Storyline

When English Mark surprises his American bride Holly with her dream honeymoon to Portugal she cant believe her luck. Mark goes to great trouble to organise everything for her. They arrive in Portugal to discover that the country is hosting a major international soccer tournament and that the English national team is playing! Whats more, the England team, and their raucous fans, seem to follow them everywhere. Soccer-loving Mark claims innocence - a complete coincidence - after all, what kind of man would lie to his new wife just to watch England play in a tournament? Gradually, Holly is forced to consider that perhaps her husband could be just such a man. Marks odd behaviour, their whirlwind romance and her fathers money (that paid for the trip) all begin to add to a terrible conclusion. The games intensify, the subterfuge deepens and cracks develop. Mark denies everything, but what has he done? How can he prove that he really loves her? The film captures the passion, drama and ... Written by Elliot Potter

An funny and cheerful movie
29 June 2006 | by lionel25See all my reviews

I ve seen this movie yesterday on DVD. I Did not expected too much of it but it did much better than just a lose-some-time entertainment. It was cheerful, funny, well played, and most of all very romantic. Of course if you expect a deep sociological movie do not see it, but if you want to kill a rainy Sunday afternoon, you will enjoy yourself very much especially if you are in a couple who is not able to understand the other's passion and even better if the other's passion is football. The only dark thing about this movie is that it has (especially in the beginning) some very creepy and rather amateurish shots, a bit like these bad erotic movies. However it gets very soon better or you don not care so much anymore because you focus on the story and on the performance of these very good actors. 8/10
