  • Bread & Tulips

    Tonight I rented "Bread & Tulips". This is an Italian film set in Venice. More subtitles but a good chance for me to practice listening in Italian. I absolutely adore Venice. It is one of my favorite places so I had to rent this one.

    This is a romantic comedy about a woman who gets sick of fighting with her husband so takes a spontaneous vacation in Venice. I did find this film funny and very cute. The problem is, translate cute and you get "chick flick". You guys probably won't like it. But I enjoyed this film a lot.

    The scene of getting lost in Venice with a crazy map reminded me of my first time there. Oh what a nice place, La Serenissima

    Anyway, Ebert and Roeper gave it two thumbs up and I will add my thumb too.

    I don't hate "chick flics" because the opposite usually means bimbos w/big hooters, guys w/guns (and no brains), profuse swearing as dialogue, toilet humour and no real acting.

    And there's a limit to how much of that I will actually pay for.
    Life is change. Built models for decades.
    Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
    I didn't for a long time either.

      I agree. I am not into toilet humor either. As for sex and violence, well when it advances the artistic merrit of the film that is great, but when it is just there to appeal to those instincts then I don't care for it. After all, if you want to watch sex an adult can get a porn movie. Why disguise the desire by renting a bad film? Your wife knows what you are doing. You are not fooling her by saying, "But this is supposed to be very funny"

      Of course Willie was in Dukes of Hazard and everyone loves Willie. I am sure that is why all the guys watched this one
