Based on the acclaimed novel by William Trevor, My House in Umbria is a charming, evocative drama about a group of travelers in Italy who find solace and friendship after being thrown together by
Falling neatly into the Enchanted April and Under the Tuscan Sun category, the made-for-HBO My House in Umbria boasts lovely Italian vistas and comforting Englishness. But it begins with a note of violence: on a train rolling through the sunny countryside, a terrorist bomb detonates, killing a handful of passengers. The strangers that survive recuperate at the villa of an eccentric but kindly romance novelist, also a survivor of the blast. She’s played by Maggie Smith, who bustles through the role… More >>

  2. I watched this on reccommendation from a friend.
    It was awful.
    So predictable.
    So ant-climactic.
    So mind numbingly dull.
    Avoid this film at all costs.

    I had high hopes for this movie, having fallen in love with “Under A Tuscan Sun” and hoping that “My House In Umbria” would be similar.

    I couldn’t have been further from the truth. Quite frankly, I hated this movie. I thought Maggie Smith was pompous and incredibly annoying, particularly in her pursuit of the American which didn’t seem to fit anywhere into the movie.

    If it’s Italy you’re craving do yourself a favor and rent “Under A Tuscan Sun”.

  5. This movie is a CHEAP knock-off of Enchanted April. Enchanted April is an uplifting, feel-good movie, one of our favorites. “My House..” has its moments, but for the most part has some VERY DARK undercurrents and images that cast a pall over the entire movie. It leaves you feeling depressed and icky! It is like the EVIL TWIN to Enchanted April which I highly recommend to men as well as Chicks! Guys will love Enchanted April. Shame on My House in Umbria for such a sordid copy catting of Enchanted April.
