Leap year - for fans of romantic comedy
2 June 2010 | by (Serbia) – See all my reviews

The latest film directed by Enanda Tucker certainly gives not so much false hope that romance and romantic moments still exist. In this really interesting film, the young actors Amy Adams and Matthew Goode certainly separates us from stress and harsh reality, and even in the hour and a half, give some hope in love. That is, I guess, and the essence of the film - and beautiful illusion, which is all we surrender! Ana is a haughty and self-confident woman (Amy Adams in the interpretation, which we know from the great movie Catch Me If You Can) lives a seemingly perfect life. Doing his job arranger, in connection with the young and successful cardiologist, and after a long connection, expect from your chosen that proposes ... But is it really happy?

When you see that the proposal does not have anything at the moment, decided to adventure: to go from Boston to Dublin (Ireland) and proposes her boyfriend there, leading to the old Irish customs!

However, rather than to surprise her boyfriend force unforeseen circumstances, it comes in a small town in Ireland and here, in a restaurant, is introduced to Declan, its opposite - cold and rough young men in the interpretation of the English actor Matthew Goody. So, the adventure can begin ...

Full of comical scenes, original dialogue and great acting, the film looks really full attention. As for the music theme, give special charm to the story. Particularly interesting is the appearance of actor John Lithgow, whom we know from a TV-series of Third rock from the sun. All events, of course, difficult to actually do happen, but it is not important? Because these films exist, and because they sometimes must leave.

If there is a list of 100 the most romantic movies of all time, Lap year would be entered in the top ten for sure.
