It's Christmas Eve and radio talk show psychologist Marcia Fieldstone has asked her listening audience what they are wishing and dreaming of during this season of hope. A little boy, who is tuned in from Seattle calls in his wish, a new wife for his father who has been widowed for a year and a half. Meanwhile, all the way across the country, punching buttons on her car radio as she drives from Baltimore to Washington, D.C., Annie Reed hears Jonah and is immediately captivated by him and his selfless Christmas wish. Jonah and his dad are immediately besieged by countless letters from listeners reaching out to help, including thousands of marriage proposals from women across the country. Meanwhile, Annie becomes convinced that it is her destiny to meet Sam, Jonah's lovely dad. And as Annie sees it, there are just two minor problems. First, she is presently engaged to marry another man whom she does love. And, of course, Jonah's dad does not even know yet that he and Annie are made for each other.

English A very artificial and sentimental film that, nevertheless, at certain moments appears quite charming, with its leading actors being at the absolute top of their game at the time. Sleepless in Seattle fully exploits the power of the nocturnal city and the endearing vulnerability of Meg Ryan, who was born for such roles and eagerly repeated them several times. It is an average affair of the 1990s, but still a class above similar things made today on the same concept. ()

English "The mother of modern romantic comedies, which has never found its way to me. Flawless Hanks is desperately alone in his effort, and I am utterly disappointed by the rest of the cast and their performances." ()
