Bread and Tulips
Our next Rialto Recommends was made in Italy in 2000 but arrived in US theatres in the fall of 2001. Written and directed by Silvio Soldini BREAD AND TULIPS is an endearing light comedy about a woman who spontaneously becomes a resident of Venice after her family left her behind. While enjoying the wonderful people she meets she achieves a new life and the first time independent of her family. The New York Times said "We traipse into this magical world as tourists, but Mr. Soldini, with graceful good humor, invites us to pretend that we're natives." While the Washington Post declared BREAD AND TULIPS "Sweet, delicately comic and a complete delight." BREAD AND TULIPS is streaming on the Roku Channel, Vudu, Tubi, and FilmRise. Take a lovely little trip to Italy with BREAD AND TULIPS.
