"A light, frisky Italian comedy...a little like sitting out on a sunny European piazza, the breeze blowing across your cheek while you slowly nurse a glass of cool Chablis."--David Jenkins, Little White Lies

"This likeable, light-as-a-feather Italian comedy will top up your reserves of bonhomie."--David Calhoun, Time Out

In the vein of his sleeper hit MID-AUGUST LUNCH, director Di Gregorio crafts yet another entertaining and poetic comedy pulsing with life. Three Italians in their seventies, all dealing with their own problems, suddenly decide to quit their beloved Rome to settle abroad. But where? This is the first question of one too many. The Professor, retired after teaching Latin his whole life, is getting bored. Giorgetto, one of the last true Romans, struggles to make ends meet every month. Attilio, an antiques dealer and hippie, wants to once again experience the delights of his youthful travels. Things will change, but not quite as expected. In Italian with English subtitles.
