Storyline

Carmen, a beautiful Spanish woman with a tendency to lose her temper at the drop of a hat, is about to be married to Barnaby, a caring, wealthy, but slightly boring Englishman. While out with friends on her 'hen night' she encounters a stranger who suddenly sparks a passion that has been sleeping within her. As her wedding date approaches, she finds herself struggling to put this newcomer out of her mind, but his effect on her keeps growing stronger. What is it that he sees in her, and why does she feel like she's being pushed inevitably into his arms? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Surprisingly Great Unknown Movie
29 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

In London, in a French restaurant, the Spanish Carmen Colazzo (Natalia Verbeke) is celebrating with her girlfriends her next wedding with the wealthy British Barnaby R. Caspian (James D'Arcy). On her table, sit the Brazilian Kit Winter (Gael García Bernal) with his handy camera and two friends, and following a French tradition, Carmen warmly kisses Kit, and they have a crush on each other. This is the beginning of a delightful movie, full of secrets, mysteries and plot points.

Yesterday I saw "Dot the I" with the recommendation of a friend of mine. I was expecting to see a usual triangle of love romance, but I found a surprisingly great-unknown movie, full of twists. Inclusive there is a silly last scene in the middle of the credits. Although Gael García Bernal has no biotype of Brazilian, he shows a fantastic chemistry with the delicious and sexy Natalia Verbeke. James D'Arcy is amazing in the role of the cynical Barnaby. The intriguing, passionate and provocative story was the wonderful surprise of my weekend. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Jogo de Sedução" ("Seduction Game")
