Angelina (Emily Hampshire) is a shy and whimsical Italian waitress who has moved from Italy to Canada to fulfill a family vow by marrying a man she's not in love with. Angelina settles into a neighborhood in Toronto's Little Italy longing for true love. Mike (Sean Astin) is a jaded and cynical copywriter for romance novels but has lost his faith in romantic love. In the days leading up to Valentine's Day, an enigmatic and amorous couple named Il Magnifico (Joe Mantegna) and Mrs. Jones (Kate Nelligan) set the whole neighborhood ablaze with romantic passion. While everyone seems to be falling under the spell of Cupid's arrows, Angelina and Mike meet and just might find the true love that they've been searching for. Written by Adam McCort

An Imaginative Romance
28 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I own this movie and have watched it several times and intend to watch it many more times. It is very imaginative and off-the-wall at times. I recommend it only for romantics, specifically those who follow their hearts in romance.

My favorite scene is the stag party. The directing was fantastic throughout the movie but especially in this scene. The men at the party were all in tune with their movements and expressions. Most of them did not have speaking parts but their collective energy through the music focused on the two dancers. One of them in particular stood out with his unique antics that enhanced the cohesiveness of the group.

The flavor of the movie is definitely Italian. One is continually educated in the customs of Italy throughout the movie. No matter what heat or coldness occurs between the characters, the movie emits a warmth that any romantic loves to bask in.
