Decent enough flick with nice scenery -- and ended exactly the way it should have
Verified purchase
I watched this film primarily motivated by the opportunity to see some excellent shots of Italian beach scenery -- but didn't have high hopes for an original storyline. Overall, it was ... well ... a "quiet" film with no big surprises. Not that I need crap blowing up all the time (sooooo over the current state of the movie industry -- hello, we're not all 15 year old boys). But, it was definitely cliche given the oh-so-empty marriage narrative, and the characters themselves weren't really that compelling. All in all, though, it wasn't too terrible (again -- ITALY scenery) -- and Kate B pulled off a somewhat decent character study. As for the other reviewer's disappointment in the ending? Well, if it made you so upset, then the movie probably succeeded more than you thought it did. I personally think it ended just as it should have == it was realistic and in perfect alignment as to what the main character needed to do to truly move forward in her life journey. Bottom line? This is an okay rental (I actually would say 2.5 stars if Amazon had a 2.5 option) -- but maybe wait 'til it goes down in price a bit.

A beautiful young woman frustrated with her husband

A beautiful young woman frustrated with her husband, life and marriage. Meets someone that isn't anything like what she's used to. Had fun. Cautionary tale for all husbands.

the other reviews must be ignored

The others reviews complained about not enough explanatory dialogue. I found it clear what the characters were thinking and feeling without that added dialogue. The addition of which would not have illustrated the bleakness of the state in which all of these characters find themselves. A child who is not fully developed is swept into some sort of black hole of grief that is being suffered by a woman who is seeking a child and for the time being is consumed with only her own need and disregards the consequences of her actions. The other review states the grandmother's recorded story adds nothing to the plot however I found it to be the true narration of the story. The grandmother is telling of her experiences during the war while Jane begins her own war and destroys her own homeland in some sort of path of self destruction. I found the film to be riveting and interesting, nothing I would watch again as none of the characters are particularly likeable nor do they elicit much empathy - particularly Jane.

Surprised at how much I loved this film.

This is a very interesting film . It was a beautiful and thought provoking window into everyone's life or perhaps only mine. It ended with me being totally invested. I am going to watch it again. The acting was superb as was the scenery.

Dry, Boring, To many moment's if silence, nah pass. Scenery was pretty but that was about it to be quite honest.

I thought it a lovely movie. The scenery alone is reason to watch. It will get a second viewing before my rental runs out. It's the kind of movie I enjoy on a second go-round.

I love this movie

I like the truth reveal scene when Jane told Leonard about her affair and the deep reason behind it. And he is a decent guy who understands it.
