Plot Outline:

A reserved fisheries expert is approached by an affable, eccentric Arab sheik for a seemingly impossible task: to introduce British salmon into the middle of the desert. Yet as he takes on this task, he begins to emerge from his shell, helped in part by the sheik's beautiful legal assistant, and the idea behind fishing bringing man closer to God. -- Chris Kavan

Touching, light-hearted, sweet, and surprisingly effective. Blunt and McGregor are fantastic. I thoroughly enjoyed this film.

Another wasted Golden Globe Nomination. How was this movie nominated? Performances are OK but the story and subject matter are not. It is paced well, but did nothing for me. Skip this one and shake your fists at the Hollywood Foreign Press.

A sweet story that (unfortunately) relies way too much on cliches and plot points you can predict from miles away. It's too bad, because Blunt and McGregor have fantastic chemistry.

Cute but superficial

The film was cute. Casting was cute. Kristin Scott-Thomas was amazing. And that is all positive I can say - story wasn't really brilliant. At times I caught myself thinking how could the filmmakers be so insensitive to today's situation - as this is no toilet humor comedy - and make a film about such a dream as is salmon fishing in the Yemen. Yes they tried to portrait the benefices the local populace would get from that, but didn't really manage to escape from the superficiality of the cover story. Because, from the very start you hear how much they were going to spend for that project. Let it be sheikh's money and only estimates that might have been exaggerated, but the sum anyway sounded outrageously huge if you are aware of so many better investments that might have been done for impr...
