Dot the I
Young lovers in London are wrapped up in a love triangle that may not be exactly what it seems. Carmen, a beautiful Spanish woman with a tendency to lose her temper at the drop of a hat, is about to be married to Barnaby, a caring, wealthy, but slightly boring Englishman. While out with friends on her 'hen night' she encounters a stranger who suddenly sparks a passion that has been sleeping within her. As her wedding date approaches, she finds herself struggling to put this newcomer out of her mind, but his effect on her keeps growing stronger. What is it that he sees in her, and why does she feel like she's being pushed inevitably into his arms?

While the plot whirls around with a number of deft twists and deepens into darker layers, the story is emotionally uninvolving.
More polished verbally, but alarmingly unexpressive nonetheless, Bernal appears to have learned one essential trick of the budding movie star: When floundering, flash that irresistible horndog grin.
Behind its slick veneer and the glibness of its preposterous premise and dark twists, there s a yawning absence of charm or substance in this London-set love triangle, as well as a lack of chemistry between its three leads.
Satisfies and disturbs in just about equal measure.
Its trickery might seem cute or clever to viewers who don t take either movies or people very seriously, but to me it recalled cynical "puzzle" films like Memento and Irreversible, with no reason to exist apart from its gimmick.
