Il sorpasso

Dino Risi Italy, 1962

dionysus67's rating of the film The Easy Life

Along with Pietrangeli's "I Knew Her Well" this could be the quintessential film about the pleasures of leading a life with no committments. With a towering performance by Gassman, the vital impetus of pure hedonism is perfectly supplemented by the cabriolet 'beauty' and some hilarious honking. Yet, there is something disarmingly charming about Bruno's 'insecure' confidence of a boundless play with life. Terrific!
