Experimental filmmaker Tonino De Bernardi offers us a look into Italy's past and present with this fusion of documentary and dramatic styles. Carlo and Grazia are a middle-aged couple who live in a small town high in the mountains of Tuscany. They operate an independent bakery and make bread the same way its been done for generations, baking the loves in a wood-fueled oven and distributing their handiwork to their customers themselves. Carlo and Grazia work long hours seven days a week, and just as their predecessors before them, they do so without complaint. Their real-life story is crosscut with the fictional story of a handful of twenty-somethings living near Camellia's Square in a suburb of Rome, who are trying to decide what to make of the multitude of opportunities available to them as they navigate the tricky paths of life and love. Pane/Piazza Delle Camelie was an official selection at the 2009 Rotterdam International Film Festival.
