The Salt of Life

Writer-director-actor Gianni Di Gregorio follows up his 2010 sleeper hit Mid-August Lunch with another fine comedy. Here, Gianni plays "Gianni," a middle-aged retiree who is ignored by his mother, his wife, his daughter and basically everyone else in Rome. When a womanizing friend suggests a little female companionship might be the spice our protagonist is looking for, Gianni sets out to find a mistress. Deceptively small, bittersweet and self-effacing, this comedy of errors is rich with gentle satire. In Italian with English subtitles. 90 minutes
