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.
