Storyline

TULIPANI tells the story of a romantic Dutch farmer named Gauke (Gijs Naber) who after losing his farm during the floods of 1953 is determined to never ever have wet socks again. He cycles to the sizzling hot south of Italy to start a new life and ends up at the outskirts of a small village in Puglia. Due to his fairylike and miraculous tulip trade, his passionate love-life and his turbulent scuffles with the dubious local business practices, he becomes a living legend - to then suddenly disappear. Thirty years later, an Italian police inspector (Giancarlo Giannini) attempts to unravel the story, but struggles to distinguish fact from fiction. With the help of the young Canadian Anna (Ksenia Solo) he discovers what truly happened. Written by The Producers

A fantastic foray into life, love and what drives us all around the world
15 January 2018 | by albamerlotSee all my reviews

Gauke, a farmer from Holland, dreams of a better life. Following a timewarped bike ride across Europe, he literally lands in a tiny village that has the one trait he desires - no chance of flooding. A series of triumphs and tragedies follow in the most beautiful of settings and ultimately we discover that life is what we make it - raw, real, romantic and not always how we planned.

I am a little bit in love with this film, it is all the things I look for in a movie. An intriguing story, interestingly told. Gorgeous settings shown in their natural state. Characters that are just odd enough to inhabit your own memories of friends and relatives past, but fleshed-out enough to be believable. A lovely score, authentic costumes and splashes of colour. A wonderful, down-to-earth sense of humour that is sublime without being ridiculous and just a touch of whimsy and fantasy.

I am not a seeker of subtitled films, but I don't shy away from them either. The multiple perspectives serve to explain the story well, and the subtitles never become confusing or repetitive. This would be a great film to rid yourself of a fear of subtitles. Reminds me a lot of the 1991 film Mediterraneo.
