"What a strange crazy trip...."
11 January 2000 | by (California) – See all my reviews

From the appearance of the mysterious woman in the cafe to the 2 lovers standing in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, I was spellbound by this film. Although the acting on the part of the female lead was not world-class, she did manage to convey the shock and tortured emotions of her character. This film seemed to make use of an almost mythological concept of Fate, where humans are simply pawns in the hands of the gods. People can be fated to be together, and nothing will be able to stop them. It is so with this film. When Dana is left with a butterfly pin in an Israeli cafe, she travels to Paris to find its owner. A kind jewelry store owner leaves it in the front window in the hopes that the owner might see it. As she has to travel to London to meet her fiance, Dana sees a movie poster for the white cliffs of Dover. There she meets and falls in love with a painter named Sean. The mention of Dover and the song become a recurring motif in the film. Characters at the dinner party, namely Vanessa Redgrave, consider it a sign that everything would turn out all right. I enjoyed Redgrave's performance immensely, especially when she advised everyone to "jump into life!" All of the strange coincidences with the pictures and chance meetings of individuals present the characters with definite choices. Do they favor the steady, predicatable life with their fiance or do they see they take their chance with their man across the room, their mysterious man in the car? I think that this film can be applicable to everyone. If we all take that chance that we feel is right, that one decision that will change our lives forever-then at least we will have lived life fully. I do not care to spoil the end of this film, so I will simply call it "picture-perfect," and recommend it to anyone who wishes to see something different.
