American Angela de Luca is a tour guide in Rome, it a job she loves in showing visitors what she finds special about the city that can't be found in standard guide books. Her exuberance does end up getting her into trouble as, a few days before Christmas, she is fired by her boss Tomasso Toffino for not sticking to the "tourist hot spots" protocol one too many times. It is when she is nursing her wounds about the job in not knowing what to do that she literally runs into Oliver Martin, who works for the New York based acquisitions firm Fiske and Drummond, he in Rome on business to acquire famed high end Italian ceramics company Forlinghetti for Fiske and Drummond. Oliver is all work and no play, he especially seeing the Christmas season as an opportune time to do business as no one else wants to work and thus will rush into deals.

Actors overcome material
23 December 2019 | by montgomerysueSee all my reviews

This is the typical, formula, stereo-typed Hallmark Christmas movie plotline. There is nothing new or surprising about this romance story - you've seen it all before (probably many times) other than the fact that some scenes are actually shot in Rome which does add some uniqueness. Nevertheless, the always good stars, Lacey Chabert and Sam Page, rise way above the lackluster material and give some really nice performances that make sitting through this, ultimately, okay. Once. But not again. Fun to see Franco Nero, an Italian actor who became an international heartthrob during the late 60's, 70's and early 80's, show up as "Luigi" (of course), but he really isn't given much to do or say. The rest of the cast works well, too, despite the trite script. It's time for Hallmark to realize that taking their really talented performers and sticking them in boring stories just because they take place in London, Rome, Graceland, Dollywood (that one was a real stinker this year), etc. does not guarantee viewership. As a matter of fact, we quit watching the Dollywood one half way through. Never saw Dolly Parton!
