Storyline

Carmen, a beautiful Spanish woman with a tendency to lose her temper at the drop of a hat, is about to be married to Barnaby, a caring, wealthy, but slightly boring Englishman. While out with friends on her 'hen night' she encounters a stranger who suddenly sparks a passion that has been sleeping within her. As her wedding date approaches, she finds herself struggling to put this newcomer out of her mind, but his effect on her keeps growing stronger. What is it that he sees in her, and why does she feel like she's being pushed inevitably into his arms? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Worth a look
13 March 2005 | by delphine090See all my reviews

I waited a day to post a comment to let the movie "sit" with me a while.

First, the acting throughout is excellent. You can't take your eyes off any of the characters, which are richly developed and complex - for the first two-thirds of the movie.

Then the characters become two dimensional, and I ceased to care as much what happens to them - not because of the acting, but because of the plot. Characters with which we identify act in ways that are incongruous and we lose connection with them.

At that point, the plot remains interesting, but it's almost as if we were dwelling inside the story and now we've been pushed out. We still want to know what happens next, but now we're distracted by the distance between us and the characters. But maybe that's the whole point - that people act in ways we don't expect given the situations they face.

It's a good movie and I'd recommend a viewing. As I said the acting is excellent and the plot is very solid - what you think is one thing may actually be another - but there aren't any holes. Just the opposite.

It's just that the first part (the love triangle) is so engaging that some of the plot twists that follow are annoying.

I would still recommend this film. Don't listen to critics anyway - obviously people really loved this film 100% - you might also.
