This charmer follows Gianni, a 60-something Roman who lives with his tyrannical 93-year-old mother, Valeria, and suddenly finds himself forced to look after three other elderly ladies. As the late summer holiday of Ferragosto approaches, Gianni (director di Gregorio) is blackmailed by his building manager Luigi into looking after Luigi's mother for two nights in exchange for forgiving certain tenant debts. But when Luigi comes to the apartment, he's brought not only his mother Marina, but his aunt Maria as well. Soon after, Gianni's doctor-friend Marcello pays a call, asking if he can leave his mother, Grazia for just one night. The aging women, each with her own strong personality, prove a handful while grudging host Gianni attempts to monitor their pill intake and pacify them with food. Debuting director di Gregorio's combination of artistry and humanity avoids platitudes and exaggeration as he spins this warm-hearted, humorous tale. © Pinnacle Films 2012 (Original Title: Mid August Lunch)
