Golden Globe Nominee Johnny Depp (Best Actor in a comedy or Musical) stars for the first time alongside Angelina Jolie (Girl Interrupted, Mr & Mrs Smith, The Changeling) in the lavish romantic adventure The Tourist, released on DVD and Blu-Ray by Optimum Home Entertainment on 25th April 2011.
Academy Award winning director Florian Henckel Von Donnersmarck (The Lives of Others), working alongside Academy Award winning screenwriters Julian Fellowes (Gosford Park) and Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects), pays homage to the best of Hitchcock charting a whirlwind romance against the breathtaking backdrop of Paris and Venice.
An enigmatic criminal mastermind, Alexander Pearce, has embezzled an immense fortune from brutal oligarch and gangster, Reggie Shaw (Steven Berkoff, 44 inch chest), and vanished without a trace. In his place, his estranged girlfriend, Elise Clifton-Ward (Angelina Jolie) becomes the target of not only by Shaw and his vicious posse of Russian hit-men, but also Scotland Yard in the form of the obsessive Inspector Acheson (Paul Bettany, A Beautiful Mind) and his reluctant boss, Chief Inspector Jones (Timothy Dalton, License to Kill). Leading a life of aristocracy in Paris under their scrutiny, Elise one day receives a note telling her to catch a train to Venice, and to choose a suitable looking stranger to act as a decoy for the cops and mobsters.
Enter Frank Tulpelo (Johnny Depp), an American maths professor and run of the mill tourist trying to get over the death of his wife. Seduced by the beguiling Elise, Frank finds himself thrust from his low-key holiday into life or death chases over rooftops and through the narrow streets and waterways of Venice, as their pursuers close in. In the midst of sparks flying, each begins to suspect that the other may not be quite what they seem...
