BREAD AND TULIPS

by Silvio Soldini

synopsis

An Italian woman, Rosalba, on vacation with her family, gets left behind at a rest stop and, instead of rejoining her husband and two sons, decides to hitchhike back home. Along the way, she gets sidetracked in Venice and, inexplicably, decides to stick around for a while, taking up residence with an Icelandic maitre d'O and landing a job as the assistant to a crotchety old florist.
