Love Blooms Between Elderly Gay Men in 'Who Will Save the Roses?'

This film offers a look at love later in life. 

The Italian Golden Globe-nominated film Who Will Save the Roses? tells the story of Giulio Santelia (Carlo Delle Piane), who has left his career as a lawyer to devote himself to poker and his lover, Claudio (Lando Buzzanca). When Claudio falls ill, Giulio expresses his devotion by bringing a rose to his bedside each morning. This clip shows the morning ritual and the timeless tenderness between the two men. Piane says "it has been the most emotional and mature role" of his whole career.
