Italian Film Festival: “Il Sorpasso” (1962)
January 23 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The Colonial Italian American Organization presents Il Sorpasso (The Overtaking), in Italian with English subtitles.
The ultimate Italian road comedy, Il Sorpasso stars the unlikely pair of Vittorio Gassman and Jean-Louis Trintignant as, respectively, a waggish, freewheeling bachelor and the straitlaced law student he takes on a madcap trip from Rome to Tuscany. An unpredictable journey that careers from slapstick to tragedy, this film directed by Dino Risi, is a wildly entertaining commentary on the pleasures and consequences of the good life.
