• One of the best love stories of the past several decades. It is warm, touching and funny as well. The depiction of small Italian village life is very well done.

    The supporting cast is very good but kudos go to Reno and Ruehl. They are great, and very charming. They were able to make the audience feel the love and passion they had for each other without the gratuitous spit-swapping and sweaty bed scenes that pass for love in most movies today. Every husband would love Ruehl's reply to Reno when he asks Ruehl why she married him and she says, "You touched my soul." I should be so lucky.
