Trivia

The main character's name is 'Adan' Kundle but it was originally 'Adam'. Producers had to change it midway through filming (not sure why) and all the references up to that point had to be dubbed over. It's covered by clever editing most places but can be noticed a couple of times. See more »

9 May 2013 | by See all my reviews

I seriously don't understand why it has such a low rating. It's funny - the dialog. The characters are quit simple and maybe some will say it is over acted - don't know if that is proper English - but it is not overdone - i think it is clever and well executed by both actors and the whole team around it. It made me smile and i found it heartwarming, its about people connecting without (in some way) not speaking the same language. Plus Bruce Greenwood/Adan - for an older person :-) - he is quit cute in this movie. I liked the 'chemistry' between him and the leading lady Parker Posey/Karen.

If you want to watch something good/sweet/entertaining/funny, lay back, enjoy and feel happy at the end. Its not a 'fast' story, but i think the pace the film is in suits the story and character of the film.
