Consensus: Bread and Tulips is a sweet-natured comedy offering gentle, escapist entertainment.

Washington Post

Although Maglietta's appealing as Rosalba, cowriter and director Silvio Scoldini's movie is a little too shopworn and pokey to be more than a respectable European diversion.

It's all very sweet, but the film goes in too many directions.

Um filme charmoso e cativante.

It's almost as if Solidini ... figured that all he had to do was put a crowd of eccentric characters together and magic would occur.

The last 20 minutes of the film include some of the most romantic filmmaking in a long time.

As for star Licia Maglietta, the appeal of the film is nearly all in her presence.

It's a feel-good movie to see with a friend on a rainy afternoon when you both need a little getaway.

A feel-good film with a schmaltzy love offering of tulips and bread.
