Pavel, an emotionally volatile and socially alienated young man, sets off across Europe in search of his idol, the enigmatic painter Arnaud. Desperately lonely, Pavel tries to adhere to the host of characters he meets along the way.
Twenty-something Alan (Gleeson) is down on his luck. Stood up at the altar and recently fired from his banking job, he finds himself working with his mother as a part-time tourist advisor at Dublin Airport. It's there he comes face to face with first love Alice (Paré), stuck on standby for a flight home to New York. Their summer romance ended eight years previously with Alan promising to return to the US one day. He never did, and they haven't spoken since. Seizing his chance, Alan convinces a reluctant Alice to stay one more night in Dublin. Over the course of an unforgettable evening, they may just realise that they are more compatible than ever. But time is running out on this brief encounter. When does an unexpected second chance, become the one you've always been looking for?Written by

So is this all people do in Dublin?
There's not that much to do in the evenings. Maybe in the summertime...
There must be something.
Play a few games of pool. Get a kebab?
I thought you were a tourist adviser?
We usually advise them to go somewhere else.

I find this movie might have been underrated. Perhaps critics sometimes confuse simplicity and fidelity to the purposes of a genre, with limitations. A genre, in this case romantic, is necessarily limited in its scope and predictable; but those are not shortcomings, but merits of a genre, as classic tragedies and comedies show. To me it was a very good romantic movie, neat, elegant and charming. Classic. I watched it twice and the second time I enjoyed it even more; to me is a good sign that the film will stand the pass of time very well.
