Journey to Italy

Viaggio in Italia

An unhappily married couple attempts to find direction and insight while vacationing in Naples.

Sharing a passionless existence together, married English couple Alexander (George Sanders) and Katherine Joyce (Ingrid Bergman) travel to Naples after inheriting a villa. On the verge of divorce, with neither one's disposition warming to the other, they decide to spend the rest of the trip separately. Katherine visits museums and historical sites, whereas Alexander goes to Capri to unwind with drinks. However, during the course of their vacation, the Joyces both undergo changes. Ridiculed when it first appeared in 1953, but correctly acclaimed as masterwork a few years later by the Cahiers du Cinéma critics - who became the French New Wave. This film marks the point where neo-realism begins to be rejected and anticipates the modernism of Antonioni's ‘L'Avventura’. (Some subtitles)
