This a simple, credible storyline based on strong characters which are well acted out, all set in the glorious landscape that is northern Italy.

OK.....now, please assure me that this isn't another Tim Burton-Johnny Depp combo. :wink:

I guess "northern Italy" is everything north of Naples. You know, like "upstate New York" to a City person is everything north of Central Park.

Seriously, I'm a sucker for that kind of movie. It goes on my Netflix list now. :)

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.

On my many trips around Italy over the years I suppose that I have fallen into that trap all right....that the North is, in fact, anything north of Naples. I have never actually ventured down "South" (of Naples) so I am not sure what I am missing there....probably a lot, someone will no doubt say. Anyway I hope that you enjoy it as I think that it makes for wonderful viewing :D
