A dialogue marathon of a film, this fairytale love story of an American boy and French girl. During a day and a night together in Vienna their two hearts collide.
But what is even better about having a romance feeling this real, is how I can finally sit down and watch a romantic movie, where I dont have to persistently point at the screen and tell the two lovebirds to move out of the pouring rain and continue their kissing under the roof right next them Im also free of any bare-chested beach-shots of Ethan Hawke running in slow motion with his sunglasses and surfboard Wait a minute, is this even a romantic film after all.
One may say the film isn't ambitious because "nothing happens," but to make such a realistic film where philosophy is so heavy in a role for character development, isn't the courage to undertake such a unique film and make it so good a form of ambition.
