synopsis

The Trip to Italy is a semi-fictional improvised tour of Italy from director Michael Winterbottom (24 Hour Party People, The Trip) starring two of Britain’s best-loved comic actors, Steve Coogan (Philomena) and Rob Brydon (Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story). In the long awaited follow-up to the smash hit comedy The Trip, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon embark on a new culinary road trip around Italy in the summer, where they enjoy mouth watering meals in the gorgeous surroundings of Liguria, Tuscany, Rome, Amalfi and Capri. They riff on subjects as varied as Batman’s vocal register, Pompeii, the artistic merits of “Jagged Little Pill”, and, of course, compete on who can do the best Michael Caine impersonation.
