There’s a coolness in their relationship and aspects of Naples add to the strain. She remembers a poet who loved her and died in the war; although she didn’t love him, the memory underscores romance’s absence from her life now. She tours the museums of Naples and Pompeii, immersing herself in the Neapolitan fascination with the dead and noticing how many women are pregnant; 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?
Plot: This deceptively simple tale of a bored English couple travelling to Italy to find a buyer for a house inherited from an uncle is transformed by Roberto Rossellini into a passionate story of cruelty and cynicism as their marriage disintegrates around them.

“Viaggio in Italia” is a unique experience, a beautiful work of art, and perhaps Rossellini’s masterpiece, though I equally cherish GERMANY YEAR ZERO and FLOWERS OF ST. FRANCIS. It can best be viewed on the big screen in order to fully grasp its mysterious beauties. But, alas, it is not for every taste. The film was a commercial disaster when it opened. But those perceptive “Cahiers du Cinema” critics – Godard, Rivette, Rohmer, Truffaut – justly hailed it as a modern masterpiece and placed in their list of ten best films of all time. Ingrid Bergman and George Sanders are nothing short of brilliant as the feuding British couple who travel to Naples to close their holiday home. Rossellini’s breathtaking documentary scenes in the Mediterranean background are perfectly melded with the fictional story of the couple and their state of mind. It all comes down to that final miraculous moment that no written words can describe. Subtle, mysterious and beautiful, “Viaggio” ranks with the finest works in cinema.
Searching for love in a marriage.
This movie is being an example of some simplistic but beautiful and effective film-making. It doesn’t follow a big story in which a big conflict suddenly arises or something needs to get solved or found but it’s simply a movie about a, somewhat elderly British(?) couple, on holiday in Italy, who suddenly start to realize that they have never really loved each other.
It’s a movie that works because of how well done and beautifully it all got done. It obviously helps that the movie is being set in Italy and features some of the famous landmarks, in and around Napels. The movie focus a lot on the culture and history, since the movie is seen through the eyes of our two main characters, that are tourists and new to the country. There is always something happening in the movie, even though it really doesn’t follow a that complicated or thick storyline. It’s a movie that prefers realism and is basically a random slice of life and about marriage, that of course is not always anything romantic or love filled. Suddenly they start to learn more about each other and about themselves, which makes them realize that they are perhaps not meant to be together. Doesn’t sound that interesting perhaps but the way the story gets told simply makes this a great one to watch, that also never bores. Granted that it’s also a quite short movie.
The movie also works well because the characters in it are being realistic and they interacting convincingly with each other. Both George Sanders and Ingrid Bergman gave some fine performances in this movie and were a convincing screen couple, who’s marriage has worn out.
It’s also a movie that benefits from the fact that it got done in black & white. For some reason I think this movie would had been way more cheesy had it been shot in full color. Instead now the movie has some real class and beauty to it as well.
Despite that it’s a movie set in Italy and also an Italian produced movie, with an Italian title, it’s still an mostly English spoken film. At least the two main characters speak Italian throughout. So those who normally won’t come near a ‘foreign’ film can also easily watch this one, if you pick up the right, original, version of it of course.
Simply one fine little, well done, effective movie, by Italian director Roberto Rossellini.
