Bread And Tulips Review


Good
An unhappy Italian housewife, a lonely waiter, a goofy masseuse, lots of love, and gorgeous scenery all come together in Bread and Tulips, which proves charming despite its covering of predictable, well-worn material.

After a couple rides from oddball strangers, however, Rosalba follows a whim. She continues right past her hometown to get dropped off in Venice instead. She's never been there and she's on vacation, after all. Her adventure finds her meeting Fernando (Bruno Ganz), a kindly, aging (and suicidal) waiter from a failing restaurant who offers to put her up in a spare room of his apartment. Two days later she takes a job at a florist's shop in a quiet, cobblestone corner of the city and begins a new life, wondering how long it will be before her conscience calls her home.
