Uptight American businesswoman meets quirky, eccentric Irishman!
12 March 2004 | by (PA) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie and I LOVED it. From the moment I saw Hugo De Lacey (Daniel Massey), I loved him. Loved his sense of humor and dry wit. Daniel Massey delivers most of the humor in this movie, and he does it well. He also speaks Italian with such ease that the viewer wonders if he truly knows the language (no stutters or simple phrases - we're talking complicated dialogue w/flawless accent). At first, he comes across as a "kook" but as the movie progresses, he emerges as quite the romantic leading man. Marilu Henner is wonderful as Victoria, a widow who now treats her very successful business like a marriage to minimize her loneliness. She's made no plans to fall in love, but by accident, meets Hugo and her life won't ever be the same.

This is one of my favorite romantic movies - lighthearted, sweet, and definitely worth watching again. I still watch it when I get the chance. In fact, I purchased it before watching it and haven't regretted it. The scenery is wonderful, taking the viewer through Florence. Now I am convinced there IS such a thing as "Love at first sight."
