Slowly the tale unfolds, the narrative moving backwards and forwards gradually filling in the gaps until we see the whole picture.Written by

When Martha and Daniel meet at the curb outside the airport, there is an extra carrying a large gray bag. He is walking away, going to Daniel's right.
When Martha and Daniel begin talking the same extra (minus the bag) is walking away from Martha, going the opposite direction he was before. The camera cuts to Daniel and then back to Martha and the extra has disappeared completely. See more »
And one of the rooms they called it the library and they filled it full of books. Thousands of books on every subject and they're all second-hand. You know why?

I happened to flick across the beginning of this film last night on cable. I missed the title, but saw "Joesph Fiennes", "Rufus Sewell", and "Ray Winstone" - and decided it was worth a look.
Though the beginning was a tad slow (the first five minutes makes you think it's going to be very depressing), this is actually a sweet comedy about love and friendship and the nature of "love at first sight".
Joesph Fiennes is heart-stoppingly beautiful, with his lovely puppy-dog eyes put to good use in his character as an overly-sensitive young man wedged between two aggressive friends who are less-than-sensitive.
I dislike most "romance" films; yet this one was different, for a reason I can't quite put my finger on. It tugs at your heart, and for all it's improbable situations (de rigeur in most romantic comedy), it rings true to life.
Definitely a good film for watching on a rainy afternoon.
