Storyline

"Gentle into the Night" is the story of two lost souls: Martha, an American lady who has lived in Italy for many years without ever learning the language; and Renato, twenty five years younger than Martha, who for all his life has been working odd jobs and has no place to call home. Martha's home is a house in Tuscany she has inherited from her grandfather. There she lived and brought up her children after an early divorce. Martha, who at times suffers from a sudden loss of memory, and her obsession with the large country home, has become a nuisance to her children. They have send their mother to a care center, and are trying to sell the house. We meet Renato when he has just taken on a job for a small detective agency that specializes in divorce cases. He is observing two lovers traveling together through Northern Italy when he meets Martha who has run away from the care center... Written by Eugene Rizzo

One of my Favorite Movies
12 July 2002 | by (Oahu, Hawaii) – See all my reviews

This is one of my all time favorite movies. I really enjoy the relationship between Ms. Harris and Mr. Karyo in this movie, and really think Julie Harris did a terrific performance. The movie is corny, so if you you don't enjoy emotional, sweet movies, this one is not for you. Otherwise, I highly recommend the movie - Julie Harris' performance alone is worth it...
