Synopsis

In this Oscar-nominated comedy, journalist Jep Gambardella (Toni Servillo, Il divo and Gomorrah) charms and seduces his way through the lavish nightlife of Rome as a permanent fixture in the city's literary and social circles. However, when his sixty-fifth birthday coincides with a shock from the past, Jep finds himself unexpectedly taking stock of his life, turning his cutting wit on himself and his contemporaries, and looking past the extravagant nightclubs, parties, and cafés to find Rome in all its glory: a timeless landscape of absurd, exquisite beauty.
