A great achievement Giovanni and Adam deserve an oscar nom
22 April 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

A beautiful new storyline light film like "Serendipity",but in it's Producing,Directing,Acting,Music,Color it's similar to "The Pianist",the color of this film is so crisp.

This film is wonderful, heart warming, for all ages, a new story that transfer the audience into the second moment with mystery,you keep asking yourself while you are watching, will they fall in love? or will they not?.

The scenery of the Australian country viewes are magnificent,gorgous outback,farms,houses,also this film introduced the first espresso machine in Australia many years ago.

Geovanni Ribisi, he looks good and handsome,he played the more reserved brother,Giovanni put on his best performance to date,his acting is haunting I never ever seen him like this before,he manipulated every inch of movement in his face, and introduced it on the camera,he killed me I just wanted to grab him and say were on earth were you hiding this talent all those years. as we all know he acted in many films. see his work in IMDB.

Adam Garcia, he puts every gorgous hollywood star for dead, with his looks in this film, Yes I know he is a hollywood star himself, as he acted in many hollywood films,specially with the superstar Drew Barrymore, Adam Garcia shiny blue black hair,navy blue eyes, magnificent figure all show very well under the sun and among the beautiful trees. (Girls he's a hunk in this film you must see this film to believe me), about his performance as the playful brother in "Love's Brother" he is superb, calculated and enchanting acting.

I really believe every Director should see those two performances for future casting of the two stars Giovanni Ribisi and Adam Garcia.

Both stars Giovanni Ribisi and Adam Garcia deserve an Oscar nomination for this film.

I also loved the two girls Amelia & De santis

This movie and the performances are a medicine for the heart.
