|Mid-August Lunch – Trailer
This international smash hit from the makers of Gomorrah is an utterly charming tale of good food, feisty ladies and unlikely friendships during a very Roman holiday. Broke, and armed with only a glass of wine and a wry sense of humor, middle—aged Gianni (director and screenwriter Gianni Di Gregorio) is forced to entertain his 93—year—old mother and three other lively mamas in their ancient apartment during Italy’s biggest summer holiday, Pranzo di Ferragosto. Winner of prizes at international festivals including Best First Film at Venice and the Satyajit Ray Award at London, plus the Golden Snail at the Academy of Food and Film in Bologna, Mid—August Lunch is both warmly vibrant family drama and delicately balanced comedy of manners.
Directed by: Gianni di Gregorio
