Bread and Tulips (Italy)

Just wondering if anyone has seen this film and if so, how was it?

Beautiful romantic story with a good dose of stylish humor. Highly recommended. The R1 DVD is also rather well produced.

Re: Bread and Tulips (Italy)

thanks Pro-B. I was at Rasputin Music in San Jose, Ca browsing the used DVD section and I came across this. The cover art caught my attention and it sounded pretty interesting. Is Bruno Ganz the guy that plays Hitler in Downfall? I just picked this movie up at Borders the other day but I haven't watched it yet.

Yes. You should also rent Agata e la tempesta (available through Film Movement) - another beautiful, similarly-themed film with Licia Maglietta.

Romance for the mature crowd

Re: Bread and Tulips (Italy)

lol Joey, you only have 7 foreign language films and I would have never expected that movie to be one of them. if it sounds like I'm putting your collection down, I'm not. You have 4 times as many foreign films as me hehe

and alot more than me overall as well!!

thanks for your comments. I think I will pick this up from amazon in the near future

I agree. A wonderful film all together. Very much in the same vein as Shirley Valentine.

Agata and the Storm aka Agata e la tempesta is more of the same, but not as good as Bread and Tulips.

However, I bought the dirt cheap Universe Laser Region 3 instead of the Region 1, which I found it rather pricey.

I'll add my endorsement as well! I really loved this movie, especially Bruno Ganz' performance.

It did. As I mentioned above, through Film Movement. It is flawed, but it is your only option if you do not with to import the properly converted Australian PAL disc.

Re: Bread and Tulips (Italy)

I was disappointed with this movie overall. It's a sweet story, and a great performance by the lead actress, but it moved along verrrrrrrrry slowly, and we didn't get to see much of Venice in it. So good movie, yes, but slow: and I've never been able to bring myself to watch it a second time.
