A grief-stricken mother takes on the LAPD to her own detriment when it stubbornly tries to pass off an obvious impostor as her missing child, while also refusing to give up hope that she will find him one day.
Elise (Angelina Jolie) sits next to an American tourist, Frank (Johnny Depp), on a train going to Venice. She has chosen him as a decoy, making believe that he is her lover who is wanted by police. Not only will they need to evade the police, but also the mobster whose money her lover stole. Written by

The Palazzo Pisani-Moretta was used as a "stand-in" for the real Hotel Danieli. See more »
Shaw's goons clearly have little experience or training with using firearms, as they all attempt to fire their handguns at arm's length without bracing the firing hand, and without even sighting down the length of the barrel. See more »
Great, fun, Glam, lighthearted... worth the watch !!!
I thought it was going to be terrible, I'd heard that. I was even advised in Blockbusters that it wasn't great. What a fabulous surprise, I watched it twice. I think it is brilliant, it is just light hearted, and watchable. They do have chemistry, as I noted someone else said they didn't and they look great - someone else said they looked awful. As if! But you know they are not 21 ! The whole thing is fun, and the combo of Depp and Jolie is magnificent.. It is rather like a light hearted better bond film, I love the setting in Italy, the English accents, the American. I Love the way Depp portrays himself as a Maths Teacher, humble and vulnerable and smitten. I think Jolie is brilliant her character professional and intelligent, and I love the line 'you are the least down to earth person I've ever met'
