Gianni is sixty. He is retired but has not become lazy for all that. In fact he is a helpful fellow who gives a hand to all those who need one: shopping for his wife, walking the pretty neighbor's dog, and so on. Everybody likes Gianni, but is it for the right reasons? Doesn't his wife profit by the situation (she still works so it is only logical that Gianni do all the chores)? Isn't he subject to the excruciating whims of his rich mother?... Sure, everybody LIKES Gianni, but who LOVES him? Agreed, being kind to them, he is the ladies pet, but he does not attract them anymore. That is why, when his macho lawyer friend Alfonso blames him for not having young mistresses "like every other senior Italian male", Gianni, who is beginning to ask himself questions about what it is like to become old, starts chasing dames.
Gianni is a retiree who has become invisible to most everyone around him. In response, he tries his best to generate some kind of extracurricular love life. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

La voici qui se retrouve avec plein de temps pour ruminer sa vie et se rendre compte du dsert sentimental qui l'habite. Alors qu'elle semble tre parvenue un accord sur sa relation avec son petit ami Matty, joueur de baseball coureur de jupons, elle rencontre George, un gentil businessman en pleine galre amoureuse et professionnelle. How do you know when you're in love ? "When you wear a condom with all the other girls". C'est avec cette conversation combien romantique que Matty (Owen Wilson) nous dvoile son ct amoureux alors que son quotidien se rsume profiter au maximum, tout en lgance, de chaque demoiselle qui voudra bien l'accompagner sous ses draps. Son personnage est attachant malgr sa goujaterie refoule, et son envie de bien faire est relle : quand il a une garde-robe remplie de vtements fminins de diverses tailles pour ne pas laisser repartir sa dernire conqute dans la mme tenue que la veille, il fait cela avec de bonnes intentions. Lisa (Reese Witherspoon) est une jeune fille ptillante et dynamique, perdue depuis qu'elle a t sortie de son quipe de softball. Mme si la vie avec Matty n'est pas ce qu'elle imaginait comme vie de couple, elle prend les choses plutt bien et avec philosophie, prte avancer pour construire quelque chose. George (Paul Rudd - dlicieusement dcal comme souvent) est un homme gentil, trop gentil et honnte, qui se prend un contrle financier qui risque de l'amener en prison parce qu'il faisait confiance au patron, son pre (parfait Nicholson), en signant ce qu'on lui donnait sans jamais vrifier sa lgalit. Sa secrtaire Annie (Kathryn Hahn, adorable), enceinte jusqu'aux yeux et lui tant totalement dvoue, va tenter de l'aider du mieux qu'elle peut. Chaque personnage est paum son faon et traverse une priode difficile tout en restant eux-mmes et sans cder au fatalisme.Ces personnages font toute la richesse du film. Qu'est-ce qui bloque alors ? Malheureusement l'histoire entre Lisa et George. Comme eux, on ne sait pas trop o a va les mener, et on ne comprend pas ce qui peut attirer Lisa chez ce type un peu bizarre quand mme (avec toutefois des scnes bien drles, comme celle du bus). L'alchimie entre eux n'est pas l. On regarder donc ce film pour profiter des protagonistes, mais on oublie la fin romantique.
Artem G (us) wrote: I have found this film in the "gun fu" category on the Wikipedia, but there's next to no "gun fu" there, it's just a usual action film with fights, not at all related to a skillfull use of "gun fu". The fights are good. What is really amasing about that film is the way the "evil" characters gloat, how they do dramatic silence, acting "cool". They discuss morals. It is a very sentimental film. The cops are equally blessed with integrity and raw emotions. The characters are (arche)typical and in retrospect seem very naive but I was moved.

The V (jp) wrote: A sort of funny movie about a slob who meets his equal who happens to be just as gross and obnoxious as he is. Unfortunately for his friends, this makes matters even worse since their goal was to get Barry married so that he would change his ways. Now they have to put with two Barry's and one of them has boobs!
Ola G (us) wrote: Mary Bee Cuddy (Hilary Swank) is a 31-year-old spinster from New York, a former teacher who journeyed to the Midwest for more opportunity. She is an active member of the small farming community Loup City, Nebraska Territory, and has significant financial prospects and sizable land ownership. She seems strong and independent, but suffers from depression and isolation after being rejected by several potential husbands for being unattractive and overbearing. She makes dinner for and sings to her neighbor Bob Giffen (Evan Jones), but when she proposes, he turns her down and leaves to find a wife back east. After a harsh winter, three women from the community begin to show signs of mental instability due to the hardships they have faced. Arabella Sours (Grace Gummer) has lost three children to diphtheria, Theoline Belknapp (Miranda Otto) is forced to kill her own child after a poor harvest puts her family at risk of starvation, and Gro Svendsen (Sonja Richter), a Danish immigrant, is shown to be in a mutually abusive relationship with her husband and suffers a breakdown after her mother dies. Reverend Dowd (John Lithgow) calls upon one of their husbands to escort the women eastward to a church in Hebron, Iowa that cares for the mentally ill. Unsatisfied with any of the men's potential, Mary Bee volunteers for the task alone, and Dowd reluctantly agrees. While preparing for her journey, Cuddy encounters George Briggs (Tommy Lee Jones), a claim jumper, who is about to be lynched for stealing Bob Giffen's land while he is away. Briggs begs Cuddy for help. Scared to make the trip alone, she frees him in return for his help escorting the women. He immediately casts doubt on the job and insists he is free to abandon her at any time. Cuddy tells him that $300 is waiting for him at their destination as a way of persuading him to remain with her as they make the journey...Hilary Swank carries this movie on her shoulders while Tommy Lee Jones handle the direction and supporting role with a steady grip. I reckon this sort of role is just right up the alley for Swank and I am pretty certain it was her they had in mind when they casted the parts. However, Tommy Lee Jones role Briggs is maybe a bit too familiar grounds for him, as the grumpy old outlaw is something we have seen him do too many times lately. He has nevertheless succeeded in giving the supporting ensemble some serious star sprinkles as we see John Lithgow, James Spader, Meryl Streep and the cute Hailee Steinfeld adding layers and weight to the picture with lasting impressions as a result. The narrative is slowpaced, but yet vivid. The imagery is somewhat disturbing, the storyline is not for everyone and the cinematography with the muted colors becomes a vital part of the movie in so many ways. And I love the plot twist. Betsy Sharkey with the Los Angeles Times wrote: "Swank and Jones, in particular, are a very good odd couple, playing saint and sinner, sometimes reversing the roles. What the directing side of Jones does best is to cede the spotlight to his star. He builds a strong platform for Swank to take on yet another woman who refuses to be bound by gender conventions". "The Homesman" is strong, moving, emotional and thoughtworthy.
