An American tourist (Depp) is used by an English woman (Jolie) in an attempt to flush out a criminal with whom she once had an affair.
Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, the director of the film was quoted saying in an interview:
"It's a love story, that's for sure. Imagine a woman who is just so elegant and sophisticated and educated and has lived in that world and now, through a whole set of circumstances, suddenly falls in love with a guy who is not any of those things, and it just somehow confuses her whole world because that was not meant to happen. She had it all worked out, she had this grand master plan, and neither he nor she had thought it possible that they would fall in love with each other. I have to keep the real details a secret otherwise you won't have any fun seeing it."
