Review:

I was in the mood for a light Romance and this just popped up on Amazon Prime movies so I figured why not. I watched this years ago and remember it being really romantic. I’m not sure what I watched all those years ago but I did not feel much romance. Maybe I was in the wrong mood?

The setting and plot are all super romantic, Italy, finding a long lost love, but the two young leads had almost no chemistry. They also just sort of happened. Amanda Seyfried’s character was engaged, her fiancé was just sort of there, it was clear they weren’t working. She argued with Christopher Egan’s character a lot, he was a pessimistic ass, but it’s okay because he’s a lawyer for human rights. It was all just sort of eh.

The best part was the ending. Finally, all the passion and chemistry I expected made itself known, though, Seyfried was a bit flat in the buildup. Whatever, it was something sweet to have on in the background.

3/5
