have had this since it first came out on VHS! I already have the DVD, but since I have watched it SO many times, I wanted to get the widescreen edition with the extras. This movie is dear to MY heart, not only because it is a great love story, but because we had a farm in Iowa for awhile and I grew up there. I have been through Francesca's house, and all the bridge's. It is gorgeous scenery and as Clint Eastwood as the director, it is such a beautiful movie! The story unfolds slow and sensual for what people may consider a farmwife in Iowa. She is basically a "hired hand" for her husand of many years she met in Italy when he was in the armed forces in Italy. She opens up to Robert Kincaid, the "hippie" photographer, who is not a real hippie! But the town gossips call him that. There is almost an immediate attraction between the two, it is awesome to watch her, she has been subdued in the romance dept. for a VERY long time. The love affair is only 4 days. Not to give out the whole story, it is so romantic, with Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood, with their own onscreen chemistry! I liked where they have their adult children unfolding their love for each other from her journals, and their reactions to it as well! This movie has beautiful scenery, great actors, great music, "Doe Eyes" is my favorite! It barely starts to play when the first attractions play out. There is a CD that accommpanies this movie that is great, especially for the jazz lover. THIS MOVIE IS WELL WORTH BUYING, even if you have never touched Iowa soil. It is a great movie to snuggle up to, a wonderful, tear jerker, it does pull at your heartstrings in a number of places. Just an exellent movie all around. It is writen quite a bit differently than the book, my opinion is that it is much better in many ways. Waller is a great author, but I do like the changes they made. Deffinetely a movie to watch more than once, you catch subtle things you didn't the first time, it's awesome.
I bought this DVD because I had read the book several years ago. It tells a story of a woman who is trapped in her present being co-existing in a passionless life, with a husband and two children who are unappreciative... until one day a stranger (professional photographer) arrives asking for directions to an old covered bridge. Her husband and children had gone away for a week and during their absence is when Meryl Streep begins her short-lived, but forever lasting love affair with stranger Clint Eastwood.
Cons....I thought Clint Eastwood did a poor acting job in this movie and wasn't very convincing.
this is my FAVORITE MOVIE!! A wonderfully romantic movie about a National Geographic photographer (Clint Eastwood)who gets lost looking for a covered bridge in the area)and a rural Iowa house wife (Meryl Streep) who meet while her family is at a state fair for several days. Both Eastwood and Streep make the movie belivable and are perfect for each other in the movie.
I read this book years ago in one evening. I usually have a hard time forcing myself to read a book but I could NOT put this one down. A beautiful love story but a tear jurker too. Simply an awesom story. I never would have cast Clint Eastwood as the leading actor in this story but surprisingly he did an amazing job. Hard to think of him as a gentle kind man after so many western hard guy parts but he surprised me. This is a great story to add to your collection if you are a romantic. A wife and mother of two children finds herself home alone on the farm for a few days while her family has gone to a fair. A famous photographer happens by and a forbidden romance occurs. The woman is torn between her family obligations and this new love that she could not fight nor deny.... A must see!
I bought because I only had a VHS copy and wanted it in DVD format. This is a great love story with Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep. The story of a lonely Italian war bride who engages in an affair with a photographer who has come to Madison County, Iowa in order to create a photographic essay on the covered bridges in the area.
