The Salt of Life (Gianni e le donne)
(No longer in theaters)
Mar 2, 2012
A comfortably aging Italian man tries to come to terms with the end of his sexual appeal and his utter uselessness as anything other than a convenient husband and father. A gently observed and well-acted tale that sets up a tough, fascinating situation, but real questions of mortality, happiness, and identity are left mostly unexplored.
