The zestful, careless Bruno Cortona (Gassman) meets law student Roberto Mariani (Trintignant) when the middle-aged jet-setter needs to use his phone. Cortona introduces the aspiring lawyer to the sybaritic life of luxury and voluptuousness, and Mariani is soon dazzled by the beautiful

young sylphs who inhabit it and the reckless gaiety of dancing and sailing along the Riviera. He loses all purpose and direction in life, and the older man, responsible on many levels for what ensues, belately realizes how shallow his life as a dissolute middle-aged playboy is. An absorbing

glimpse of decadence laced with touches of both warmth and sharp wit, THE EASY LIFE features particularly good acting from its two leads and is handsomely and appropriately filmed before a beautiful Riviera background.
