It was late in the night. I was channel surfing when suddenly I stopped with Josh Hartnett on my screen. He was a good enough reason to suspend my surfing for a while. But before I could know, I was hooked on to the movie.

The movie is “Wicker Park”. It’s not a sensational story or a story with sensational dialogues. But the plot is shot in a very captivating manner. The story is the usual: guy sees the girl, and it is love-at-first-sight for him. She reciprocates his feelings. They fall in love. SHE VANISHES. The story has 4 main characters other than an airport, a restaurant and an apartment. The direction of the movie is so sleek. It is like several plots happening at the same time and then all them coming up together and we see the jigsaw puzzle solved.

Diane Kruger looks stunning (I believe Hartnett can fall for her in the movie from her looks). In spite of the intrigue and switching of events between present and past, the romance is never lost. Kruger however gets less screen presence I think.

Good watch must say. Intriguingly simple, if you know what I mean. May be one should just watch the movie to feel it.
