  1. A movie about serendipity and spontaneity.
  2. A charming little film, filled with eccentric characters and ingratiating performances.
  3. Soldini's amiable new comedy suggests that an older, better Italy of imagination, rationality and civility survives on the fringes of a modern nation obsessed, like most others, with consumerism, empty prosperity and easy pleasure.
  4. Soldini's consistently understated touch, and a poignant turn by Licia Maglietta as the confused and bemused main character, turns Bread and Tulips into a character study worth studying.
  5. Too lethargic and strung-out for its own good. Thankfully, it casts a pleasant, amusing and touching spell anyway, but more energy and a markedly shorter running time might have turned a sunny diversion into something more special.
  6. A sweet-spirited, extremely well-cast little comedy.
  7. A little too shopworn and pokey to be more than a respectable European diversion.
