An Almost Perfect Affair
6 April 2000 | by (Budapest, Hungary) – See all my reviews

A young and idealistic American independent filmmaker falls in love with an Italian producer's worldly wife at the Cannes Film Festival.

Gently appealing romance with lively detail and locations... but not very interesting, mainly due to the over-familiar and inconsequential plot.
