Director/actor Di Gregorio, known for gently comic arthouse hits including THE SALT OF LIFE and MID-AUGUST LUNCH, serves up sun-drenched provincial Italy as the backdrop to late-life romance. After being kicked out of his retirement pad in Rome, a dapper aging professor heads for the village he had long ago abandoned along with his inheritance, the ancestral castle. He discovers the crumbling place now the prized turf of a clutch of squatters, including an elderly chef, an unemployed handyman, and even the local priest. Settling in and achieving détente with his new housemates, the professor gets a jolt to the libido when he is introduced to a radiant and curvaceous local lady of a certain age (Italian cinema icon Stefania Sandrelli, acclaimed for films including Bernardo Bertolucci’s THE CONFORMIST and comedies DIVORCE ITALIAN STYLE and SEDUCED AND ABANDONED). In Italian with English subtitles.
“A brilliant comedy with no shortage of hilarious scenes.”–Davide Abbatescianni, Cineuropa
