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 <>

Intriguing as well as captivating British/Spanish co-production plenty with good actors , twists and turns
6 August 2014 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

Carmen (Natalia Verbeke) , a gorgeous Spanish girl with a dark past , is about to be married to Barnaby Caspian (James D'Arcy), a good-looking but slightly boring Englishman . While out with other women on her 'hen night' she meets a Brazilian young called Kit (Gael Garcia Bernal) holding his handy camera along with his two friends (Tom Hardy , Charlie Cox) and then following a French tradition she warmly kisses him ; later on , Carmen falls in love for him . As young lovers in London are wrapped up in a love triangle that may not be exactly what it seems . As her wedding date approaches, she finds herself struggling to put this newcomer out of her mind, full of secrets as well as mysteries , but his effect on her keeps growing stronger and danger is in the details.

Drama/Romance/intrigue movie ; the picture begins as a triangular drama and finishes as a thrilling story about a strange trio and their twisted relationship among them , filled with lasting images , delightful interpretations , style , slow moving and plot twists . It is an exciting film displaying suspense , intrigue , plot points , a touching love story , nudism and interesting drama well written by the same filmmaker Matthew Parkhill . In ¨Dot the I¨ , we see a surprisingly thoughtful approach to an otherwise tiring premise, one we're confident audiences will be well gripped into a peculiar romance and a twisted intrigue . Likable acting by Natalia Verbeke as a beautiful woman with a tendency to lose her temper at the drop of a hat , James D'Arcy as a caring, wealthy young and Gael Garcia Bernal as a stranger who suddenly sparks a passion that has been sleeping within her and they have a deep crush on each other . Nice support cast such as two formerly unknown actors : Tom Hardy and Charlie Cox .

Colorful and evocative cinematography by Alfonso Beato , being completely shot in London . Atmospherical musical score by Javier Navarrete , including a spectacular 'Andalucia dance' carried out by Natalia Verbeke at a Flamenco Tablao . This passionate motion picture was well directed by Matthew Parkhill who even appears a cameo as doctor giving bad news in the hospital and the name of the hospital at the ending is "Parkhill Hospital". Matthew Parkhill is a writer and producer, known for (2003), Rogue (2013) and Romeo Thinks Again (1998) and especially this ¨El Punto Sobre la I¨ or ¨Dot the I¨ . Rating : Better than average , worthwhile watching .
