Trivia

When Matthew meets Luke in the theater to watch Alex, the usher would never have let anyone in once the performance started. See more »

Goofs

On the card that Luke gave Matthew, the number for Dragon Lady Shoes was 555 0123. However, when Lisa calls (and Matthew's in the shower) you can see the number on the painted windows of the shop, and it clearly states the number 555 0142 (or 555 0145). This is not the same as the card number. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Jeweller: [holding a diamond ring] Magnificent, aren't they? "God's tears".
Matthew: Yeah. It's beautiful. So are the others, I... I guess I just have to make the right decision.
Jeweller: In the end it's not your eye that must decide.

The best Romantic Thriller ever
15 December 2005 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Have watched this film numerous times and it just keeps getting better every time. Have never seen L'Apartment but it must be some film if it's anything like this. I must say that you don't get this kind of film made very often and frankly this film has changed my life. The soundtrack suits the action brilliantly and who ever worked on the score deserves some major credit. Before I thought Josh Hartnett was as wooden as affleck and other such actors but he show here how good he can be, but Rose Byrne really made the film and I don't know where she's from or what she did before but she buts on one of the performances of the decade in this film. In conclusion this film is brilliant and anyone who says otherwise just didn't get it.
