Best Answer

Johnny Depp stars as an apparent American tourist (Frank) whose playful dalliance with a stranger leads to a web of intrigue, romance and danger in The Tourist. During a supposedly impromptu trip to Europe to mend a broken heart, Frank finds himself in a flirtatious encounter with Elise, an extraordinary woman who deliberately crosses his path. Against the breathtaking backdrop of Paris and Venice, their whirlwind romance quickly evolves as they find themselves calculatingly thrust into a deadly game of cat and mouse. Frank and Elise eventually discover the truth about each other in this remake of the 2005 French film Anthony Zimmer.

The movie is a remake of the 2005 French film Anthony Zimmer.

The book "The Tourist" is an espionage thriller written by Olen Steinhauer. Published in 2009 it became a New York Times Bestseller. The movie staring Angelina Jolie appears to be based on the Patricia Cornwell character Kay Scarpetta, the central character in many of her books. Very confusing and irritating to readers of Steinhauer to have the title of his recent book used for the title of an unrelated story with completely different characters.
