Overview

Mid-August Lunch writer/director Gianni Di Gregorio returns to the themes of his award-winning feature directorial debut with this gently comical tale of a middle-aged retiree who longs for romance. Try as he might to be noticed by women, Gianni (Di Gregario) never seems to get a second glance. His condescending wife treats him more like a punch line than a husband, and his aristocratic mother seems all but blind to her son's romantic plight. Reluctantly striking up a friendship with the floundering boyfriend of his daughter (Teresa Di Gregorio), dejected Gianni looks on longingly as his aging pals court gorgeous young women, and he starts to question why all of the passion seems to have disappeared from his life. Later, the mild-mannered retiree decides to take a little advice from his lawyer friend, Alfonso (Alfonso Santagata), and starts to remember why chasing women is a young man's game.
