Citizens of the World
Director: Gianni de Gregorio Run Time: 90 min. Rating: Not Rated Language: Italian
In the vein of his sleeper hit Mid-August Lunch, this melancholic yet entertaining and poetic Italian comedy is pulsating with life.
It is never too late to change your life. Three Italians in their seventies, all dealing with their own problems, decide all of a sudden to quit their beloved Rome to settle abroad. But where? This is the first question of one too many. The Professor, retired after teaching Latin his whole life, is getting bored. Giorgetto, one of the last true Romans, struggles to make ends meet every month. Attilio, antique dealer and hippie, wants to experience again the emotions of his youth travels. Things will change, but not quite as expected.
“Rambling and conversational, ‘Citizens of the World’ is a gentle celebration of good company, good wine and good intentions.” ~ Dave Calhoun, Time Out
“Not a film to rock your world, but never less than extremely amiable.” David Jenkins, Little White Lies
