    Il Sorpasso

    ★★★★

    Dino Risi’s character study in this film and idiosyncratic relationship between two unlikely friends with distinct personalities is one significant piece of its period and to us, especially on the technical aspect and its screenplay.

    While overlooking its façade, this simple road comedic adventure is also an insightful implication towards human beings in terms of their dissimilarities as individuals, that is already well-renowned yet perfectly executed by Risi.
