Cinematique Presents "The Trip to Italy" http://whqr.org/post/cinematique-presents-trip-italy-1 <p>In this witty follow-up to the 2010 film <em>The Trip</em>, director Michael Winterbottom reunites comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon for a new culinary road trip. In this version, our heroes retrace the steps of the Romantic poets' grand tour of Italy, all while indulging in sparkling banter and various impersonation-offs. <em>The Trip to Italy </em>effortlessly melds the brilliant comic interplay of Coogan and Brydon&nbsp;into quieter moments of self-reflection, cooking up a biting portrait of modern day masculinity.
