BREAD AND TULIPS PRESENTED AT THE ICCC IN HOUSTON BY THE CONSULATES OF ITALY AND GERMANY

The Consulates of Italy and Germany will present at the Italian Cultural and Community Center in Houston Silvio Soldini's "Bread and Tulips". 

An Italian housewife, Rosalba Barletta (Licia Maglietta) finds herself stranded during a family vacation. Instead of waiting for her controlling businessman husband, she hitchhikes her way home, only to impulsively detour to Venice where she will take a vacation from her family and from routine. She finds accomodation with philosophic server Fernando Girasole (played by renowned German actor Bruno Ganz), makes friends with his neighbour, finds a job with a florist and soon finds herself enjoying her new life. Meanwhile her husband has sent a bumbling plumber, Costantino (Battiston) as a private detective to find her. After meeting her and falling in love with Grazia, Rosalba's neighbor across the hall, Costantino calls Rosalba's husband and quits, claiming that he is unable to find her. However, her sister appears and convinces Rosalba to return to her home in Pescara. Rosalba will return home, but will leave immediately for her new life. 

The film will be screened on Thursday March 20 at 6.30 pm. For further information click here
