Feeling like a German update of the 2003 swooner ‘Under the Tuscan Sun’, this Croatian-set romance stars Naomi Krauss as a lonely frustrated woman who discovers she has inherited a summer house on the Adriatic. Leaving her entire world behind, she sets out for some ‘me time’, only to find a burly squatter already there. Over the course of the film, she slowly works to get her life back together, and, of course, finds a little love along the way. Director Vanessa Jopp has crafted a gorgeous sleepy little heart warmer, and the veteran Knauss carries the sweet film with grace.

4/5 stars
