PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Thriller
Revolves around Frank, an American tourist visiting Italy to mend a broken heart. Elise is an extraordinary woman who deliberately crosses his path.
In early conversations between Jon Hutman and Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, they agreed the film's design had to reflect the beauty of the city of Venice, while making sure the city still felt fresh and contemporary. Hutman explained: "Where else, but the city of Venice, can you have canal boat chases and roof top chases, but also have your characters doing a walk-and-talk strolling through some of the most stunning streets in the world? Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp, and Venice . . . It doesn't get much better than that!".
So, what are you doing in the city of lovers? Is there no one in your life?
Frank Taylor: There was.
Elise: What happened?
Frank Taylor: She left me.
Elise: I'm sorry to hear that, Frank.
When Frank (Johnny Depp) is running around on the roofs in Venice, in some shots you can see the tape around his bare feet to protect them from the roof tiles he jumps on.
