All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
Montreal-born Christophe Beck -- who previously worked with Tuscan director Audrey Wells on Guinevere -- became quite the Hollywood first-call composer in 2003, scoring Just Married, Confidence, American Wedding, and Dickie Roberts in addition to Under the Tuscan Sun, a whimsical jaunt that follows Diane Lane's character as she rediscovers love and life in Tuscany. The score incorporates three musical voices braided together: a contemporary theme, for Lane's character, Frances; another paying homage to Federico Fellini's composer, Nino Rota; and a third offering a comic
