It's a light romantic comedy. Nothing more, nothing less. The main character is well defined and has her issues that are apparent from the moment the movie starts. Still the symbols and meanings are very heavy (not only a sign that has to be put up or not) and are almost only a delay of the inevitable.

The actors do their best with a story that has more sub-stories than it can actually handle. There's also some minor nudity, just in case you thought a romantic comedy won't allow for such a thing. So while the movie tries to reach high, it never fully achieves that goal. If you are into those movies, you might still wanna risk a look
