Goofs

In the scene of them out on the river, double sculling under the Ponte Vecchio, it was clear that the long shot was of guys who knew how to scull, but that in the close ups we could see that the actors didn't have a clue, especially Ercole (Brett Dalton) who really made it look like a Labour of Hercules! They were quite obviously so incompetent that some form of float had been attached to the boat to prevent them from capsizing. This appeared to be of a light coloured wood, and was clearly visible in two shots, one out on the river and another as they returned to the dock. In fact, once back at the dock they both drew their oars in out of the water while still sitting in the boat, something no sculler or rower would ever do, as it would almost certainly flip over (without that poorly concealed float attached). It is always necessary to get out of the boat while the oars are still all the way out on the water. See more »

User Reviews

 
This would have worked better as a sports movie
5 March 2019 | by Saw-it-on-TubiSee all my reviews

I have seen a lot of romance movies, and I don't think this was one of them. I never found myself rooting for the couple. I was never against the couple, but it was never a draw for this film. The romance feels bland and forgettable. At its core, the film is not a romance because it is never about Eric and Stefania as a couple but rather a story about Eric finding his way.

The unique aspect of this story is the sport element, and I think the film would have been more interesting if it focused more on that. I could barely tell one player on the team from the other, but if there was a greater focus, the emotional stakes for the game would have had more impact. As is, nothing about the film really stands out.
