A sequel to one my favorite films, 2010's THE TRIP, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon reunite for a new culinary road trip, THE TRIP TO ITALY, retracing the steps of the Romantic poets’ grand tour of Italy and indulging in some sparkling banter and impersonation-offs. Rewhetting our palates from the earlier film, the characters enjoy mouthwatering meals in gorgeous settings from Liguria to Capri while riffing on subjects as varied as Batman’s vocal register, the artistic merits of “Jagged Little Pill,” and, of course, the virtue of sequels.
Director: Michael Winterbottom
Starring: Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon, Claire Keelan, Marta Barrio and Rosie Fellner
What the critics are saying:
Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes
By the time the curtains draw to a bittersweet close, you’ll walk out feeling rejuvenated, satisfied, well replenished in humor and culture, and already planning your own trip to Italy.
Los Angeles Times
Brydon and Coogan's discourse over breakfast, lunch and dinner is captured with a casualness that makes the eavesdropping delicious.
The Hollywood Reporter
As funny as the first go-round, more beautiful to look at, and better conceived.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
He’s like a globe-trotting Richard Linklater. And with Winterbottom’s first-ever sequel, his “Trip” films now rival Linklater’s “Before” series in charting how a twosome evolves over time. Plus, they’re bloody hilarious.
If you go in for allusive British humor that builds slowly from dry to uproarious, as executed by two absolute masters of the form, The Trip To Italy will work for you, I believe. I also think the film, directed, like the prior one, by the astute Michael Winterbottom, is a somewhat smoother trip than the first.
