A Five Star Life (2013)

A Five Star Life (2013)
Directed by: Maria Sole Tognazzi
Screenplay by: Ivan Cotroneo
Francesca Marciano
Maria Sole Tognazzi
-Drama, Travel

Margherita Buy as Irene Lorenzi
Stefano Accorsi as Andrea

My rating: 4.5

Per imdb:
Forty-something Irene had a dream job that made her life easy: she was indeed a luxury hotel inspector and her work got carried out in a wonderful ever-renewed setting, from Paris to Gstaad to Berlin to Morocco to China... But does a dream job necessarily mean a dream life?

This is your journey. The path is up to you.


My two-bits:

Definitely a good one to watch to get an idea of what is involved it how five star luxury hotels are rated.

Within the travels between places, the main character ponders loneliness and love.

Especially loved this film because is had lots of scenes from these places:

Paris, France
Gstaad, Switzerland
San Casciano dei borghi, Italy
Borgo Egnazia, Italy
Marrakech, Morocco
Berlin, Germany
Shanghai, China
