Citizens of the World
Distrib Films US • 1h 31m
Directed by Gianni de Gregorio • Drama • With Ennio Fantastichini, Giorgio Colangeli, Gianni Di Gregorio • 2019 • 92 minutes
Three retirees decide to move away from Rome to find a better standard of living in a country where their meager pensions will go that much further. Planning for the trip sees the trio trawl the pubs and restaurants of a sun saturated Rome and discover that even at an old age they can still learn one or two lessons about themselves and life. Gianni Di Gregorio, Italy’s laconic answer to Larry David, returns to the humanist comic territory of arthouse hits Mid-August Lunch and The Salt of Life with Citizens of the World, a warm and delightful reflection on life with characters you’ll want to spend many more hours with long after the credits roll.
