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

Expressive fairytale like live story
23 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

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!)
