Storyline

Best friends Bert and Taylor, who are twenty-something American college students, are spending their summer driving around Italy and France in an older model Puegeot purchased in Italy, before heading back to the States in September for school. Taylor is the straight-laced, reliable one, who admits that he has problems expressing his feelings, especially to women, while Bert is the smooth talking player. They only have a general idea of where they will go and what they will do, but hoping that they can have some casual female companionship at their various stops. In Florence, they do one better when Taylor meets Marty, a ex-pat Brit living in Paris, he who believes she is a kindred spirit. As such, he suggests to Bert that they ask her along on the remainder of their trip, she to pay her fair share, and if things don't work out that they will part company with no hard feelings. Although both Taylor and Bert think she attractive, they also make a pact not to complicate the situation by... Written by Huggo

A gentle and well told tale of youthful ideals and yearning
9 April 2002 | by morrowmmmSee all my reviews

This film wears well since the story is an age old one. So nice to see the young Sam Waterston and Charlotte Rampling in very picturesque european locations.What happened to Robie Porter? Two male friends in Europe meet a beautiful English girl who then travels with them on their summer tour (many young Americans did this in the sixties in Europe) One, Sam Waterston, is an idealist about love, falling for Rampling, but keeping a promise to his friend that everything has to be kept platonic for the three to survive as a group. Rampling needs the attractive company but also wants a physical relationship which Porter, at the end, gives to her. Waterston realises the magic of the threesome is broken and gives up the the romantic thoughts of studying in Paris and breaks away to return home. Thoughtful and well told, more through subtle actions than words.
