The Great Beauty

April 12, 2014

The Great Beauty (2013) – a movie about Rome, decadence, regrets. Superb performance, cinematography and music. A movie in which there is no real  ‘story’ but rather a series of episodes in the life of Jeb (in his own words: ‘not a misogynist, but a misanthrope’) after his 65th  birthday with many themes and threads woven through it.

The changes between scenes in a Roman setting are abrupt, leaving the viewer to fill the gaps.  A movie in which the music tells a lot while the characters are silent. Incredible shots of Rome. La grande bellezza.
