Critic Reviews for Bread & Tulips
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.
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.
Audience Reviews for Bread & Tulips
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.
