Boring and a lousy plot
28 August 2011 | by newtr0nSee all my reviews

I do not recommend this movie at all. I don't know what dafoe was thinking when doing this movie.

First, the protagonist is a girl that leaves her country, to italy, with a writer that only met a few times. I don't know if shes naive or so stupid.

Second, she tries to fulfill the role of the writes dead wife in a really annoying way. This movie lacks music, people and smart dialogue.

Finally, the ending is really disappointing.

The only good thing is the beautiful scenes from southern italy, but anyway its a waste of time. Don't bother watching this.
