Considered by many to be one of the greatest films ever made, Rossellini’s JOURNEY… marks a transition from the Italian director’s gritty neorealist documentaries of the 1940s to his complex psychological portraits of the 1950s.
The story of a wealthy British couple’s (George Sanders and Ingrid Bergman) trip to Naples, the film’s experimental techniques and unconventional plot line inspired generations of filmmakers, especially the French New Wave. A testament to Rossellini’s capacity for deep moral insight and innovative direction, it captures the magical—and often unsettling—pull that Italy has held over tourists and travelers for centuries. Now available in a restored digital version, Journey to Italy brings us back to the glory days of European avant-garde cinema while providing a timeless look into human relations, especially those bound by love.
