Redford is outstanding, particularly adept in light comedy. Fonda is excellent, ditto Natwick, her mother. A genuine surprise casting is Boyer, as the Bohemian who lives in the attic above the newlyweds’ top-floor flat. With only one slight flagging pace – about 30 minutes from the end, when Redford and Fonda have their late-night squabble – pic moves along smartly.
