This movie begins in France where Frank Tupelo (played by Johnny Depp) a math teacher from Wisconsin, is taking a train ride from Paris to Venice to heal his heart from his wife who died.

Then appears Angelina Jolie, who plays Elise Clifton-Ward, who is being followed by the police in her every move. She is in love with Alexander Pearce, whom the police suspect she will lead them to him. Alexander is a worldwide wanted criminal who stole $2.3 billion dollars from Bernard Shaw, a gangster, and he wants it back.

Elise becomes friendly with Frank and takes him on a wild goose chase followed by gunfire, in speedboats in Venice. No one knows what Alexander looks like so the police assume that Frank is Alexander with lots of face reconstruction. They run from the police on roofs of buildings, in the streets and in the boats trying to keep one step ahead of the police.

The Tourist also stars Paul Bettany, Timothy Dalton, Steven Berkoff and Rufus Sewell. It was released by Columbia Pictures. The movie was directed and written by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck. Christopher McQuarrie was a co-writer. Scenes were filmed in Paris and Treviso, Venice, Italy.

Angelina is the typical femme-fatale with gorgeous looks, fabulous outfits and an attitude to match. The French countryside is a beautiful backdrop from the train and Venice is magnificent. However the chemistry between Depp and Jolie was non-existent.

OVERALL RATING: C
