This is the second Al Pacino ( movie I can remember watching (I'll have to double-check on this fact). The first being Donnie Brasco (1997).

In any case, this movie focuses on two main characters whose relationship we get to watch form; similar to how Woody and Buzz Lightyear form a relationship in Toy Story.

On a different note, Chris O'Donnell ( gives a good performance, but Pacino is the one to watch this movie for. The movie has great lines. I suppose the plot is a little predictable, but the performance is what I recommend watching the movie for.

"Suggested by a character from 'Profumo di donna' by Ruggero Maccari and Dino Risi. Based on the novel 'Il buio e il miele' by Giovanni Arpino."
Roughly, this means the movie is a remake of "Profumo di donna," and "Profumo di donna" was based on the novel "Il buio e il miele."
Filmed entirely in New York on location and at Kaufman Astoria Studios.
