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.

Agree -- better than expected!
26 December 2004 | by See all my reviews

I hadn't heard of this film before seeing it, but I was pleasantly surprised. It was suspenseful, even "gripping", with a touching and romantic plot. Overall, a movie definitely worth renting.

The film begins a bit slowly but picks up very nicely about 30 minutes into it. There are a few twists and turns that will keep your attention. The acting was quite good, albeit with little-known actors except for Josh Hartnett of Blackhawk Down.

The best part of this film was the clever way the story all comes together towards the end, including the flashback style which was very well done.
