Mid-August Lunch

Gianni di Gregorio 2008, Italy, 75 mins.

For our first foreign-language film of the season we are delighted to show this low-budget one directed by the man who also stars in it. In a deal with his landlord, Gianni, who acts as his mother's carer, agrees to look after the landlord's mother as well rather than pay the rent he owes. Word gets around and soon Gianni has three or four oldies to entertain while their normal carers enjoy a short respite over the August bank holiday (or the Italian equivalent, literally translated in the title).
