What is virtual cinema?


The three girlfriends, all in the autumn of their lives and having troubles of their own, travel to southern Italy on a cooking class trip. Marie’s husband left her on Christmas Eve, Berling is the eternal single who denies her age and is living the sweet life, while Vanja lives in the memories of her late husband.

The journey doesn’t turn out at all as expected, and the warm southern nights offer flirtation, jealousy and inconvenient truths. Finally, however, the three women discover that they have far more to offer than they had ever dreamed and that it’s never too late.

REVIEW

“the director and her screenwriter…know how to flavour the whole film with a bittersweet and sincere look at old age, and in the end portray… a beautiful alternative of life.”
—Vittoria Scarpa, Cineuropa
