Enchanted April -- This slow-paced gem is about the civilizing influence of Italy on beleaguered Londoners both male and female and has it's own civilizing influence on the viewer. It's almost like taking a little mini-trip to Italy, a gorgeously filmed enchantment.

Trivia:
After filming wrapped, the cast and crew later remarked upon a number of supernatural experiences while filming on location in Italy. Alfred Molina reportedly felt an ice-cold hand grasp the back of his neck on a night-shoot, while Miranda Richardson felt her knee-high dress being aggressively yanked to the floor while waiting to film in an old castle. There were also several instances of crew-members having to leave the set after suddenly feeling unwell.See more »

Quotes:
Mrs. Fisher:That's a beautiful dress...
Caroline:No I've had it a hundred years.
Mrs. Fisher:...but you must be very cold in it. Its easy to catch a chill here after dark. You look as if you had nothing on underneath.
Caroline:I haven't.

It's Good for Your Heart!!, 9 August 2001
Author: GGCarl from Alameda, CA

I read all the reviews here at IMDB, and you know what? Not one of them is negative, with many saying it's their favorite movie of all!! And it's no wonder. Enchanted April is beautiful in so many ways.

But most of all, the movie is good for your heart. Before our eyes and ears, the characters transform from their tragic and flawed previous selves into persons full of life and love. While the story might be nothing earth-shattering, to watch the characters unfold as if caterpillars becoming beautiful butterflies is so wonderfully satisfying. If you have a heart, Enchanted April will make it feel warm and full.

I hope that soon the widescreen DVD will become available. I have it on tape, but better justice would be done with the original theatrical version.
