The Salt of Life (Italian: Gianni e le donne) is the second film from writer/director/actor Gianni Di Gregorio, who began his directorial career with 2010's Mid-August Lunch.[1]


Gianni (Gianni Di Gregorio) is 60 and might as well be invisible (except when it's helpful). Smothered by his mother (Valeria De Franciscis), ignored by his wife (Elisabetta Piccolomini), and befriended (against his will) by his daughter's layabout boyfriend, he finds retirement to be not quite what he'd hoped for. He sets out to find himself a love life, to comic and charming effect.
