I loved this film
12 June 2002 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I thought this film was the best thing I've ever seen. It had everything; suspense, romance, comedy. It made me laugh, it made me cry. If I think about it I can't fault this film on any count. The acting was superb, the photography was just delightful, and the direction was assured. And may I take this opportunity to say that even the trailer was wonderful Masterpiece 10/10 Bravo.
