The Tourist

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - TV HIGHLIGHTS -

(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.
