The Trip to Italy is a semi-fictional improvised tour of Italy from director Michael Winterbottom (A Mighty Heart, 24hr Party People, Jude) starring two of Britain’s best-loved comic actors, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon. The Trip to Italy is the follow up to The Trip (2010), the critically acclaimed BBC series and film.
Rob has been commissioned by a newspaper to go on a driving tour of Italy from Liguria to Capri, partly following in the footsteps of the great Romantic poets. He asks his old friend Steve to go with him. As they journey through the beautiful Italian countryside they talk about life, relationships and their careers whilst stopping at wonderful restaurants and hotels along the way.
“As funny as the first go-round, more beautiful to look at, and better conceived, it should mark a high point in the prolific director’s box office career” – The Hollywood Reporter
