Among the most influential films of the postwar era, Roberto Rossellini’s Journey to Italy (Viaggio in Italia) charts the declining marriage of Alex and Katherine Joyce (Ingrid Bergman and George Sanders), an English couple travelling through the Italian countryside to sell an inherited villa near Naples. More than just the anatomy of a relationship, Rossellini’s masterpiece is a heartrending work of emotion and spirituality. Poetically bridging internal and external worlds, Rossellini maps the contours of Alex and Katherine’s faltering relationship onto the ancient topography of the Neopolitan landscape, creating symbolic links that reverberate across time and space. Considered a predecessor to the existentialist cinema of Michelangelo Antonioni and hailed as a groundbreaking modernist work by the legendary film journal Cahiers du cinéma, Journey to Italy is a breathtaking cinematic benchmark.
