A MARVELOUS FILMBy a customer from Manchester,UK , 05 Apr 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]If you have ever watched 'Hotel DuLac' or 'Enchanted April' or'A Month by the Lake'
and enjoyed them, then this film is for you.
After the explosive opening, this film becomes a gentle layered story about loss and recovery.
The enchanting countryside where it is set works its magic on all the players.
Maggie Smith is as marvelous as ever, her life is the seen and the unseen.
Timothy Spall, Ronnie Barker and all the supporting characters are excellent.
A film to watch over again and enjoy.

For MaggyBy Coquelicot (18 reviews) from Sturminster Newton , 27 Apr 2009I love Maggy Smith and in this film, she's confirming her talent. The film is slow but it doesn't matter because it's well played.
My house in UmbriaBy freyalovespink (10 reviews) from Fareham , 26 Apr 2009An easy watch period-style drama, great actor-actresses who form wonderful relationships.
Not an action packed movie (hubby didnt enjoy) but gorgeous italian scenery and a storyline to keep you ticking over.
easy watchingBy a customer from Brighton , 07 Mar 2009Great location, interesting characters, good acting, fairly slow but unusual story. Worth watching if in a slow, laid back mood.
Nice watchable filmBy a customer from England , 29 Jan 2009I love Maggie Smith and she was great in this movie (as usual). I thought it was a bit slow in some parts but I would still recommmend the movie as a 'watchable'.
