About: Bread and Tulips Film Discussion
Please join us for a discussion of the Italian Classic film, "Bread and Tulips" on Sunday, October 27th from 1 to 4pm @MetroWines. Ciao Asheville Film Coordinator Robert Formento will lead the discussion.
"Bread and Tulips" Synopsis: Silvio Soldino directs this gentle comedy about a housewife who temporarily flees from the grinding tedium of her household duties and drifts into a world of amicable weirdos. When Rosalba (Licia Maglietta) is accidentally forgotten by her tour bus at a roadside restaurant, she does not wait there as instructed. She decides to hitchhike home, but on a whim, she ends up in Venice instead. Quietly exhilarated at the prospect of being alone for a spell, she checks into an inn run by a kindly yet eccentric Icelander (Bruno Ganz). Her plans to return the next day are thwarted when she misses her train and does not have enough money to buy another ticket. Soon she is gainfully employed at a flower shop run by an irascible old anarchist. Though her teenaged sons do not seem all that bothered by their mom's absence, Rosalba's husband grows increasing agitated at the interruption in his routine, so he hires a bumbling detective to track her down.
The event, sponsored by Ciao Asheville, and popcorn is "on the house." $7 for a glass of Red or White Italian Wine.
