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 have the home of a widely-read, widely-travelled, deeply interesting man with taste.
And that's not you.

Not even the interesting bit?

Martha (Monica Potter) is single, sexy and she's so sick of her life she's off to London with the last of her money.
Daniel (Tom Hollander) is single, successful and after one look at Martha he thinks he's in love. Frank (Rufus Sewell) is one of Daniel's friends, despite the fact he is always trying to get one up on him. Lawrence (Joseph Fiennes) is another of Daniel's friends, and he is always caught between Frank and Daniel as they jostle for supremacy.
The casing and script are both strong, and the feel of the movie is nice and original, even with the usual clichés in the romance element. It's funny, it's romantic and it has sex appeal for both men and ladies, so obviously its worth a watch; if you don't try it, you'll never know.
