  • 2 stars "I thought maybe it was a movie lead in to a TV series as there were so many undeveloped sub-plots when the movie ended. Each character had events unfolding which were never resolved. Disappointing."
  • 5 stars "like it"
  • 1 star "This was an excuse to get a free holiday in Genoa. No story, no plot, just a lot of scenery."
