Tulipani is a movie full of surprises,that follow each other in a fast sequence and leave no time to reflect. But reflection is not needed because the story is to passionate to think about it. One has to undergo it. Italian drama, together with the well known Dutch straightness, makes a wonderful combination. Over the top, of course, but still convincing. Real life events are surprisingly combined with fairytale like elements. The drama changes into humor and vice verse. The storyline is ingeniously put in a funny framework. It's fresh and smart, funny and tender.. A great movie for parents with older kids, or in my situation, a young adult. Somehow my son of 19 years old got IN the story too..(and that's a huge compliment!)
