I saw this movie a long time ago and have it on tape. I notice that not too many commented on it, so I'd put in my 2 cents. The movie is basically about a girl who vows revenge for her father's death. Unfortunately, the killer is someone she loves. The whole concept of the mafia is a little lax in this film. There's really no violence on their part, just close family and loyalty. The whole film garners a romantic presence despite the title. All in all, not a bad film. If you like Carol Alt and Eric Roberts, then this is the film for you. Roberts delivers as usual as Sean. He's mysterious and dangerous, but likeable enough as a male lead. See it just for kicks when nothing else is on. The music in the movie is also pretty soothing.
