Laurence recounts to his neighbour how his life long friendship with Frank and Daniel has been overturned in just three days by their each independently meeting, and falling for, Martha, who has no idea of their connection. Slowly the tale unfolds, the narrative moving backwards and forwards gradually filling in the gaps until we see the whole picture. Written by
When Martha and Daniel meet at the curb outside the airport, there is an extra carrying a large gray bag. He is walking away, going to Daniel's right.
When Martha and Daniel begin talking the same extra (minus the bag) is walking away from Martha, going the opposite direction he was before. The camera cuts to Daniel and then back to Martha and the extra has disappeared completely. See more »
I will agree that this film was predictable in some ways, but had a few strategically placed plot twists that made up for it. Monica Potter is beautiful, funny and charming as the object of three lifelong friends' affection. I liked Joseph Fiennes in Shakespeare In Love but he's absolutely wonderful here. I didn't think he and Gwyneth Paltrow shared much chemistry in Shakespeare but here he has a warm and special chemistry with Ms. Potter. It really looks like they are in love, and I love the way when he repeated his ideal of the perfect woman, they filled in the gaps.
This is an underrated but enjoyable romance, along the lines of Sliding Doors.
