The Salt of Life

House husband Gianni has many things to worry about while his retirement slips by doing boring chores for his wife, mother, daughter and pretty neighbour. But romance is not one of them. One day his old friend Alfonso, inspired by his own surprising sexual escapades, decides it`s time for Gianni to get a girlfriend and reacquaint himself with some of life`s pleasures.


"The movie's sensuous appreciation of ripeness and abundance extends to food, clothing and foliage; the lushness of a city in bloom virtually bursts from the screen." - Stephen Holden, New York Times
