Storyline

Jenny Seagrove plays a widow who is defying her friends attempts to find her a new parter. Charles Dance is part of her circle of friends and decides that he is the one for her. He is also in the fortunate position that he is her dentist who just happens to use hypnosis on his patients. Having no luck using conventional methods to win her affections, he resorts to hypnosis which has unforseen and amusing results. Antony Edwards is a failing sports psychologist who gets caught up in the events through a series of chance meetings and the unpredictable results of the hypnosis.

I am not fan of romantic comedies. but "Do not go breaking my heart" is more than a romantic comedy. it is a smart, generous, sensitive, touching and example of beautiful humor film. remembering Woody Allen films, it has, as the first virtue, the right cast. Jenny Seagrove escapes from the frame of Barbara Taylor Bradford adaptations and gives a great character. Anthony Edwards is far by other roles - the mark of ER is the most heavy - for do the ordinary guy who becomes the best choice for a single mother. and Charles Dance is the inspired choice for a role who represents the basic spice of story. a soup for soul is one of good definitions for this film. and that could be a virtue . because, among the films from the same genre, it is not only different but real charming.
