Journey to Italy

Journey to Italy has been hailed as one of the finest films ever made and is recognised as one of Rossellini’s most masterful works, though it was rather harshly treated on its initial release. The final film in a trilogy that began with Stromboli (1949) and Europa 51(1952), it is a deceptively simple portrait of a marriage in crisis. Ingrid Bergman and George Sanders are a quiet English couple who travel to Naples seeking a buyer for a property that has been left to them by a relative. Separated from the social whirl and hectic days of their life in London, they are forced to confront a relationship that has crumbled into weariness, mistrust and mutual disdain. Juxtaposing the emotional reserve of the unhappy couple with the beauty and vitality of their Italian surroundings, Journey to Italy is a film with little plot but a profound understanding of the human condition. The world-weary, self-loathing at the heart of George Sanders' screen character has never been better used, and Ingrid Bergman is exceptional at conveying the emotional turmoil beneath her civilised veneer

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
