The Voyage (Italian: Il viaggio, and also released as The Journey) is a 1974 Italian drama film directed by Vittorio De Sica. It was De Sica's final film.[1]


Adriana De Mauro (Sophia Loren) loves Cesar Braggi (Richard Burton), but Cesar, honoring his father's dying wish, allows his brother, Antonio (Ian Bannen), to marry Adriana. As fate wills, Antonio dies in an automobile accident. Adriana's mourning for Antonio ends when Cesar steps in to rekindle her lust of life. Soon, Adriana begins having dizzy spells. Cesar helps her to a specialist, and the diagnosis is not good. She has an incurable disease. For the rest of their time together, Cesar woos Adriana and eventually proposes to her on a gondola. Yet, Signora De Mauro (Barbara Pilavin), Adriana's mother, is not pleased with the relationship and argues bitterly with Cesar and stands in the way.
