Il Sorpasso

This is part of Swinging Roman Cinema

Playing as part of our "Swinging Roman Cinema" series, hosted by Shawn Levy, author of Dolce Vita Confidential.

Il Sorpasso (1962): In Dino Risi's breezy, acidic road comedy, a playboy (Vittorio Gassman) and a scholar (Jean-Louis Trintignant) become unlikely travel buddies, traversing the heights of Italy's wondrous heyday but always skirting close to the edge of the illusion and tumbling into the abyss. A comic lark...until the lights go out.
