Three retired best friends conspire to move away from Rome to find a better standard of living in a country where their meager pensions will stretch much further.
“Undeniably heartwarming. It’s a gentle celebration of good company, good wine and good intentions” – Dave Calhoun, Time Out
As they formulate an escape plan, the trio steep in their familiar haunts, reconvene with family and say goodbye to their rapidly changing community — all while basking beneath the warmth of the Roman sun. As their departure date approaches, each man must reassess the value of life’s simple pleasures and the reliable comforts of a modest life at home in Rome. They may also discover that even at an old age they can still learn a lesson or two about themselves and about life. With the warm and delightful Citizens of the World, director Gianni Di Gregorio, Italy’s laconic answer to Larry David, returns to the humanist comic territory of his arthouse hits Mid-August Lunch and The Salt of Life. (Dir. by Gianni Di Gregorio, 2019, Italy, in Italian with English subtitles, 91 mins., Not Rated)
