Elsa And Fred

Elsa y Fred is a 2005 Spanish-Argentine film co-production directed by Marcos Carnevale and starring Manuel Alexandre, China Zorrilla and Federico Luppi. Alfredo "Fred" is an old, recent widower who has led a quiet and repressed life and retires to an apartment in Madrid. Elsa is an old Argentine lady who happens to be his neighbor. As they fall in love, the two become absorbed with helping out each other in their old age: the dubious Elsa throws herself and Fred into situations the widower would have disapproved of earlier in life and makes him "live life and not death"; whereas Fred decides to grant Elsa's lifelong wish of going to Rome and performing an imitation of Fellini's famous scene starring Anita Ekberg and Marcello Mastroianni under the Fontana di Trevi in La dolce vita.
