Beautiful, simple black and white film about a man who buys a half-dozen tulips for a woman who immediately rejects him, throwing the flowers to the ground. For the rest of the movie, the tulips find their way to people who seem to need them the most, including a bag lady, a homeless man, an elderly couple who are still in love after countless years, a woman who seemingly just lost her husband, and another who is weeping uncontrollably for reasons unknown to the viewer.
Silent but for a simple piano score, “Six Tulips” is remarkable, not just for its acting or technical successes, but because it’s brave enough to be a quiet story of emotion and completely devoid of cynicism. Others might find it schmaltzy or sappy, but I found it to be refreshing, honest and emotional.
