      Ed Potton Times (UK) ... this tale of an English marriage imploding on a trip to Naples is a quiet riot of doubt and insecurity. Rated: 4/5 Feb 14, 2023 Full Review Richard Brody New Yorker One of the most quietly revolutionary works in the history of cinema, Roberto Rossellini's third feature starring Ingrid Bergman (his wife at the time), from 1953, turns romantic melodrama into intellectual adventure. Aug 31, 2015 Full Review Peter Keough Boston Globe You might not want to bring along someone you love, because you could end up leaving the theater alone. Rated: 3.5/4 Jun 20, 2013 Full Review Cory Woodroof For the Win (USA Today) Roberto Rossellini knew exactly how to end this movie, and it makes the whole journey getting to that ending all the more worthwhile. May 20, 2023 Full Review Éric Rohmer Cahiers du Cinéma The old relationship between the sign and the idea is shattered: in its place there emerges a new and disconcerting one. Such is the elevated and brand-new conception of realism that we discover here. Feb 1, 2021 Full Review Nicholas Bell IONCINEMA.com Journey To Italy is a delicately and delightfully crafted exploration of relationships, complacency, and the evocation of our connections to our anthropological roots.

      Lanfranco C The romantic Italian atmosphere resolves the relationship's problems in a wealthy English Couple Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/20/24 Full Review Audience Member Almost looks like a 50s picture postcard Neapolitan tourist advert. A black and white film that feels tinged with the warmth and colour of its location but the grim company of a fractious marriage. My problem with the film is singular but emphatic the acting of the protagonists is woeful and wildly unrealistic. How the wife could feel anything for the priggish obnoxious and crassly rude husband is beyond me. He needs a proper slapping. The turnaround in their relationship in the space of ten seconds is absurd. Rubbish film but beautiful location shots. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review joe m "Voyage to Italy" is the type of movie that's hard to describe. It's the story of an English couple (Ingrid Bergman and George Sanders) who come to Naples, Italy to sell her uncle's villa. It then is a slow burn of the troubles of their marriage and each one's isolation from the other. These are brought in to focus by being in the 'exotic' realm of southern Italy with its slow pace, different food, strange customs and a more spiritual, even pagan, life that accentuates their discontent. Very effective in that sense with good performance by both, yet especially by Bergman. Good or bad, it's the type of film that will stick in your mind long after being watched. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Really not quite sure what the appeal is here to be honest. I found the dialogue to be stunted, and the characters flat with unconvincing reactions to their predicaments. Perhaps this is seen as one of the first of its kind in terms of "personal" filmaking? Not sure, but there wasn't much here for me. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Great performances in this highly influencial film which combines classic melodrama with an intellectual touch. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review William L Grimly monotonous, this chronicle of a slowly dissolving relationship is uniquely character-driven instead of relying on plot, but is ultimately hindered by a stale and predictable ending - a holdover from the crow-pleasers if yesteryear before New Wave would see innovation through to the end. Some may certainly find it tedious despite the relatively short runtime, but much of the film's strengths (at least in the earlier scenes) rely on context to be fully enjoyed. (4/5) Rated 4 out of 5 stars 08/12/20 Full Review Read all reviews
