The Tourist

THE PERFECT TRIP ‚Äď THE PERFECT TRAP.

On a train to Venice, an American math teacher (Johnny Depp) meets a beautiful woman (Angelina Jolie) and is drawn into the Scotland Yard’s hunt for her mysterious lover. This remake of the French film Anthony Zimmer (2005) was the director’s first American project and he ends up looking like a cog in a Hollywood machine he can’t control. Hitchcockian in style, but there’s no chemistry whatsoever between the stars, the dialogue is awkward and the story is told without passion.

2010-U.S. 103 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck. Screenplay: Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, Julian Fellowes, Christopher McQuarrie. Cast: Johnny Depp (Frank Tupelo), Angelina Jolie (Elise Clifton-Ward), Paul Bettany (John Acheson), Timothy Dalton, Steven Berkoff, Rufus Sewell.

Trivia: Tom Cruise, Sam Worthington and Charlize Theron were allegedly considered for roles; Lasse Hallström for directing duties.
