Il sorpasso tells the story of a shy law student that meets a capricious man who takes him for a drive through the Roman and Tuscany countries in the summer. Directed by Dino Risi, this dramedy focuses on the relationship of two characters who are completely different from each other. However, the chemistry between them really worked because they balanced each other out. Through the whole film you see the idea of summer being played out; road trips, great food and lots of adventures. But, life’s not all fun and games. Il Sorpasso ends with a cruel reality check that definitely is gonna shake the audience.
