      The Salt of Life (Gianni e le donne)

      Director: Gianni Di Gregorio

      Italy | 2011 | 90 minutes

      Italian with English subtitles

      In his warm and witty follow-up to the 2010 sleeper hit Mid-August Lunch, writer-director-actor Gianni Di Gregorio has created another sparkling comedy – this time with a dash of the bittersweet. In The Salt of Life, Gianni plays a middle-aged retiree who has become invisible to all distaff Romans, regardless of age or relation. He contends with an aristocratic, spendthrift mother (again played by Lunch's great nonagenarian Valeria de Franciscis); a wife who is more patronizing friend than romantic partner; a daughter (played by Di Gregorio's daughter Teresa) with a slacker boyfriend whom Gianni unwillingly befriends; and a wild young neighbor who sees him merely as her dog walker. Watching his "codger" friends snare beautiful younger women on the sun-kissed cobblestones of Trastevere, Gianni tries his polite, utterly gracious best to generate some kind of extracurricular love life – with both hilarious and poignant results. Admission: $6 mem/$8 non-mem/Free for VIP Film Pass holders. Call 901.544.6208 or visit brooksmuseum.org/films for more information or to purchase tickets.
