    Beautiful locations, a restrained romance and those charming accents. However, some odd choices in terms of story spoil the magic. Kristin Scott Thomas steals every scene in a rarely comic and histrionic role.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    After watching Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, I found myself with mixed feelings about the film. In fact, as the relationship between Dr Jones and Harriet blossoms, I felt increasingly unsettled by the way first Dr Jones and then Harriet dispose of their previous partners in such a nonchalant manner. Whilst it seems that Mary Jones may be partly responsible for her husband's 'defection' though her acceptance of a six-week assignment in Geneva from her employers, which leaves her husband…

    Beautiful cinematography but a dire film. The film is billed as a rom com but there's not enough "rom" or "com" to be anything of the sort, and that in itself is not a problem for me as I'm not a fan of either genre so am happy for a film to be more true to life.

    Sloppy sentimentalism trying to deliver a "feelgood" film. The "potentially possible" becomes actual and flourishes in the desert - however, the diverted water course is about as credible as the love affair. One or two good bits, coming mainly from Kristin Scott Thomas's PR secretary to the PM.

    Charming light entertainment with good casting and a nice feel good way to spend 90-minutes. Not overly dramatic or sentimental, but nothing that special either.

    it lets you loose inside the labyrinth. the minotaur finds you and asks you to have a tea with him. forever.

    such unadorning premise and unexciting scene-turner that evolves nowhere with its very obvious resolution.

    Very enjoyable rom-com of sort with a British stiff upper lips feel to the whole thing.

    I actually enjoyed this one! A good story about people meeting over something as average as fishing.
