra Streisand), a vocal Marxist Jew with strong anti-war opinions, first meets Hubbell Gardiner (Redford), a carefree WASP, at college in the 1930's. They meet again at the end of World War II and form a relationship. Their relationship begins to look shaky from Kate's political views.

I liked the movie, but some parts were weak. The work from Streisand and Redford were reasonably good. Overall, The Way We Were was not bad but not great.

My Rating: ****
