Buying Options

Slice of Italian life comedy, as a middle aged man has to look after four elderly women for a few days. Still living with his ninety year old mother Valeria ( Valeria De Franciscis), Gianni (Gianni Di Gregorio) has fallen behind on the rent to landlord Luigi (Alfonso Santagata). Eager to leave on holiday, Luigi suggests a deal - he will wipe the slate clean if Gianni can look after his mother Marina (Marina Cacciotti) for a few days.

Gianni reluctantly agrees, but is soon riled when Luigi arrives with his aunt Maria (Maria Cali) as well. Seeing an opportunity, his friend Marcello (Marcello Ottolenghi) soon gets in on the act, dropping off his mother Grazia (Grazia Cesarini Sforza) for a quick break. As Gianni struggles to cater to the needs of the elderly ladies, the diverging views of the four women quickly make his job at hand all the more difficult.
