01, 02, 03, 04
Bruno Cortona and Roberto Mariani meet by chance as Roberto helps Bruno one day while everything is closed in Rome for the holiday weekend. The two men could not be more different. Thirty-six year old Bruno is extroverted, a man who seizes opportunities as they arise, is an excitement seeker, has never really grown up, but is a person to who many are drawn because of his exuberance and masculine good looks. Law student Roberto is introverted, controlled and so unsure of himself that he doesn't really know why he chose law as a career and is afraid not only to let the girl who lives across the way from him, Valeria, know that he likes her, but even to speak to her. He even has a photograph of her in his wallet that he took clandestinely. Roberto reluctantly gets caught up in the whirlwind of Bruno's last minute change in plans for the holidays as the two head off together in Bruno's Lancia Aurelia sports car, their joy ride which will be largely at Bruno's whim. That reluctance is ... (IMDB)
"Bruno and Il Sorpasso are full of wonderful surprises and hidden depths, and they continually slip away from any attempts to reduce them". "Risi proves to have a deft sense of managing the intertwined humor and drama of his incredibly complex characters". It's a sunny, lazy day in early-1960s Rome - the city is "like a graveyard," with everyone away on holiday."(Here)
"Il Sorpasso", il viaggio cinematografico, a tratti antropologico, di Dino Risi attraverso l'Italia del boom economico e del miraggio del benessere, l'Italia delle vacanze e delle soste agli autogrill, delle canzonette, dei clacson e delle auto come status symbol, dei risparmi per la macchina e per le ferie, l'Italia dei Bruno Cortona e dei Roberto Mariani. "Il Sorpasso" è uno dei film più affascinanti all'interno del panorama cinematografico italiano degli anni sessanta, ma non solo italiano, se pensiamo che, per stessa ammissione di Dennis Hopper, ispirò "Easy Rider" (il titolo americano del film di Risi è "The easy life"); e non solamente per quanto riguarda gli anni Sessanta se consideriamo le implicazioni profonde dei personaggi costruiti a trecentosessanta gradi, così come la pregevole struttura narrativa a episodi emblematici, di pezzi messi l'uno accanto all'altro, additiva. Si fa presto a raccontare la storia: Bruno Cortona (un magnifico Vittorio Gassman), quarantenne inaffidabile e mefistofelico, incontra Roberto Mariani (un perfetto Jean-Louis Trintignant), timido e introverso studente di giurisprudenza, in un giorno di ferragosto a Roma e lo trascina con sé in un viaggio (interiore) attraverso il quale Roberto risulterà profondamente mutato, fino alle estreme conseguenze.....(More)

A post Italian neo-realist film full of life and spontaneity. Every second of this film is refreshing and the characters take you along for the ride.

The ultimate Italian road comedy, Il sorpasso stars the unlikely pair of Vittorio Gassman and Jean-Louis Trintignant as, respectively, a waggish, freewheeling bachelor and the straitlaced law student he takes on a madcap trip from Rome to Tuscany. An unpredictable journey that careers from slapstick to tragedy, this film, directed by Dino Risi, is a wildly entertaining commentary on the pleasures and consequences of the good life. A holy grail of commedia all’italiana, Il sorpasso is so fresh and exciting that one can easily see why it has long been adored in Italy.(Here)

Ciccio and Franco flee Naples because they are wrongly accused of having murdered a local camorra boss and enlist in the Foreign Legion. They are inept but are mistaken for brave people by their commander and sent to break a weapon smuggling ring. (IMDB)
Accusati ingiustamente di un omicidio, due sbadati truffatorelli finiscono nella legione straniera, a marciare nel deserto fra sceicchi, harem e cammelli, per combinare ovviamente un mare di guai. (Here)
Franco e Ciccio, giunti dalla Sicilia a Napoli, vengono accusati di aver ucciso il boss della camorra e sono quindi costretti a fuggire ed arruolarsi nella Legione straniera. Poco tempo dopo il colonnello vede in loro gli unici due capaci di scoprire il traffico illecito di armi controllato dal ribelle Mustafà e la taverna della Nicchia. Sebbene siano totalmente imbranati, Franco e Ciccio riescono a scoprire la congiura.(WIKI)
Ciccio Fisichella et Franco Cocuzza sont venus de Sicile à Naples pour y chercher fortune ; mais c'est plut?t le mauvais sort qui les touche, car ils sont accusés d'avoir tué le chef de la camorra napolitaine (équivalent de la mafia à Naples). Une seule solution, s'enfuir et s'engager à la Légion... bien qu'ils n'y soient pas très aptes ! Heureusement un colonel a un projet pour eux : détecter un trafic d'armes entre la maison de Mustafà et la taverne de la Nicchia. C'est presque malgré eux que les deux légionnaires vont sauver la vie du pauvre Mustafà Bey qui était dupé par son cousin Sandrin1.(WIKI)

Note : le due canzoni sono state composte da Nino Paolo Tassone, arrangiate e dirette da Ennio Morricone, interpretate da Miranda Martino e con la partecipazione dei Cantori Moderni di Alessandroni. La bella vocalità della cantante è accompagnata nella prima canzone da un tempo moderato mentre in "Gianni" c'è un maggior dinamismo ritmico. Ci sono alcune contraddizioni a proposito di questo singolo. Cerco di elencarle: il logo Rca Italiana su entrambi i lati della copertina in contrasto con Rca Victor su i due lati dell’etichetta. L'indicazione per la canzone Gianni "dalla colonna sonora originale del film Il Sorpasso" nel retrocopertina mentre nell’etichetta è accreditata come colonna sonora originale del film Ombre Vive. L'unico indiscutibile punto è che non esistono altre copie se non con queste esatte caratteristiche. Andiamo per ordine: il film di Dino Risi è del 1962 mentre Ombre Vive uscì nelle sale cinematografiche Italiane alla fine dell'anno dopo. Risulta tuttavia probabile che questo film, su cui non si riesce ad avere notizie certe, fosse stato realizzato nel 1962 ma, vuoi per motivi di distribuzione o di censura, non venne proiettato. Il disco era già pronto senza però essere pubblicato per cause sconosciute. In Italia la Rca nel 1962/63 faceva uscire la sua produzione sotto due principali etichette: Rca Italiana per gli interpreti italiani di musica leggera e Rca Victor per i cantanti stranieri, per il jazz italiano e una parte delle colonne sonore. Queste due ultime categorie perché si riteneva che avessero come principale destinazione il mercato straniero. Con l’inserimento di Gianni nella colonna sonora del Sorpasso e il grande successo del film al botteghino, la casa discografica decise di mettere in vendita quel disco che era fermo nel magazzino. Bisognava però cambiare la grafica, ecco perché nel retrocopertina con la bella Spaak l’indicazione è giusta. Sarebbe poi stato troppo costoso ristampare il vinile. Inoltre trattandosi di una canzone inclusa in un film dal grande successo popolare la casa discografica scelse di pubblicarlo con l'etichetta Rca Italiana sulla copertina. Questo è quanto dovrebbe essere accaduto. Per inciso l’album fuori commercio della colonna sonora di Ombre Vive (Rca SP 8001) del 1963 contiene la canzone "Chi Ci Vedrà" ma non "Gianni" che appare così per la prima volta su questo raro singolo.

Notes : both songs were composed by Nino Paolo Tassone, arranged and conducted by Ennio Morricone, sung by Miranda Martino with the presence of I Cantori Moderni di Alessandroni. Sound accompaniment of Martino's beautiful vocals has a moderate development in the first song whireas in "Gianni" there is a greater rhythmic dynamism. You may notice some contradictions about this single. I try to list them: the Rca Italiana logotype on both sides of the cover in opposition to Rca Victor on the two sides of the label. The sentence with regard to Gianni "dalla colonna sonora originale del film Il Sorpasso" (from the original soundtrack of the film Il Sorpasso) on the back cover whereas on the label is credited as original soundtrack from the film Ombre Vive. The only indisputable point is the nonexistence of other copies if not in those exact characteristics. We go to order: the film by Dino Risi arrived in movie theaters on December 1962 while Ombre Vive was released only at the end of the year after. It is likely that this obscure film, on which it is difficult to have some definite information, had been shot ??in 1962 but, either for the distribution channels or censorship reasons was not showed in that year. The single was ready but unreleased for unknown reasons. Italian RCA records in 1962/63 had usually two different labels: Rca Italiana for Italian pop and rock singers and Rca Victor for the foreign artists, Italian jazz and sometimes the soundtracks. The latter two categories because they had as main destination the foreign market. With the inclusion of Gianni in the soundtrack of Il Sorpasso and film great success, Rca decided to issue the single already present in their warehouse. However it was necessary to change the art cover, that's why we find the correct sentence and the wonderful Spaak. It would be too expensive to re-print the vinyl. Being present a song in a movie with excellent results at the Italian box offices the record company chose to release the single with the label Rca Italiana on the cover. This is what should have happened. Incidentally the not commercial soundtrack album of Ombre Vive (RCA SP 8001) of 1963 includes the song "Chi Ci Vedrà" but not "Gianni" that appears so for the first time on this rare single.(Here or refer to the screenshot)

About the film: We cannot find any specific info up to now, maybe it has never been released. But we can be sure of its existence from its OST albums.
