Shaw refers to killing his wife's lover as a "crime of passion" and explains that "under [England's] quaint legal system" he got away scot-free. The courts of England & Wales do not recognize "crimes of passion" (though many other European court systems do), although it may have been accepted as mitigating circumstances and have possibly contributed to a reduced sentence due to diminished responsibility. Shaw would still have been looking at a lengthy jail sentence for manslaughter, at best. See more »


Frank Taylor: I'm sorry!
Elise: What for?
Frank Taylor: Aha! Oh do you mind me smoking, it's not a real cigarette, look! It delivers the same amount of nicotine, but the smoke is water vapor.
Elise: That's somewhat disappointing.
Frank Taylor: Would you rather have me smoking?
Elise: I'd rather you be a man who does exactly as he pleases.

How Can It Possibly Be?
12 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was looking forward to "The Tourist" Depp and Jolie in a "Charade" like romp. Well, not such luck. Seems as if the director has never even seen a Stanley Donen movie. Not a single moment of fun. Not one! Angelina Jolie behaves like a first time model wearing dresses that were meant for someone else. Atrocious is the word that comes to mind. I haven't been this embarrassed for actor since Vince Vaughn as Norman Bates in the remake of "Psycho" Her lines and her delivery are worthy of an amateur, and the script? Goodness, gracious, me! How can this possibly be? Even Venice looks banal. Depp manages a couple of moments but doesn't look well as if we were looking at the movie in the wrong ratio. 15 $ a ticket. I'm so mad! Glimpses of famous (in Italy) Italian actors including Alessio Boni (from The Best Of Youth) add to the depression I felt sitting through this. They must have thought "a big Hollywood movie with Jolie, Depp and the director of "The Lives Of Others" what a break! Well I was fooled myself. Unforgivable!
