The Independent Culture

Mid-August Lunch is a charmingly mellow little Italian comedy about a middle-aged bachelor (director Gianni Di Gregorio) who shares a cramped flat in Rome with his mother, and is persuaded to have three other old women to stay with them over the August bank holiday. Devoid of any crises more earth-shattering than the fishmonger's being closed, it slips down as easily as any of the hero's many glasses of white wine.
