There are so many reviews already for this 2003 movie that I didn't think one more was necessary, however, I have read so much unjust criticism of the film with regard to stereotypes and the Italian characters that I thought perhaps a few home facts from an Italian native might be in order (and I will try my hardest not to give away the plot). For a start, the portrayal of the people is very well done, although it certainly shows Italians mostly on their best behaviour, but still very accurate. They are generally helpful, friendly and quick to accept Americans and other foreigners especially if the "stranieri" appear to sincerely appreciate a different lifestyle and don't focus entirely on the inefficiencies and shortcomings that go along with it. The scene in the notary's office is a very good example. The deal is done in a competent way but with a good dose of humanity. The people in the street scenes are as authentic as can be, they are Cortona residents and, unsurprisingly, speak with the local accent. The building crew are Polish and that explains their accents.

I was amazed to find so much venom directed at the Marcello character. His behaviour became perfectly understandable if one grasped the fact that months had elapsed between their initial meeting and the later one. The parade of potential builders is obviously meant to be a comic caricature of personalities, but it really doesn't stray too far from the truth. I have met people just like them. In fact, all the characters in the movie are fairly believable, the single exception being Ed, who (even considering his limited role) is completely wooden and exhibits the personality of the proverbial door-knob.

I detest the term "chick flick" and this film does not deserve it.

Going to put my hand up here and say that I am a hopeless romantic, a huge lover of all things Italian and I like Diane Lane as an actress. I haven’t read the book by Frances Mayes but the film “Under the Tuscan Sun” is absolutely enchanting. First saw it in the cinema around 2003, fell in love with it, have watched it several times since and have lost count of the number of times I have recommended it to other people.

The bare bones are writer finds out her husband wants a divorce, he gets to keep the house, writer gets depressed (understandably), goes on holiday to Italy and buys a derelict villa on a whim. The film covers the writer’s renovation of the villa, the craziness of life in Italy, absolutely breathtaking scenery, a great cast of characters and a happy ending.

The film is also a great advertisement for the sheer physical beauty of Italy and, personally, I feel that it captures the essence of Italy (every time we go there, my partner is amazed at the chaos) and the big hearts of its inhabitants. "Under the Tuscan Sun" simply lifts the spirits and I defy anyone to watch this and not immediately want to go to Italy for a holiday!

Really enjoyed this film. It's true what another reviewer says that it does not really follow the plot of the semi-autobiagraphical wonderful book by Frances Mayes which I would urge everyone to read (and also the sequel-"Bella Tuscany"). But it's pure escapism. Beautiful scenery and beautiful people. If you want to watch a film which will take you away from the dull english weather and enable you to dream a little then this is the choice for you. Simpatico!

This is the sort of film that makes you want to leave the busy and often stressful everyday living in a city and go to a small and tranquil village in southern europe. The picure is very good and the screenplay is excellent. This is a great film for people of all ages

I bought this as part of a self chosen "three for just over a tenner" package seeing as that is now Amazon's minimum charge without incurring postage, but in the process probably put aside critical DVD selection skills. All I can say is that this film is what I gather is called a "chick flick" (although that does sound disrespectful) and is rather shallow in my opinion. Most importantly though it is an entirely American film with a typically American perspective of Europe/Italy/any other culture than stateside. I took a guess it might be something of a mix of Grand Designs Abroad/Shirley Valentine/A Year in Provence but I was wrong. So if lightweight American drama and film making style is your thing (if you don't like that genre then you will know what I mean) then you may like this film. Otherwise, pass.

Do you believe in signs? I do...Under the Tuscan Sun is a film about where you would be if you take a different step, if you meet a different person, if you take a different corner...

This film also brings a bit of everything we like to talk about: destiny, love, friendship, disappointment, affair, healing, travelling, tourists, locals, and so on.

It is a film that talk about many things and doesn't dissapoint but on the contrary everything the team puts to create it makes perfect sense so you want to watch it over again and again. Conclusion, it is a must-seen and it should be in your shopping list.

A bit about the film...a very enjoyable film about a writer who buys an old house in Italy and changes her life after her divorce. It is full of colour and signs. With very interesting caracters and episodes.

It is very different from the book but it rescues the essence of what the writer was trying to share with us. We write our own destiny and we have to let ourselves follow those signs.
