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

Wonderful, warm film
30 November 2004 | by devin-alfordSee all my reviews

This is one of my all-time favorite films. Julie Harris and Tchéky Karyo really do a great job. Their interaction is fascinating and wonderful. I've enjoyed Mr. Karyo in many films, but this was my first Julie Harris film. Ms. Harris is wonderful to watch - what a terrific actor! There are a several very wonderful scenes. Even though I don't often go for "chick flick" type movies, this one really warmed my heart. The story was very interesting, and I really enjoyed the ending. I highly recommend this film to everyone. The beautiful scenes alone are worth watching. Aloha, Devin
