With a cast absolutely rammed full of Italian gorgeousness, Vittorio Gassman and Jean-Louis Trintignant lead the charge in what can certainly be considered one of Italy's very best lighthearted buddy movies.
The confidently gregarious Bruno and the shy and reserved Roberto meet in unremarkable circumstances and then set out on what becomes a road trip for the ages. This has everything:
🟢⚪🔴 Cars (man, that Lancia Aurelia is stunning!)
🟢⚪🔴 An amazingly catchy car horn
🟢⚪🔴 A memorable ending
...and is all set against a stunning Italian backdrop.
"You know what the best age is? I'll tell you. The age you are, day by day. Until you croak, of course."
- Bruno Cortona
Great fun. Right now I cannot think of a single way in which this tasty Italian dish could be improved.
