Bread and Tulips



Directed by Silvio Soldini
Italy, 2000, 114 minutes


Rosalba is a housewife in Pescara with teenage sons, married since 21 to a plumbing supplier. When the tour bus leaves her, and her husband calls to tell her to stay put, she rebels slightly and hitchhikes toward home, deciding on a whim to continue to Venice. She lucks into a room in the flat of Fernando, a diffident, formal Icelander; befriends Grazia, a holistic masseuse; and gets a job at the flower shop of Fermo, a cranky anarchist. Her husband sends a portly plumber to find her. Will duty and maternal instinct win out, or will Alba stay in Venice, combining Rome's rationality with Greece's imagination to find her true Italian self?
