  • Summary: Catherine and Alexander, wealthy and sophisticated, drive to Naples to sell a deceased uncle's villa. There's a coolness in their relationship and aspects of Naples add to the strain. She tours the museums of Naples and Pompeii; he idles on Capri, flirting with women but drawing back from adultery. With her, he's sarcastic; with him, she's critical. They talk of divorce. Will this foreign couple find insight and direction in Italy? Collapse

    Voyage to Italy is the kind of movie that makes those unhappily in love feel understood. And even if that’s not you (congratulations), it’s still possible to groove on Rossellini’s stranger-in-a-strange-land psychodrama.

    As befits a filmmaker who defined as well as challenged the definition of Italian neorealism, Voyage to Italy unfolds as a thorny narrative and a profoundly personal documentary.

    In its time, this film represented the arrival of something new, and even now it can feel like a bulletin from the future.

    Voyage to Italy is close to watching actual strangers suffer loneliness despite being together. It can leave an aching bruise, but only if you're paying attention.

    It may have been a good movie in 1954, but doesn't hold up to today's films or even films from the golden age. I am a huge classic film aficionado but this was extremely dissapointing, there is no chemistry between the main cast, the script is poor and it's not particularly interesting. Giving this 100 is an absolute insult to every film in the world many which have far more muscle than this one. It's not terrible, but it's not good either. If you want truly classic cinema check out Public enemy's, Gone with the wind, Gilda or anything with Audrey Hepburn. Expand
