Matthew (Rob Morrow) is a renowned neurologist. In his early career, however, he was a doctor in Africa, as part of a humanitarian medical corps. It was there that he met the early love of his life, Silvia. Silvia, from Italy, is also a doctor and the two become inseparable. However, Silva is the daughter of a very wealthy Italian businessman and he has promised her hand in marriage to a son of another wealthy Italian. A crisis occurs. Silvia saves Matthew's life in exchange for giving him up and following her father's wishes. Matthew is devastated. He throws himself into his work in neurology, and nothing else, for years and years. Unexpectedly, a longtime friend named Evie (Marisa Tomei) becomes divorced and the two fall for each other hard. They marry. Suddenly, Silvia re-enters the picture. Outcome, please? This is one of the loveliest stories of love ever. The script is humorous and full of pathos at the same time, examining the ways and depths of one's loves and choices. Morrow is terrific as the doctor and Tomei is her usual irresistible self as the wife. Silvia (Matilda May) is also quite nice as the woman thrust into impossible situations. The settings of Africa, Europe and the States are an added bonus and the costumes fetching. Gents, do you want to make your partners happy this Valentine's Day? Get this movie and your mates will cling to you like velcro throughout the view. It might even make couples fall in love all over again.
