Where is your car?
I don't have a car.
You don't have a car?
I sold it.
Well, what is the matter with you?
You come to pick me up and you don't have a car. That is not the way you pick up a person!
Yes, it is. I'm here. I'm picking you up.
Look, I really don't know about this. I think I'm making a pretty big mistake.

I saw this film on it's opening night and very much enjoyed it. The plot and its' details were original in a sense, and the casting was perfect. Keanu's character 'Henry' was quiet and thoughtful, one of those people who seems shy but is mostly pensive. Which is refreshing in a sense that each time he speaks, you know it's something of substance. His chemistry with Vera is perfectly suited and humorous. And of course, with James Caan's con character thrown into the mix, the audience is in for a treat. The film is well outlined and easy to follow, yet interesting and suspenseful at times. I'd highly recommend going to see it.
