Exclusive: The Salt Of Life Clip

He may be a little older than your average up-and-comer but Gianni Di Gregorio is steadily carving a niche for himself as one of the freshest voices in Italian cinema. His second directorial gig, The Salt Of Life, has been greeted with similarly rapturous acclaim as 2008's Mid-August Lunch, and, as this new clip illustrates, it's got the same whimsical tone and gentle humour.

If gentle humour isn't your bag - and we get that - the dude's versatile too, as his gutsy work on the Gomorrah screenplay testifies.

Don't expect too many motorbike-borne gunmen in this one. Di Gregorio plays Gianni, a man entering the autumn of his years, who takes a lawyer friend's (Alfonso Santagata) advice and decides to find himself a mistress. But flirting with the signorinas isn't as straightforward as Gianni imagined, even with a fluffy canine standing by with puppy eyes at the ready.

There's a poster to feast your eyes on too and Empire's review is standing by for your perusal needs.


The Salt Of Life
is out on August 12.
