Award-winning Italian existential drama directed by Paolo Sorrentino. Jep Gambardella (Toni Servillo) is an accomplished journalist who has made his name and reputation through his work and a largely successful novel he published as a young man. Presently a bachelor in his mid-60s, Jep spends much of his time around the upper bourgeoisie living in Rome and engages in a hedonistic and liberated life. But when he learns of the death of a former lover through her widowed husband, Jep is at once confronted with the fragility of life and the certainty of death, making him reconsider his present situation and careless existence. The film won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film and received the corresponding accolade at the Golden Globes and the BAFTAs.
