Storyline

Nico Rinaldi gets Dr. Matthew Heller to see his wife Silvia, born D'Alessandro, privately, about a tumor. This stirs doc's memory how they met 15 years before, as young medical idealists, postulating for a relief expedition to (ficticious) civil war-ravaged Gomba in black Africa. After an Amsterdam prep course from Dr. François Francois, who warned they'll age a lot in year, the Chicago laborer's son and Italian industrialist's daughter left for man-made hell in the tropics.

Pleasant - But Overly Long - Entertainment
31 October 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

My wife and I watched the film over two nights and wish it had been cut by an hour or so. The padding that is too often part of made-for-TV movies was all too obvious and, by the end, we were getting very tired of Sylvia's clinging and the 'meaningful' looks. The film belongs to Marisa Tomei and, to a lesser extent to Rob Morrow who create engaging characters who save the film from its plot excesses. We had only seen Tomei once previously, in 'My Cousin Vinny'. We recognize that many found her work in that movie very funny, but we thought her character was annoying at best. Her portrayal of Evie in 'Only Love' is refreshing. Honorable Mentions to Paul Freeman (who we know from 'Monarch of the Glen')and Jeroen Krabbé ('Prince of Tides' and 'The Fugitive') who salvaged characters who would have been hopelessly stereotypical in lesser hands.
