Amanda Seyfried and Vanessa Redgrave have a magical quality about them that is absolutely essential in a film like this. All the male actors are also well cast, but it is very much a girls' film. It is a lovely romance for both the younger and the more mature lady, whose paths cross so beautifully in the story. Set in Tuscany, at the height of summer, what more could you wish for. The colour and music that infiltrates the scenes is so therapeutic that you want to be transported to this more gentle, everyday life.
