very relaxing, feel good film!By a customer from Notts , 20 Oct 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]Really enjoyed this movie and Liv Tyler is excellent as the sexy teenager looking for love in a hot and sultry Italian summer. Lovely interchange between all the characters of the movie and delightful scenery as well. One scene sees Liv posing for a drawing on a summer afternoon her dress half off, baring a breast and laughing her head off! The scene reflects the laid back sexy romantic theme of the whole film. Simply a delightful movie that has to be watched on a summers day with a glass of wine!

What was the point of this?By MaryC (23 reviews) from Oxford , 23 Feb 2009Some good acting from Jeremy Irons and Donal McCann, but this film seemed to drag. Tha main character (Liv Tyler) said very little throughout so it was difficult to engage with her. At the end I wasn't sure what this film was really trying to say. It was only redeeemd by some nice shots of Tuscany.

Seen it all beforeBy a customer from Dartford , 11 Jan 2009Pretty film but predictable. A bit more of the Tuscan landscape would have balanced out the oddball collection of underdeveloped characters living in an artists' commune (apparently). Watch it if you're a girl with a bad cold and need cheering up. Don't watch it if you're averse to sex!
poorBy a customer from london , 09 Dec 2008Turgid nonsense. Taxi for Mr Irons!
Sexy without being sexualBy Gray2 (222 reviews) from London, England , 18 Nov 200819 year old Lucy (Liv Tyler) appears in every scene in this easy to follow movie about an American girl who visits a small village in Italy with two quests: to find the boy who wrote her love letters following her previous visit, four years earlier; and to determine the identity of her true father (because this is where she was conceived) using her mom's poetry for clues. So it's a double-thriller, and neither mystery is resolved until near the end. But meanwhile it's a very watchable coming-of-age movie. Nothing pornographic; but lots of titillating, erotic shots of nude or partially nude bodies (female and male) and of underwear. A great story and a great movie.
creepy unlikeable characters, poor scriptBy hostelgirl (16 reviews) from Hebden Bridge , 14 Oct 2008I was looking forward to this film as some of the reviews were good and i like Liv Tyler and thought there would be some good scenery. This is true and Liv Tyler is good but unfortunately thats it. The whole storyline is just about who will Liv Tyler lose her virginity to. It is full of pretentious rich 2d characters trying to out do each other with their rudeness and contrived 'open mindnessness'. It is creepy how they all take such an interest in who is going to sleep with Liv Tyler, particularly the older characters. It almost feels like it will lead up to some group orgy at then end (which it doesnt thankfully). It has the vibe that it was made by a pervy old director and some of the shots are so voyeuristic they are obscene. Give this one a miss. If you want a real 'finding yourself' movie with good scenery and cinematography, then watch 'Into the Wild' and see how it should be done.
