As a teen, Faith was told that her destiny is a man named Damon Bradley. Years later - Faith is about to marry another man - a Damon Bradley calls to wish them all the best. Faith blows off the wedding and follows Damon to Italy.
Destiny. Faith (Marisa Tomei) believes that two soul-mates can be united if they find each other. From the Ouija board, she has found the name of her missing half, and it is D-A-M-O-N B-R-A-D-L-E-Y. Later, at the carnival, the fortune teller sees the name Damon Bradley in the Crystal Ball and Faith is convinced. She is told that "You make your own destiny,...don't wait for it to come to you", but she is looking for Damon. 14 years later, she is engaged to a dull podiatrist and plans to marry until she gets a call from one of his classmates who is on his way to Venice, Italy. The classmate is Damon Bradley. Rushing to the airport to see her soul-mate, she misses him and the plane, but decides, then and there, to go after him. So Faith and her sister-in-law Kate both board the next plane for Italy hoping to find her Damon.Written by

When Damon and Faith finally meet, they make plans to meet at the restaurant at 8:30. When she runs down the stairs to meet him, we hear a bell tower chiming multiple times. Presumably, it is either 8:00 or 9:00. See more »
What a beautifully photographed travelogue of Italy! Cinematographer Sven Nykvist captured gorgeous shot after gorgeous shot. Oh, yes, the movie. Pure fluff. Marisa Tomei is pretty, and carries off her part well. Robert Downey, Jr., while apparently a low-quality individual, is nonetheless a high-quality actor. I found Bonnie Hunt particularly charming. The film did have a certain amount of charm, and the actors did a good job given the limitations of the script. Worth catching on cable.
