The Trip to Italy (2014)
Directed by: Michael Winterbottom
Screenplay by: Michael Winterbottom
-Comedy, Drama, Travel

Steve Coogan as Steve
Rob Brydon as Rob

My rating: 4.5

Per imdb:
Two men, six meals in six different places on a road trip around Italy. Liguria, Tuscany, Rome, Amalfi and ending in Capri.


My two-bits:

Loved the sites from where these two stopped for meals and lodging during their road trip along the western coast of Italy.

Food plays a big part in the film with scrumptious looking dishes of pasta get served to tantalize our eyes and the actors' bellies.

A little bit of bookish trivia is included as they visit places related to romantic poets Lord Byron and Percy Bysshe Shelley.

The road chit chat is amusing with pop references and impressions of movie celebrities.

Places viewed:
Amalfi Coast
San Fruttuoso
Villa Borghese
