The Italian "Bagdad Café" !
26 April 2005 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Pané e Tulipani is both very atypical and simple : a woman about 40 years old is on a package holiday with her husband and sons when the bus forgets her in a service station. As she feels angry and disappointed, she decides to go back home on her own. As she hitches to Pescara, the town where she lives, she eventually takes the road to Venice. And here starts her story... She discovers happiness, joy, pleasure again. She realizes that the life she leaded until now was not the one she deserved. This is not a sentimental love story ; this is a "road-movie" full of hilarious events, fine humor, laughable situations which follow naturally. A film about the beauty of life, friendship, love and discovering.

Furthermore, the soundtrack is perfect ; it makes you think of the french "Amelie Poulain" by Jean-Pierre Jeunet (music by Yann Tiersen). And last but not least, The characters are very touching. Pané e tulipani is wonderfully performed by the incredible Bruno Ganz, the charming Licia Maglietta and the funny Giuseppe Battiston and Marina Massironi.

A film that you might look at more than once ; this is truly the Italian Bagdad Café.
