Storyline

Gianni is sixty. He is retired but has not become lazy for all that. In fact he is a helpful fellow who gives a hand to all those who need one: shopping for his wife, walking the pretty neighbor's dog, and so on. Everybody likes Gianni, but is it for the right reasons? Doesn't his wife profit by the situation (she still works so it is only logical that Gianni do all the chores)? Isn't he subject to the excruciating whims of his rich mother?... Sure, everybody LIKES Gianni, but who LOVES him? Agreed, being kind to them, he is the ladies pet, but he does not attract them anymore. That is why, when his macho lawyer friend Alfonso blames him for not having young mistresses "like every other senior Italian male", Gianni, who is beginning to ask himself questions about what it is like to become old, starts chasing dames...

Plights of daily living in trying to acquire mistress comedy-
12 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

I loved Mid August Lunch and like this movie even more. De Gregorio creates fun light "plights of daily living" comedies. They are entertaining fun and enjoyable.

In this movie Gregorio (who writes directs and is the protagonist in these movies) is having a mid life crisis...he has retired and thinks his life will become fuller if he takes on a mistress---he finds out unbelievably that a much older man who sits with his friends out on the street in front of his house has done this very thing. Of course he is thwarted in this quest and that is where the humor lies.

This is wonderful light amusing life situation comedy.

This movie is actually a little slicker and better filmed than Mid August Lunch the story a little more involved.

RECOMMEND HIGHLY
