The story of two sisters who saved a stranger, and the stranger who stole their hearts.

It's 1936, and two sisters, Janet and Ursula Widdington (Maggie Smith and Judi Dench), are at their beach house in Cornwall for some rest and relaxation.

But their idyll is interrupted when they chance upon a mystery man awash on the beach and decide to nurse him back to health. Turns out he's Andrea (Daniel Bruhl), a violinist who was bound for America when his ship encountered trouble. Before long, he takes the quiet fishing village by storm.

Had seen this at the movies, but the second viewing revealed a lot of short comings, including being annoyed that Judi Dench plays such a weak role.

This such a sweet film although I'm sure it could be seen to be crap by some. Almost definitely a girls movie, but if you're a man and into intriguing and bittersweet drama, then you'd like it. A lovely story, great acting.

I watched this again as I enjoyed it so much the first time.

It just goes to show that love is not just for the young.
