Well, the beginning of Eternal is hard to watch.  You see people
screaming at each other.  It's like having noisy neighbours.  But then
it goes back to when they first met.  As I recall, the movie ended
abruptly without a definite answer to the question of whether they were
going to get back together.  Maybe it was supposed to be left as an
exercise for the veiwer: we saw where they started and we saw where
they ended up.  Do these two people belong together or not?  Most
movies about couples end with a make up kiss and we're supposed to
believe that things go on happily ever after so maybe this was a more
realistic take on relationships.  Or maybe the writer just couldn't
think of a better way to end the movie.  Of course, you never go that
far so I guess you can't comment about that. :)
