The Trip to Italy

Poster for The Trip to Italy

Brilliant British comedians Steve Coogan (Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa) and Rob Brydon (TV's Gavin and Stacey) are reunited on another culinary odyssey, following 2010's The Trip. This time the pair, again playing semi-fictionalised versions of themselves, will bicker and brood their way from Rome to the Amalfi coast. Warning: contains Michael Caine impressions. More

"Winterbottom's largely improvised 2010 film took Coogan and Brydon on a restaurant tour around northern England. In this incisive follow-up, Winterbottom reunites the pair - 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." (Sundance Film Festival)

Like the original, The Trip to Italy is also released - in an extended version - as a TV miniseries.

A few years after Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon played themselves touring North England to review restaurants (and more importantly, make fun of each other in between dodgy impressions), the two are back. This time in Italy, and with a new focus on midlife crises, mortality, Italian cinema, and Alanis Morrisette.

Even when it’s just ambling about, The Trip to Italy casts a warm, enveloping spell.

The improvised script gets around to deeper anxieties of aging and avoidance.

Their improvisation has been honed to the point where the jokes land solidly without losing naturalism.

Less tart than anticipated – comfort food, not challenging fodder.

As funny as the first go-round, more beautiful to look at, and better conceived.
