Some nice bits but very slow and poorly made
16 August 2002 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

Claire is a widower with a teenage daughter Cassie who runs a hotel with her mother in law, Ruth. Claire is trapped in an introspective world of mourning, Ruth longs for a man just to make her feel young again while Cassie is just discovering the world of sex and love. Into this mix comes a man who survived being thrown off a boat many miles out to sea. Adam settles in nicely but the men who thought he was dead are still after him.

I didn't have high hopes for this and it didn't let me down. The plot is very light despite the efforts to give it some drama with the crime subplot. However this subplot is a very damp squib indeed and climaxes with all the excitement and tension of a fart in a wet bag. The main story is the relationship between the three women and Adam, this is what should have made the film but this too is unconvincing for the most part. Adam affects them all in different ways and sparks things in each of them, however it is very sedentary and gets a bit dull after a while.

If the romance and the relationships had had a little more sparkle to them then it would have been a lot better, as it is only Dewhurst manages to bring some fire to her role but even then it seems very OTT and hammy in the middle of so much quietness. Moore is actually very good but only because he looks like he's got his tongue in his cheek the whole time with that constantly raised eyebrow! But he is nicely understated and doesn't make fun of the film so much as enjoy it's gentle pace. Oh – and how does he always manage to look 15 years younger than he is!?

Siemaszko is OK but has little to do but throw teenage strops etc. Shire meanwhile just takes it too seriously. This could have been a light romantic drama but instead she drags it's mood way down. She spends too much of the film sitting and staring into space looking sad. While Moore tries to be tanned and lively she just looks pale and sad. I know that her character demanded some of that in the role, but too much starts to sink the enjoyment a bit.

Overall I have to say that this is an average film that will probably only appeal to Moore complete-ists or those whose standard for entertainment starts and ends with daytime TV movies. It has a nice romantic, fun side to it but this edge is dulled by the majority of the film.
