Watch Under The Tuscan Sun - Alternative Versions.
"Under the Tuscan Sun" is a polarizing film that seems to leave viewers (and
critics) either in love with a story of growth and renewal or dismissive of
its line. I'm firmly in the former camp.
Based so loosely on Frances Mayes's own account of her regeneration in
beautiful Italy as to carry an end credit pronouncing that substantial
fictionalization replaced key true details, writer and director Audrey Wells
crafted a stunning vehicle for Diane Lane whose radiance projects from the
screen powerfully. And in every scene.
Diane Lane, as the changed-from-the-memoir Frances, abandons San Francisco
after her never shown cad husband divorces her, getting the house she once
loved. Frances is a writer and literary critic. Why does she leave S.F.?
Two of her closest friends give her a ticket for a gay bus tour of Italy and
she jumps off the bus to look into a ramshackle old country house up for
sale. Impetuosity? Definitely. Believable? Yes, actually.
Frances' new house isn't a handyman's special, it's a contractor's assurance
of food on the table for a very long time. Frances adapts to the house and
the locals with remarkable aplomb. Tuscany is sunny but its light fades
before Frances's challenged but resilient commitment to not just restore a
house but to create a home. The two aren't the same. I'm not sure how many
male directors could so well create that reality.
Director Wells tells the story from a woman's heart but with a breadth of
humor and drama that should appeal to anyone who wants to believe, or needs
to hope, that there really is a light at the end of the tunnel of marital
infidelity and dissolution.
Supporting Diane Lane is Sandra Oh as Patti, her closest friend. In
relatively short scenes, Ms. Oh displays a lively and laconic grasp not only
of her friend's life but also of her own which is not, as they say today,
devoid of "issues."
Lindsay Duncan is Katharine, an older woman determined to hold on to her now
fading attractiveness through a blend of humor, earthiness - and alcohol.
Her character may be predictable but she's also fun.
Raoul Bova has garnered some press attention as handsome Marcello, the
romantically available and affluent Italian. That's a character we've seen
in many, many films and Bova delivers an expectedly satisfactory but hardly
Yes, Diane Lane is beautiful but there is much more to her acting than a
shining appearance. Her facial gestures, mirroring her emotions as they
shift from moment to moment, are the product of extraordinary acting
ability. And her character draws a powerful portrayal.
Credit also must go to cinematographer Geoffrey Simpson. Perhaps it would
be impossible for a blind camera director to turn in anything but a gorgeous
visage of rural and urban Italy but Simpson did do a marvelous job of making
the locales come alive.
This is a film for adults, for people who can understand pain and the search
for recovery and understand the difficulty of coming back from a space that
once offered the mirage of safety and security.
I loved this film.
