Young Spanish flamenco dancer Carmen (Natalia Verbeke), who lives in London, is on the verge of marrying Barnaby (James D'Arcy). By happenstance, she meets Kit (Gael Garcia Bernal), a Brazilian actor, the night before her wedding and ends up kissing him. What follows is subterfuge galore (to cover up their budding lust). Better cross a few of those &NFi;t&NFi_;'s, too! Costars Charlie Cox and Tom Hardy. Matthew Parkhill directs.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"As much as it tries to be a smart, postmodern indie film, dot the i is pure Hollywood fluff."
‑ Kerry Lengel, Arizona Republic
"While stylishly done, Parkhill's script isn't nearly as clever as he thinks it is, and the sucker punch near the end lacks, well, punch."
‑ Eleanor Ringel Gillespie, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"...benefits greatly from the inclusion of a thoroughly unpredictable third-act twist..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"The movie stops being about [its characters] - and starts being about the ways writer-director Matthew Parkhill can screw with your head."
‑ Sean Means, Salt Lake Tribune
""Dot the I" wants to join the ranks of "Memento" and "The Usual Suspects," films that reward multiple viewings, but it's so ridiculous that it doesn't sustain a first."
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
"Parkhill tries to keep new blood pulsing through the film, but the movie stalls by its third act, where he plays a trick that seems more desperate than fresh."
‑ John Monaghan, Detroit Free Press
"Inflicts great pain on the audience by wringing its plot into a bruised and pulpy mass."
‑ Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Dot the I is okay-ish until it drops one of those Sixth Sense-style plot twists which negates everything that has gone before it into audiences' laps . . ."
‑ James O'Ehley, SA Movie & DVD Magazine
"So in love with its own inventions and convolutions that it ignores all plausibility and audience acceptance."
‑ Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
"Once the effect of the second act's gimmick wears off, you find yourself growing more and more annoyed at the improbability of the entire setup."
‑ Pete Vonder Haar, Film Threat
"Take a long, hard look at Parkhill's film, and you'll find too many i's undotted."
‑ Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle
"You watch the screen in disbelief and amazement that any aspiring auteur could so willfully undermine his own project this way."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"The term 'terrible' not only describes what happens to the characters, it also describes the brain-numbing sensation of having to sit through this movie."
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"But despite its trickery, dot the i lacks emotional resonance that would elevate it above the banal."
‑ Michele Kenner, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"A curious mélange that works more often than not."
‑ Jack Garner, Rochester Democrat and Chronicle
