When English Mark surprises his American bride Holly with her dream honeymoon to Portugal she cant believe her luck. Mark goes to great trouble to organise everything for her. They arrive in Portugal to discover that the country is hosting a major international soccer tournament and that the English national team is playing! Whats more, the England team, and their raucous fans, seem to follow them everywhere. Soccer-loving Mark claims innocence - a complete coincidence - after all, what kind of man would lie to his new wife just to watch England play in a tournament? Gradually, Holly is forced to consider that perhaps her husband could be just such a man. Marks odd behaviour, their whirlwind romance and her fathers money (that paid for the trip) all begin to add to a terrible conclusion. The games intensify, the subterfuge deepens and cracks develop. Mark denies everything, but what has he done? How can he prove that he really loves her? The film captures the passion, drama and ... Written by
It's unusual to leave the movie theatre feeling cheerful and laughing and this is how you feel after seeing The Other Half. You sympathise with the hero throughout - you're on his side and want it all to work out for him. His passion for football is the driving force of the film. This is a first film for both Richard Nockles and Marlowe Fawcett and they needed more time and money to work on the script and the supporting roles, but the music, graphics and photography are terrific. Well worth seeing especially if you like feel-good romance and football (or any sport for that matter). And well worth backing the directors on their next project.
