The Salt Of Life
From the writer, director and star of 2009’s surprise summer hit, ‘Mid August Lunch’, comes ‘The Salt of Life’, another tale of a middle-aged man faced with a crisis. This time, Gianni feels the need to prove he is still able to enjoy romance and attract women. The result is a series of escapades that gently mock the Italian male psyche, offering the film’s lead yet another chance to display his disarming charm and talent for comedy.
★★★★ “This thoroughly delightful Italian comedy by screenwriter-turned-auteur Gianni Di Gregorio is a kind of romantic realist-fantasia with Fellini in its DNA, and a little of Woody Allen” - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
