I just can't believe that some people call this movie "porn" - GET A LIFE!!!
Though it sometimes has a low-budget feeling to it - probably because it is - this movie is heart-rending, and I'm usually not into this kind of thing.
A Scottish woman (Holly Hunter) stops speaking for no reason we ever get to know (nor where her precocious daughter [Anna Paquin] comes from), and is married off by her family to a New Zealand farmer (Sam Neill).

-like an original movie (taken from an Elmore Leonard novel),
-aren't bothered to follow a storyline slightly more complicated than a roadrunner chase,

-aren't paralyzed by ridiculous stereotypes (like "tv actors are bad" or "latin singers can't act"),
-like a romantic comedy that isn't sappy, but intriguing, funny, and has an unusual ending,
this might be the movie for you.

I just returned from a trip to Europe and spent several days in Rome...
So this guide gets great reviews... True, the historical and cultural sections are fine. They didn't include any colour photographs, o. k., might be their style.
But to sell a - not even cheap - guide that doesn't even have an underground map?! The maps in general aren't worth the paper they're printed on. You're certain to get lost in the city if you trust this guide.
If you want to bother bringing this guide along a "real" guide, be my guest, but I, for one, expect more of a city guide.
