American Angela de Luca is a tour guide in Rome, it a job she loves in showing visitors what she finds special about the city that can't be found in standard guide books. Her exuberance does end up getting her into trouble as, a few days before Christmas, she is fired by her boss Tomasso Toffino for not sticking to the "tourist hot spots" protocol one too many times. It is when she is nursing her wounds about the job in not knowing what to do that she literally runs into Oliver Martin, who works for the New York based acquisitions firm Fiske and Drummond, he in Rome on business to acquire famed high end Italian ceramics company Forlinghetti for Fiske and Drummond. Oliver is all work and no play, he especially seeing the Christmas season as an opportune time to do business as no one else wants to work and thus will rush into deals. He expects to meet with Luigi Forlinghetti, seal the deal and leave Rome without experiencing any of it. A promotion to vice-president of the company rests ... Written by Huggo

User Reviews

Beautiful, if not entirely believable!
2 December 2019 | by kahastSee all my reviews

This movie was beautifully filmed and well acted, and I loved seeing Roman sights and learning a little about the culture. I only had two problems with this movie; one small (Angela hoofing it around Rome all day on those heels) and one big (Oliver's deep and abiding focus on only business and profits sure did change quickly, with zero growing pains). That being said, this movie did a pretty good job at making me think such a transformation may be possible with the right person and experiences. Well done!
