Perhaps I expected too much, what with handsome and likable Matthias Schloo as one of the leads, and the Bruges setting. Given the really weak story, it's up to the actors to save the day. But the heroine looked rather tired and washed out, almost old most of the time, and the love interest she ends up with is so much less attractive than Schloo's character (who turns out to be a bit of a villain). He, that is the guy who gets the girl, is supposed to be a rich, handsome and charming South American, but the part the actor would actually be perfect for is "sleazy Middle Easterner". I'm amazed to read he was born in Berlin, his German sounds rather weird. Sorry, but I can't take anyone seriously who pronounces e.g. "romantisch" like "romantich". German speakers will know what I mean. All in all, a sad waste. Schade!
