In order to save money, they advertise for two other women to join them. Mrs. Fisher is an elderly widow is struggling with a lonely and regimented existence. She jumps at the chance to join the vacation. Lady Caroline Dester is a gorgeous flapper who has been grabbed one too many times and believes that she is sick of men. They arrive in San Salvatore.

Excellent acting and engaging story line. A definite chick flick although the boys seemed to enjoy it as well. It didn't get two golden globe awards for nothing!

Could not get into story line. Was good to see Joan Plowright and Jim Broadbent. Too many dark scenes, poor lighting. Some nice flower gardens.

I have loved this movie since I saw it in the theater at about 22. It's not for everyone - being a period piece and not full of 'action' - in the book the action is the changes to the characters. It's lyrical and subtle and about taking a chance and opening oneself to change, hope and love. About transformations and finding understanding and friendships in unlikely places. I've seen it about 6 times and it never fails to make me happy.

Michael Kitchen is a standout no matter what roles he tackles, but I was delighted to find this old gem. The story is timeless and the acting 'interesting'. Joan Plowright was outstanding.

I first saw this movie many, MANY years ago (I think on TV!) and it was such a delight to come across it, quite by accident, once again. It'll make you want to drop everything and flee, immediately, to a villa by the sea...

The dumbest movie I have seen in a long time.
This is an overacted British farce.

What could be better on a disenchanted February day than Enchanted April? Share this rush of beauty and happiness with someone you love.

I hope you're not in the habit of seeing dead people, however distinguished - it's not in the best of taste!
