Storyline

How important is the truth when falling in love? Bella is a Manhattan café waitress, about to turn 35, stuck in a long-term affair going nowhere. Paul is a widower, facing old age alone. Bella's mother sets her up with Bruno, a novelist/cabbie who likes to bed-hop and whose ex-wife expects their two children to stay with him for awhile. While Bruno learns some maturity from his young daughter, Paul answers a personals ad placed by a "widow, 60." The two couples - along with one of Paul's older pals and a Jungian stripper - sort out how to initiate a relationship these days, what to do when someone you like disappoints you, and when to tell the truth.

a warm film
22 December 2000 | by (Antwerp) – See all my reviews

This is just a sweet film. I think that if you don't like it because it's too mellow, you should ask yourself if you haven't grown to be too cynical.

All the people that normally only see trash as "Sleepless in Seattle" should see it. The film is romantic but not sticky, intelligent but not arrogant...

The performance of Anna Thomson (or Anna Levine as she is called here) is simply heartwarming. all the movie through, you never realise that this lovely Bella-character is an actress.
