"Under the Tuscan Sun" is an amiable film that, in the tradition of escapist fiction, provides a nice, scenic getaway with just enough drama to keep the story from getting stagnant.

Offers Americans the ultimate fantasy vacation. It's a beautiful, sunny, fresh air trip to Europe without the jet lag, language problems, money problems, or any other trivialities.

En la vida real la gente no suele ser tan impulsiva. Por eso películas como ésta son disfrutables: nos ofrecen la fantasía de lo que sería nuestra vida si nos animáramos.

Desmoronando a partir da metade da projeção, o filme se beneficia apenas da sedutora performance de Lane, da bela fotografia e das maravilhosas locações.

The movie is frothy and light and hasn't a brain in its head, but it's so beautiful to look at and so positive and uplifting, it's hard not to like.

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.
