A middle-aged, overweight night club singer with an eye for attractive divorcées falls for an enigmatic, statuesque young blonde, and precedes to pursue her, using her role of estate agent as an excuse to get close to her, in Giannoli’s well acted and generally diverting if never entirely convincing bitter-sweet (almost) romance.
