5x2 is a 2004 French film directed by François Ozon. The film has been compared to Memento and Irréversible, since it is shown in reverse chronology. It also could be compared to the Off Broadway musical, The Last Five Years, for its similar plotline.

Plot

The story focuses on a young couple, Gilles and Marion in their 30's, filmed in five crucial moments of their life together: the meeting, marriage, birth of their first child, arguments and divorce. However, those are told in reverse order. Each moment is separated by an Italian song with evocative lyrics. Overall, it is a pessimistic life lesson about the difficulties of living as a couple.
