Though she made her first movie at the age of 13, Diane Lane has only blossomed into a true star in her 30s, and Under the Tuscan Sun marks her full flowering. After a brutal divorce, Frances (Lane) is persuaded by her friend Patti (Sandra Oh) to take a tour of Italy--where, on a whim that she hopes will rescue her from her desperate unhappiness, she buys a rundown villa and sets out to renovate it. Along the way, she gets advice from a former Fellini actress, meets a scrumptious Italian lover, and helps support Patti after her own relationship derails. The conclusion of Under the Tuscan Sun holds no surprises, but the deft turns and observations along the way are delightful. Lane carries the film effortlessly but surely, exuding both heartbreak and re-awakening passion. --Bret Fetzer

5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate warm-glow movie 3 Jun 2012
By Dolphin TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bucket full of sunshine 21 Feb 2005
By A Customer
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!

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing like the book 9 Jun 2005
Format:VHS Tape
Don't bother to see this film if you appreciated the book on which it is based. It has taken a story about a love affair with a house in Tuscany and turned it into a fairly average romance involving an American woman and a good looking Italian. Ed (who is the "hero" of the book) is relegated to a brief appearance at the end and half of the story is transported to the Amalfi coast, which is nowhere near Tuscany.
However, the scenery is beautiful, so if all you want is an undemanding film for a Saturday night you could do worse than to snuggle up and dream with this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Looking for ladybugs 31 July 2004
UNDER THE TUSCAN SUN, based on the non-fiction book of the same name by Frances Mayes, is one of those fantasies of escape likely to appeal to those leading lives of quiet desperation.
Diane Lane plays Frances, who's just undergone a bitter divorce made more insulting by the fact that ex-hubbie buys out her share of the house using money supplied by his new woman. Frances moves into an apartment block that specializes in sheltering the recently divorced. The lawyer next door sobs a lot. Then, two of Frances's lesbian friends gift her with a ticket for a tour of Tuscany. So, off she goes, ultimately to impulsively purchase a run-down villa in the hill town of Cortona. Mayes spends the rest of the story overseeing the restoration of her new digs by a local contractor employing three expatriate Poles, and searching for a new lease on Love.
My wife liked this film more than I, but admitted it's a chick flick. I'm giving it four stars chiefly because both Diane Lane and the Italian locations are gorgeous. The whole point of the film is to get the demoralized Frances to the point where she can again say, "I'm emotionally OK and ready to boogie." A disclaimer in the ending credits states that some characters were altered to enhance the dramatic action. Perhaps buffed up too much in some cases, and not enough in others.
For me, the film would have been a much better story had it focused on Frances, the villa's reconstruction, and the engaging personalities of the Poles (Pawel Szajda, Valentine Pelka, and Sasa Vulicevic), and created a relationship with her helpful real estate agent, the sensitive and maturely handsome Martini (Vincent Riotta). However, the screenwriters have Frances involved in too many other subplots requiring an excess of supporting players.

5.0 out of 5 stars An uplifting film 30 April 2006
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.
