Colin, an ambitious young New York finance executive, needs to clinch a deal with a wealthy Dubai sheik, who has a weakness for pigeon racing. They make a bargain: the sheik will sign if Colin can get him a particular pigeon, the perfect bird to win the prestigious Barcelona international race. This bird has been trained in Flanders, but the owner refuses to sell at any price. Posing as a school teacher searching for the grave of an ancestor killed in the First World War, Colin travels to the little Flemish village where the pigeon fancier lives and starts to look for something that will separate the bird from its owner. But in the process he falls under the spell of the place and of Isabelle, the pigeon fancier's spirited granddaughter. Written by anonymous

11 February 2015 | by cekadahSee all my reviews

First I must say something very rude - Isabelle Pauwels (Charlotte De Bruyne) is not much to look at and I didn't believe for a minute that Colin (Jamie Dornan) would have been remotely interested in her. Here we have a NYC high finance hunk suddenly falling head over heals for a simple country girl in Belgium.

Then the old folks and those pigeons!! And a billionaire middle eastern guy that must have the prized pigeon. Fony baloney crap! Not believable at all. AND who couldn't figure out that the prized pigeon would fly home?? Every character came across as just a bit to simple and the pigeon was the only smart one in the whole group.

The WW1 connection was so loosely injected into the story it was a laff!!
