Journey with Papa
|Journey with Papa|
|Directed by||Alberto Sordi|
|Written by||Rodolfo Sonego|
|Music by||Piero Piccioni|
Armando does not spend much time with his shy son Cristiano, so he decides to go with him a beach holiday. This is the first occasion for years for the two to know each other: Cristiano is a naif, idealist boy, while Armando is an egocentric and hedonist mature businessman. During the trip the two meet various people, amongst which a wealthy friend and his wife, who betrays her husband with Armando. Cristiano accidentally discovers the relationship, generating an uproar and causing Armando to lose an important deal. They also visit Cristiano's mother and Armando's ex-wife, who lives with a writer and has caused decadence in the family. Armando then has a definitive rupture with his young lover, who leaves him because of his egoism, and has sex with Cristiano (ignorant of the girl's relationship with his father). Armando, having known of the encounter, at first seems to abruptly leave Cristiano on the road, but ultimately decides to go on with the trip.
