Under the Tuscan Sun...

This movie might not have done well at the box office, but this is one of the movies I completely enjoyed...(well.I have a reputation of liking movies which are usually not very popular;-)* The backdrop of vineyards in Tuscany.
* Sunflowers & purple grapes.
* A dilapidated villa called 'Bramasole' with peeling paint.
* Single ornate tap in the middle of the house with no water.
* Of new beginnings in a land unknown.

* Blossoming of friendships.
* Giant wrought Iron bed with Mother Mary's image.
* Italian men on Piaggio scooters.
* Huge kitchen with a black-board for the menu(I love!)
* Olive picking in the olive grove.
* Drinking loads of red wine.
* Lines like ..."It's market day in Cortona, the piazza is an on-going party and everyone is invited".

Could it get any better than this...:-)
I watch then*sigh* then watch then *sigh* then watch.....

This weekend I picked another movie called 'A good year'...why?
You guessed it right!
It is set in the vineyards of Provence;-)

Maybe we could write a new
scene for the film where the
Italian man on the Piaggio
scooter could write the
menu for dinner on the chalkboard
while we pick olives ...

I haven't seen this film -
but I shall:)

I absolutely adore this film. I thought about it's message for a long while after...you do get what you wish for. You need only eyes to see it, eyes of gratitude.

I love both of those movies. Everything just seems so serene & complete in the south of France.

I like that they go to the Amalfi Coast in this movie. Thought the best Amalfi Coast scenery is probably "A Good Woman" with Helen Hunt and Scarlett Johannsen--or "The Talented Mr. Ripley", but that is a pretty dark film.

Great film, but bring Tuscany closer and visit my website. I've been living here for 10 years!
