Great movie that takes you right back to the Algarve feel!
17 July 2014 | by knogget-56-640349See all my reviews

I just saw this film yesterday and I must say it was wonderful. I have visited the Algarve in Portugal several times, and I must saw first of, that the wipe in the film was just as I remember from my stay in the Algarve. The story was sweet and well acted and I especially loved Miguel Damião playing the helpful neighbor. Just so funny, in fact there were just so many lovable and funny moments in this romantic comedy from Portugal that I can fully recommend it to everyone who wants to feel happy and just have a nice time with a great little flick.

The story is about this out of luck banker from London, very well played by Mark Killeen (although are little butch –But I guess that was for his Game of Thrones appearance), who makes a fresh start in the Algarve. And If you have ever been to Portugal and especially the Algarve you just know how wonderful and helpful the Portuguese are. Therefore Oliver (Mark Killeen) and his neighbor Manel, played really well by Portuguese actor Miguel Damião appear in all of these well known Portuguese situations, which Oliver handles in sometimes very misplaced ways, so funny, and sweet at the same time.
