Movie Info

Three retirees decide to move away from Rome to find a better standard of living in a country where their meagre pensions will go that much further. Planning for the trip sees the trio trawl the pubs and restaurants of a sun saturated Rome and discover that even at an old age they can still learn one or two lessons about themselves and life. 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 with Citizens of the World, a warm and delightful reflection on life with characters you'll want to spend many more hours with long after the credits roll.

Rambling and conversational, 'Citizens of the World' is a gentle celebration of good company, good wine and good intentions.

Not a film to rock your world, but never less than extremely amiable.

June 11, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's a sweet, sad, slightly flimsy film with nice performances from the grey-haired gallants.

Foul-mouthed retirees light up this warm Italian dramedy.

July 9, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Actor-filmmaker Gianni Di Gregorio takes the same relaxed, doc-style approach as his 2008 gem Mid-August Lunch, keeping the tone light while this time touching meaningfully on the economic plight of retirees.
