Bread & Tulips (Pane E Tulipani) Review


Good

A dissatisfied Italian housewife finds unexpected freedom when she's left behind at a tour bus stop while on a Greek vacation with her burdensome family in the charming grown-up romance "Bread and Tulips."

Decked out in full middle-aged tourist regalia -- sun visor, fanny pack, leggings, running shoes, windbreaker tied at her waist -- Rosalba (Licia Maglietta) has a private little pout outside the gift shop after a cell phone reprimand from her temperamental husband (who didn't notice she wasn't on the bus). Then she shakes it off and decides not to catch up to the family, darn it, but to hitchhike straight home.

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.
