About the Film
From acclaimed director Michael Winterbottom - the never before available full feature length film of The Trip to Italy. Beautiful scenery, exquisite gourmet cuisine and inspired, free-flowing improvised comedy from two of the finest comic actors around.
A unique and stellar amalgam of travelogue, food programme, comedy, history, drama and doc(mock?)umentary. This second six-part series (edited and presented as a feature film) is even better than the original series set in the north of England. The balance of humour and melancholy is absolutely perfect. There's nothing remotely like it, and for me nothing on television at the moment anywhere comes close to matching it.
The Trip to Italy
This is hardly a reflection of the three hour TV series (six half hour shows). So much is missing! Yes there are a few golden moments but so much of the TV series has been flushed away by some narrow minded editor with no foresight into what people might actually want to see, not what the editor wants to see! If you watched the TV seires you will be very dissapointed with this 1 hour and 40 mins very edited version, there are lumps missing - why? Don't bother! Certainly don't buy it, wait for it to become available as a rent. I will be looking for my money back, it's just not enough of what I expected.
