The epitome of what a feel-good movie is supposed to be but rarely is, this one is beautiful to look at and life-affirming to think about, and it doesn't have a pretentious bone in its head.

With a performance of such depth and beauty it overshadows the film's gorgeous Italian scenery, Diane Lane owns the screen in 'Under the Tuscan Sun.'

This movie, benign and conventional as it is, needs a gutsy performance to keep it from sheer sogginess. The biggest surprise the movie generates is why it's taken this long for Lane's career to take off.

Sensual, luscious, vibrant filmmaking, and not a single frame of it is tepid or mundane.

Warmth and joy fill the movie. Some of it comes from that sun over Tuscany, but most of it comes from the inner radiance of Diane Lane.

The movie is sweet but deeply suspect: It's like Lost Horizon re-imagined by a realtor.

... some of the most beautiful photography in any film I've seen this year.

[Has] an emotional core of realism that is so precise and delicate and pinpoint accurate that it's overwhelming...

Under the Tuscan Sun pretends to be juicy, but it doesn't allow any dribbles. It purports to make love all over us, but not without laying down lots of paper towels first.
