Above average, not great, it is a story of a woman who accidentally comes face to face with how dissatisfied she is with her own life by being left behind on a vacation trip. Instead of staying put "and being a good girl" she decides to hitch a ride home-- but instead winds up in Venice, misses her train home, winds up staying there, and things get more and more complicated bit by bit.
There are times that the story just jumps to conclusions and behaviors, but overall it does a fairly good job of staying on track-- if you can tell dreams from reality, and then enjoy the case of reality being mistaken for a dream.
About two hours long, so make sure you have time set aside for it.
Great story, super director, excellent music, picture and plot.
A bit confusing in the parts where the main character is "day dreaming", but those "dreams" form part of what is running in the back of her mind.
It is about a woman who has found herself stranded while taking a tour in Italy, her husband, sons and other family members forget her in a store. She decides to start, or to take a turn to her life and thats where the fun starts in her life.
Great film, if you do not want to buy it at least rent it. It is very worth it.
We loved the story line of a wife and mother so taken for
granted she is left behind on a vacation. The consequences
and characterizations are wonderfully done. Who wouldn't love
seeing Venice even in film.
Mr. Gann as always turns in a fabulous performance.
Wild, wacky yet in our secret heart of hearts we
all long for the fairy tale of doing what we love
and love what we are doing. A heartwarming movie
the whole family can watch.
We knew about this picture before viewing it the first time. The performance of the cast appears very natural. The site is set in Venice, Italy and the plot is of a simple yet interesting genre with many funny moments throughout the film.
We would recommend rather a more mature audience who will most certainly enjoy this movie and more than likely view it more than once.
The characters in this movie are quite fun; each one. Bruno Ganz is delightfully eccentric in his manner of speaking and it is wonderful to watch him change before your eyes from a suicidal man to a man able to have fun and truely enjoy the life he has before him. I also like the everyday clumsiness of each character.
