We discovered this film about three years ago and watch it whenever we feel the need for some golden Italian sunshine and delightful humour. Jean Reno is wonderful as the bemused but well intentioned owner of a taverna who is trying to ensure that his wife will be able to be buried next to their daughter if and when she does succomb to her heart condition. That may sound depressing, but I can absolutely assure you that it is the absolute reverse - it's a classic feel good movie.
Please turn it into a DVD soon, as like one of the other reviewers, I am concerned my video will wear out as whenever I need a fix of Italian sunshine it comes out - along with Avanti, or Enchanted April. Roseanna is the funniest of this trio, but all of these leave you feeling as if the Prosecco and sunshine are just a short flight away. Watch it if you feel the need to escape a rainy British winter.

Format: VHS Tape
I first saw this as a rental a few years ago when EVERYTHING else in the shop was out. Lucky for me. This is a charming film, basking in the bitter-sweet humour often associated with death. Jean Reno is superb as the doting, slightly deranged husband who will stop at nothing to reserve the last burial site at the small village church for his ill wife Roseanna, played by Mercedes Ruehl.
The chemistry between the 2 lead characters makes this film more than just a comic premise; and while we laugh at Marcello (Reno) desperately directing traffic to prevent any fatal accidents and running aroung the lush Italian countryside keeping everyone alive, we can see what's driven him to such drastic measures when he's sitting on the hillside alone with his wife.

A wonderful film, realistically portrayed. I am English, living permanently in an area of Italy from which this beautiful and touching film could well have been set. The characters are typical of Italian country people; an essential blend of humour, a love of life and an almost wreckless determination to succeed in carrying out that which they believe is right. We loved it and so did our Italian friends!

A small Italian village whose graveyard is filling up. So what? It is the wish of Marcello's (the tavern keeper) wife to be buried near her daughter. He makes it his mission to keep the village alive.
The title gives the impression of horror or at leat depression but this is one of the most uplifting films I have ever seen - and not in that "You'll be a better person after watching it" vein.
Perhaps because I was brought up on Ealing Comedies that I crave the subtle humour that this provides.
I defy you not to enjoy this - even my husband (a devotee of Alien) will watch this again and again - we inflict it on all our friends and have not lost one yet!
I am constantly disappointed by other films - if anyone can help me find another as good I would be very grateful.
Please will someone release it on DVD before my video disintegrates.

Format: VHS Tape
A film that plays your emotions like a master on a grand piano. You will laugh and cry during this one, but is is enchanting and brings an extraordinarily European view on life and death. It's theme may be dark, but the film is gifted with a light touch of sensitivity and humour.
Jean Reno (better know for his hardman role in Ronin and Leon)is superb, but does not stand above the rest of the cast by much.
Watch this film.

After watching this film a few years ago have not forgotten the humour and charm of a very tastefully mastered movie. Have made many enquiries as to when it will be released on DVD but as yet no confirmation on release date from any source. Any help on this matter will be gratefully appreciated.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
It's a lovely little film. Everyone else has told you that already. But which version to buy?

The fact that this still is not available as a UK region 2 DVD is a never-ending mystery. That being the case, we seem to have little alternative other than to consider other releases. In February 2014, after years of waiting for someone to have the sense to release this as an English / UK region 2 disc I finally took the plunge and ordered the release described as 'For Roseanna - DVD - 1997 - Dutch Import'. The default in-film dialogue / language on my (Dutch) copy is ENGLISH.

There seems to be a lot of confusion about whether this copy or that copy is or is not in English - this is not helped at all by the fact that Amazon lumps every single review for any release of a film into one single block of reviews, so it isn't always clear which release / version any given reviewer is writing their review about unless it is explicitly stated by them in their review text.

For the record, here are the specific details about the copy I received:

My Seller: 'brrsales', fulfilled by Amazon. Please bear in mind that the seller Amazon directs you to for this film may change many times over by the time you read this review.

Front cover description: Jean Reno and Mercedes Ruehl facing each other across a tabletop with a white vase on it with flowers in it. The main title 'For Roseanna' is in red, with the silhouette of a tightrope walker balancing on top of the word 'Roseanna'. Underneath the main red title are the words "Pour L'Amour De Roseanna" in smaller white lettering.
