Overview

Nick Hamm Talk of Angels directed this U.K. romantic comedy following a group of British blokes and their encounters with an American woman in London. As Laurence Joseph Fiennes, brother of Ralph Fiennes narrates the tale to his neighbor, Dr. Pedersen Ray Winstone, the scene flashes back to three days earlier: Laurence's friend Daniel Tom Hollander is in the Minneapolis airport on a business trip when he spots blonde Martha Monica Potter of Con Air buying a "first flight to anywhere." Daniel sits next to her on the plane and makes a London lunch date with her for the following day, but she's a no-show. He expresses his disappointment to Laurence and unemployed actor Frank Rufus Sewell of Cold Comfort Farm. Frank meets Martha accidentally in a park, realizes who she is, learns she's in love and she intends to fly back to the U.S., and then makes a move on her without telling her he knows Daniel. He loses track of her at an art gallery. Later, Laurence reveals that when he missed meeting Daniel at the airport, he wound up meeting Martha instead -- a moment of mutual love. At this point, much like the structure of Stanley Kubrick's The Killing 1956, the time is reset and previous events are repeated -- from the POV of another character. The movie is only two-thirds complete when Laurence finishes his recap of the previous three days -- so the story continues from that point. Shown at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival.

    The very thought of this movie makes me smile!

    What a fantastic, cheerful film. The Very Thought of You combines a romantic comedy with real-life lessons and themes (which, let's face it, romantic comedies are generally too shallow to do.) When I first saw this movie listed on TV, I expected it to be another fluffy made-for-teenagers film; after all, I'd never seen Monica Potter act before and at that time had not seen Shakespeare in Love, which features Joseph Fiennes, who gives a brilliant performance in both films. After watching it, however, I immediately knew I had to buy it. The plot, an American woman with no money starting a new life in London, was pretty interesting itself, but combining that with meeting three men in two days that are all friends was even more interesting. The outcome is somewhat predictable and not exactly realistic, but realism is over-rated. The film also features some good shots of London, which appears normally gray and old-fashioned in most movies; bright colors, which are very important in a film; and fun, fast songs that make the movie run a little more smoothly. This movie is very similar in some ways to Happenstance, a French film starring Audrey Tautou, the main character in Amelie. Overall, a great feel-good movie to watch again and again.
