The recently retired Gianni has many things to worry about, but romance is not one of them. At least not until his friend Alfonso decides to reacquaint him with the “salt of life”. But poor Gianni is like an old, rusty car: the engine might still be rolling, but more is needed to get him back on the road… Director-actor Gianni Di Gregorio convincingly plays the lead in this autobiographically tinted, bittersweet, sparkling comedy. Italian spoken.

The year 1968 left a permanent mark on over half a million Yugoslavians, among them Maribor-based Metka Autor, a Metalna worker, who left for Germany at 28 in hope of a better tomorrow. In the film, she reminisces about the experience of Maribor immigrant workers while preparing dishes. Newsreel 80 records the day-to-day life of this 81-year-old, who generously and welcomingly understands the hardships of contemporary migrants.
