(tV2, astro Ch 102 / HypptV Ch 102, 10pm) there cannot be a more confusing and farcical storyline than this film, but who knows, you may actually enjoy it more than I did. anyway, the beautiful but mysterious elise Clifton-Ward (angelina Jolie) purposely befriends american tourist Frank tupelo (Johnny depp) on board a train through Italy. Of course, her “friendship” has an ulterior motive: elise is escaping from France to Venice following instructions from her lover alexander Pearce, who is wanted by the authorities for owing over £700 million in taxes! (I wonder how someone could actually evade taxes to such a huge amount.) apparently, Pearce has undergone plastic surgery to change his appearance, so the police regard elise as their best lead to him. as she continues receiving instructions from Pearce, poor tupelo is dragged further into this messy affair without knowing exactly what he is in for. romance soon blossoms between the two, so you can bet that Pearce will show up at that exact moment to disrupt everything.
