A film I’ve seen recently

The title of the film I’ve seen recently is Under the Tuscan Sun. It is based on the novel written by Frances Meyes. It’s about an American woman – Frances who comes to Italy and buys and old house there. The film was released in 2003. It is directed by Audrey Wells, it stars Diane Lane and it is set in Tuscany in the present day.

I like the film because it’s positive and uplifting and it makes me smile every time I watch it. My favourite part is when Frances and Marcello meet for the first time in Rome and they go to meet Marcello’s family.

Although the plot is rather simple and there are some clichés, the film is worth watching because of beautiful landscapes, Italian culture and lifestyle. I really recommend it if you want to see a warm, romantic film.
