Storyline

Vanessa Stewart is a beautiful American woman engaged to be married. Vanessa is an artist and is also a buyer for her father's company. She goes to Venice on a business trip and meets television reporter Bill Fitzgerald from Ireland. They fall madly in love in the four days they are in Venice. Vanessa realizes, because of him that she would rather be an artist than a business person. She comes back to the States, and he invites her to meet in Ireland. There she meets his mother and daughter. Vanessa comes back to the U.S. and breaks her engagement. Bill and Vanessa are supposed to meet again in Venice. Bill is on assignment in a war zone and is kidnaped by looters. There is a ransom to be paid, but nobody shows up to get the ransom money... Written by Rosemea D. S. MacPherson

Goofs

When Vanessa arrives at Bill's house in Dublin and gets the key from under the mat, she enters from the outside, when she turns to close the door you see a curtain or cloth hanging behind her, not the street, the same curtain is still there when Bill comes in later and calls to Vanessa as he comes through the door.

Wonderful & Endearing
2 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie for the first time recently, it is one of those that you can watch over and over again, nice romantic, get away movie. Paudgh Behan although it is not an acting feat he should be in more of these movies, he really is good. He makes a wonderful leading man for the romantic drama'a for a TV movie he made the character very believable and one that can make you feel that there are still good guys left around. Janine Turner is her usual wonderful self, I have enjoyed her in pretty much everything she has been in. The only problem with this movie is that it is not long enough, this could easily been a mini-series, they had to cover to much in a TV movie time frame. Helena's part was played by the wonderful Sarah Bolger, she is always a charm to watch. There are a couple of bloopers that are discreet, there are probably more the two I noticed are when Vanessa arrives in Dublin first and goes into the house from outside when she closes the door behind her, there is a curtain hanging up, it is still there when Bill arrives, the other is when Bill is shot, the bottoms of his shoes are perfectly clean, he most have put them on that morning!

Even though it has been 8 years would love to see a follow up just as romantic with Bill, Vanessa & Helena as a family of course Bill's mother, possibly with a child of their own. We need more movies like this they just make us feel good and in this day in time that is something we can all use!
