Three retired best friends conspire to leave behind prosaic daily rituals and aspire to find a better standard of living in a country where their meager pensions will stretch much further. 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 the pages fly off the calendar towards the departure date, each man must reassess the value of life’s simple pleasures and the reliable comforts of a modest life at home in Rome. With CITIZENS OF THE WORLD, Gianni Di Gregorio, Italy’s laconic answer to Larry David, returns to the humanist comic territory of arthouse hits MID-AUGUST LUNCH and THE SALT OF LIFE.
“This likeable, light-as-a-feather Italian comedy will top up your reserves of bonhomie… Undeniably heartwarming. It’s a gentle celebration of good company, good wine and good intentions.” —Dave Calhoun, Time Out “As alive to Rome's beauty as the men are unappreciative of it — it's a film of glorious, largely unremarked upon vistas, from cobbled streets to the Colosseum, surrounding lakes and rural hideaways.” —Emma Simmonds, The List “…A story about deep-felt connection. To friends, to our feelings, and, with a backdrop of the picturesque Italian capital (in something of a love letter to the filmmaker’s native city), to a sense of place… Advocates the notion of home being where the heart is.” —George Nash, Flickering Myth
