The Salt of Life
Gianni Di Gregorio follows his modest hit Mid-August Lunch. Again he is the retired, sleepy, basset-eyed Roman treated like a servant by his sweet, controlling mom (Valeria De Franciscis, 96). Italian slacker charm is real, but there is only enough pep here for a short, stretched out as a feature. The Viagra joke is good. 2012.
