The sparkling seascapes and ancient historical attractions of Malta play major roles in this romance that functions as a heartfelt valentine to the tiny archipelago nation. Giovanni (Olivier, of GLEE), an American tourist ducking out on business woes back home, lands in Malta, gets a wild ride of an introduction to the local culture from a rambunctious cab driver, and quickly meets Carmen (Peres, of ASSASSIN'S CREED), a fiery miss who's just ditched her faithless lover. Talk about a match - it's a girl with a suitcase and no place to stay and a guy with an empty apartment. Director Galea lets rocky romance take its course while never losing sight of Malta's truly breathtaking beauties and landmarks, including the famed rock formation known as the Azure Window, filmed shortly before its collapse. Named Best Film at the Malta International Film Festival. In English. Courtesy of Galea Pictures. ProRes digital. (BS)
