Il sorpasso

Dino Risi Italy, 1962

Pierluigi Puccini's rating of the film The Easy Life

Hysterical satire with wonderful dialogue and two excellent performances, Trintignant is a quiet and absent minded youngster, and Gassman is his mischievous, older but less mature counterpart, they meet one morning, take a country ride and enjoy the best weekend of their lives. Dino Risi's masterpiece.
