Um filme charmoso e cativante.
| Original Score: 5/5
The last 20 minutes of the film include some of the most romantic filmmaking in a long time.
| Original Score: 75/100
A feel-good film with a schmaltzy love offering of tulips and bread.
| Original Score: C
It is a very positive film in many ways. It argues that just about anybody can be redeemed.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
A slow-going but very, very sweet movie.
| Original Score: B
Although Maglietta's appealing as Rosalba, cowriter and director Silvio Scoldini's movie is a little too shopworn and pokey to be more than a respectable European diversion.
| Original Score: 2/5
A well-intentioned, warm movie that becomes increasingly saccharine and silly.
I can't recall ever having seen this actress [Maglietta], but here she commands the screen.
Leisurely paced and very easy to watch.
It's almost as if Solidini ... figured that all he had to do was put a crowd of eccentric characters together and magic would occur.
The heart knows what it wants in Bread And Tulips, and so do the filmmakers. Every eccentric character, plot-twist and contrivance is a means to that end.
As for star Licia Maglietta, the appeal of the film is nearly all in her presence.
It's all very sweet, but the film goes in too many directions.
An airy, scrumptious valentine of a romantic fable.
An endearing romantic daydream, but misses the bus where matters of reality are concerned.
| Original Score: 3/5
Like a pleasant, gentle book that, once finished, makes you think, 'Gee, I could have spent that time reading something better.'
A feel-good helping of cinematic tiramisu--it's sweet and spongy, but rather clammy and artificial.
Charms the viewer as it communicates a noble message about the need to remove oneself from the meaninglessness of daily life in order to appreciate its full worth.
Though there's no denying that Bread and Tulips is just a feel-good movie, it is a delightfully executed, simple, and unassuming film...
| Original Score: B+
A slight tale, charmingly told.
