Dana, a young American woman traveling on business in Jerusalem, meets a mysterious older French woman at a café who shares a fascinating story of lost love revolving around the expensive antique ruby pin she's wearing. The woman exits the café abruptly, leaving the pin behind and Dana, who is on her way to meet her fiancé in London, finds herself forced to reschedule her trip - and her life - as an unexpected but expected stranger crosses her path. Or has he already?Written by
I must admit, I only saw the first 20 minutes, and the last 5 minutes. The plot was SO predictable. Ten minutes in, I asked my fellow viewer (who had seen it) does X happen and Y turn out to be Z? And I was right 100%.
It was, without mincing words, awful.
Specifically, the score was horrific and made me laugh at points. The acting of the main character, Dana, was one-dimensional -- she went around with this dull, "what the hell is going on" look on her face.
But the worst part was the vomit-inducing camera work. Scenes start with a medium two shot, and then zoom into one character, pan left, and then zoom out again to a two shot. It looked like the camera operator and director were having a great time playing with the zoom button on their dad's new camcorder.
If you want to see some sickly sweet love story, find something with Karen Valentine on Lifetime.
