Overview

Pastry, Gypsy dancing, and Scott Baio all feature prominently in this independent romantic comedy from Pittsburgh, which focuses on the relationship between three brothers and an elderly Italian couple. Dominic Baio, Eddie Billy Mott, and Pino Shuler Hensley are brothers who have little in common aside from the bakery they own together. Dominic works for a management firm and specializes in firing people; Pino is mentally handicapped; and Eddie is a womanizer. The brothers are close friends with Massimo and Bella, the Italian couple who live upstairs, and when Dominic learns that Bella is sick, he decides to do whatever he can to make her feel better. This includes a full-fledged attempt to get Massimo and Bella's errant daughter Lucca to come home for Christmas. This being a romantic comedy, it doesn't take long for Dominic to realize that he has other motives for wanting Lucca to come home, motives that don't have a great deal to do with Bella's health. The Bread, My Sweet was screened at the 2002 Philadelphia Festival of World Cinema. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx

    Wonderful! (the sappy cover art doesn't do it justice)

    If you enjoy the character development and the family dynamics in movies like Life is Beautiful, Return to Me, IQ, and My Big Fat Greek Wedding, you will be completely impressed with this movie. The characters are beautifully nuanced -- no stock characters -- and each of their stories are explored through fantastic, believable dialogue.

    *Spoiler*

    The movie explores the meaning of selfless love by presenting the ways each character comes to terms with saying goodbye to Bella. It is a touching plot, yet it(thankfully!) never becomes overly sentimental.
