While we often celebrate post-war Italy’s cinema—the neorealist films about the everyday malaise, the hustle, and the struggle of the common Italian by the likes of Visconti, Rossellini or De Sica—we tend to overlook the equally masterful comedies that emerged later. Italy’s prolific film industry was at an all-time high in the early 60s. Amidst these wonderful films, Il Sorpasso (The Easy Life) is a delightful example of a commedia all’italiana.

A high point of the genre during this period is undoubtedly Risi’s Il sorpasso(The Good Life, 1962). Featuring Gassman in one of his most accomplished performances and iconic roles, the film is a profoundly amusing but also disturbing portrayal of the euphoric cynicism generated by the economic “boom”.

Il sorpasso is one of the jewels in the crown of the genre (we use the term tentatively here) known as commedia all’italiana, which more often than not devoted itself to charting the vicissitudes of a culture experiencing rapid modernisation and the eventual disillusion that resulted… Il sorpasso is an ever-moving canvas of the ebb and flow of the life of a nation over two summer days on the road.
