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.Read more ›
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!
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.
We are teased along the way with potential partners for Frances - estate agent, casual acquaintance in the square and finally the wooden Ed who kinds a ladybird on her. The character of Katherine by Lindsay Duncan is a little strange to figure out - she seems to turn up everywhere that Frances is for no apparent reason.
The funniest scene is in the notary's office where the land she has bought with the villa will take two days to plough with two oxen (that's how they measure it) and the notary gives her the keys and Frances says 'Is that it? and the notary says what's the problem it's not a Vespa your're not going to steal it.
All-in-all an excellent film and well worth a second watch
