Fun movie! Pranzo di Ferragosto

Gianni is a middle-aged man living in Rome with his imposing and demanding elderly mother. His only outlet from her and the increasing debt into which they are sinking, are the increasingly frequent quiet sessions at the local tavern. As an Oriental saying goes, 'Moments of crisis are moments of opportunities'. These appear during the celebration of the holiday of Ferragosto on 15 August. That's when everybody leaves town to have fun. Opportunity knocks on Gianni's door in the most unexpected way.

De vijftigjarige alleenstaande Giovanni woont bij zijn moeder in Rome. Het hemelvaarstweekend komt eraan en door toeval heeft hij de taak om verschillende oudere dames te entertainen en een goed verzorgde lunch voor ze te organiseren.
