Filmed in Venice, The Tourist is a romantic thriller that pairs two of Hollywood's megastars, Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp.
Johnny Depp plays the part of a widowed Wisconsin math teacher, Frank Tupelo who meets Elise Clifton Ward (Angelina Jolie) a beautiful Englishwoman who is being pursued by Scotland Yard. After receiving a secret note, Jolie takes a train from Paris to Venice, picks up Depp and tries to fool her pursuers in thinking that he is her lover Alexander Pearce.
I enjoyed the humor, breathtaking scenery and free-wheeling plot. The ending is unexpected and the movie often stumbles between spy thriller, love story and romantic comedy.
