A Perfect Man 

Can this marriage be saved, asks this rom-com set in Amsterdam

Jeanne Tripplehorn and Liev Schrieber star in this semi-serious rom-com in which an American married couple living in Amsterdam breaks up and then ponders the whys and hows of getting back together. Kees Van Oostrum's film is reminiscent of a European film, in which the action takes place only in a rarefied world of well-dressed, affluent intellectuals who live in simply fabulous spaces. Pretty to look at, but I'm not sure that even the hard-working actors sold me the story: Its questions of "what men/women want" were answered only in the flimsiest of clich├ęs, and none of this was frothy enough to paper over what looked like a rightfully busted marriage and deliver something satisfying.
