Hi, I've been trying to remember the name of this movie about a couple who go on a vacation to meet up with an estranged friend who the wife used to date.  The couple owns a restaurant or a bakery and they meet up with the friend, I think, at his vacation house potentially in Italy.  As the movie unfolds you learn that they were all three good friends and the wife used to date the estranged friend.  There's a scene - I think the wife and friend are in the pool - and they are talking about why they didn't end up together and how he was kind of aimless or something like that.  At some point they have sex.  At the end of the movie, the couple are driving away and they stop and it's clear that the husband knows they had sex but it's not verbalized, I don't think.  It's very emotional but it seems they are going to stay together.  It was on Netflix around 2013.  It's a very artsy looking movie...lots of lush green scenery.  Very emotional and dramatic.  Thanks so much!!!

Hi Yishai,

In order to try to help, could you provide further leads, like the nationality of the film, potential actors/actress, other plot tips... ?

Yes!  I'm almost positive it's an American film.  The three main characters are all white, unfortunately I don't know potential actors... I think they husband had an ethan hawke look to him (not ethan hawke, though).  The friend had darker features.  The whole film was pretty much set on this villa.  I think the only other person around was another lover of the friend that seemed to be from the area potentially Italian or Greece.  The whole plot revolves aroung this couple arriving at the villa, they haven't seen this friend for a long time.... apparently they were all close in college maybe.  The couple has since opened a restaurant or bakery and it's been tough.  They reunite with the friend, the passion between the wife and the friend is still there and he is provocative with her, and she says this is why we didn't work because you never had a plan or weren't reliable or something to that effect.  They still end up having a surge of passion and sleeping together.  I think there is an image of a wine glass spilling maybe.  The ending scene is something like the couple driving away from the vacation and they pull over and look at each other and he knows the wife cheated and they're emotional but they realize that they're ready to go back to their life.

It could be something from mainstream 1960's or 1970's... or have you a better idea of the release period?

Definitely more contemporary. 2000’s but my guess would be post-2010, though not positive. I watched it around 2013-14 and it seemed to be current.

The characters were probably early thirties in age.
