Enchanting doesn't even begin to describe this film....
5 February 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Romantic, thought provoking and encouraging film with Intelligence and good humour. This film for me delivered from every angle in every different way, the cast were terrific, the scenery was mind blowing and the chemistry between the characters was like no other of this genre. It would have been very easy for Joshua Jackson to feel intimidated by Harvey Keitel, but instead brought out of him his best performance to date. Claire Forlani also delivered an awesome performance with a great Italian accent, after seeing her in Meet Joe Black and The Shadow Dancer it's hard to believe she was born in the UK.

Truly Magnificent, not to be missed by anyone.
