What we have here is the middle-aged travel-porn: long on people enjoying vacation/holiday, short on real-world nuisances, and completely self-absorbed. Pleasant but not notably stimulating = good date-film

Entertaining to a point; great scenery; fine cast of actors in character.

If you love Maggie Smith you will love this movie. Smith works her magic set to the backdrop of some of the most beautiful Italian scenery.

I liked this DVD. It has a sad ending. The script is strong. It is well acted. It is not good for all ages. Sexual scenes are subtle enough for a younger audience. There is some violence. I like Maggie Smith as an actress.

A sweet slow-paced movie filmed in Italy. Easy watching and very enjoyable.

beautiful setting in Umbria Italy.
wish I was there again.
Maggie Smith a wonderful actor
the ending is predictable but beautiful though unrealistic considering the age of the people involved. nevertheless a chick flick. worth watching even if only for the scenery.

Maggie Smith fan - usually a pleasure to watch this brilliant, unrivaled actress. Not so much here, except for the clothes & maybe the scenery. Timothy Spall in a new light.

This was a beautiful movie to watch. It features gorgeous scenery from the Italian countryside. Several victims of a tragedy form a bond. Maggie Smith plays a rather eccentric woman who invites them all to stay at her house in Umbria. This movie reminds me of slow food - it moves at a leisurely pace with the story unfolding in bits and pieces. Those who wants lots of action and a linear story line will probably be bored.
