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.
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.
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.
A slight tale, charmingly told.
It's a feel-good movie to see with a friend on a rainy afternoon when you both need a little getaway.
Um filme charmoso e cativante.
The last 20 minutes of the film include some of the most romantic filmmaking in a long time.
A feel-good film with a schmaltzy love offering of tulips and bread.
It is a very positive film in many ways. It argues that just about anybody can be redeemed.
A slow-going but very, very sweet movie.
A well-intentioned, warm movie that becomes increasingly saccharine and silly.
A pleasant film. Not fabulous, but engaging and sweetly amusing, with some enjoyable oddball characters and cute plot twists. What holds the whole thing together well is a likeable, warm, centered performance my Licia Maglietta, whose manages to keep her role from becoming pathetic, silly, or annoying--as it might have done in the hands of a different actress. BUT that being said, I almost turned it off several times due to boredom.
A great and wonderful movie set in beautiful Venice. Licia Maglietta had incredible acting in this and would recommend this movie to anyone. :)
A light comedy about a woman regaining her sense of adventure and independence, the type of movie that leaves a happy feeling. The woman in question is Rosalba, an unappreciated housewife. She lives to serve her family, mistaking her lifestyle for happiness. While on vacation, she goes to the bathroom only to find that her family left, forgetting to take her with them.
After seeing Bread and Tulips, the words that come to mind are "sweet" and "charming". It isn't a great film but it is a nice film that has its heart in the right place. You're behind Rosalba and her decision every step of the way, especially when you meet the people that become her new family.
Beware this film if you make your own wine, because there may be no better movie to sit down in front of with a partner and a fresh bottle. The real trouble is that it's such a delight to watch, you could do it again and again and again.
Without summarizing too much, Rosalba deserts her family and teaches them a lesson by disappearing to Venice for an extended period of time after a less-than-enjoyable family vacation. In Venice she discovers herself and la Dolce Vita, making new friends but still feeling the bittersweet pull back home, all the while farcically evading the "private detective" sent after her by her husband. A great escape, witty and beautiful, this film won a pile of Donatello awards (Italy's equivalent to the Oscars), and it's light-hearted without being brainless. Che buon film!
