    I never thought I would enjoy this movie. I talked to a friend who dismissed it as a "chick flick". When I saw it on a lot of top 10 lists I gave it a chance and loved the awkwardness of this film.

    I thought this had great potential and would be a lot funnier. Instead, I kept looking at my watch.

    I never get tired of watching this film which is beautifully framed and shot in central Italy. Anton Corbijn does such an amazing job of capturing the Abruzzo region in Italy that the plot and the acting sometimes take a back seat. I also love that this thriller has a slow, methodical, pacing unlike most of the films in this genre. I watched it for the fourth time with the audio commentary by Corbijn and my appreciation for the film continues to grow.
