Michael Winterbottom’s mainly improvised 2010 movie, The Trip, took comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon-or semifictionalized variations thereof-on a restaurant tour about northern England. In this witty and incisive comply with-up, Winterbottom reunites the pair for a new culinary road vacation, retracing the actions of the Romantic poets’ grand tour of Italy and indulging in some sparkling banter and impersonation-offs. Rewhetting our palates from the earlier movie, the figures delight in mouthwatering foods in magnificent settings from Liguria to Capri while riffing on subjects as various as Batman’s vocal sign-up, the inventive deserves of “Jagged Little Capsule,” and, of program, the advantage of sequels. Winterbottom trains his digicam to capture the idyllic Italian landscape and the gastronomic treasures currently being organized and consumed while maintaining the movie centered on the crackling chemistry amongst the two sales opportunities. The Trip to Italy easily melds the excellent comic interplay amongst Coogan and Brydon into quieter moments of self-reflection, letting audiences into their insightful ruminations on the nuances of friendship and the juggling of household and profession. The outcome is a biting portrait of modern-day masculinity. (c) IFC Films
