Italian Film Festival Napier - Journey to Italy

15 Hardinge Rd, Ahuriri, Napier

Among the most influential films of the postwar era, Journey to Italy charts the declining marriage of a couple from England (Ingrid Bergman and George Sanders) on a trip in the countryside near Naples. Hailed as a groundbreaking modernist work by the legendary film journal “Cahiers du cinéma,” Rossellini’s masterpiece is a heartrending work of emotion and spirituality.

One of the most quietly revolutionary works in the history of cinema […] turns romantic melodrama into intellectual adventure.

The New Yorker

It has come to be regarded as a masterpiece, one of the key works of modern cinema.
