A jubilant chronicle of post-war rural Italy!

The quartermaster Antonio Carotenuto is assigned to a small village in Abruzzo. Old handsome still green, he runs after several hares including “Fantassine la piquante”, the most beautiful and poorest in the country, who only has her donkey and her purity of soul. But she is in love with the young rifleman Pietro Stelluti, very shy who does not dare to declare himself. All this does not fail to make people talk in this land of superstitions where nothing escapes the eye and the comments of the curious...

A commercial triumph and great classic of transalpine cinema directed by Luigi Comencini, Bread, Love and Fantasy presents a joyful amorous imbroglio against a backdrop of village satire. The buffoonery of Vittorio de Sica and the banter of Gina Lollobrigida – who plays her best role here – bring lightness and flavor to this fine caricature of village intrigues. Between neorealism and Italian comedy, Bread, love and fantasy is a perfect combination of delicacy and causticity, grace and rusticity.
