Johnny + Matty = ?
23 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bogart and Bacall? No, but this couple is down-to-earth. They're immediately appealing.

I've read the previous reviews, and had to laugh at the description of the daughter's relationship being like having something strange on your plate at the restaurant, and how it's distracting. Yes, I admit, it was distracting. But it was distracting in a *good* way.

Jurgen Delnaet played Johnny, and was (according to my DVD case), "the hot young lover." Um, yeah, OK. Well, I wouldn't call him that, but he does become sexier as you get to know him, despite his obvious flaws. And Matty, played by Barbara Sarafian, never failed to fascinate me, the way her smile transformed her from sad and worn out to vibrant.

I liked this movie. The characters felt familiar despite their foreign language and environment, I cared about them, and I recommend it.
