5.0 out of 5 stars Oscar material
Totally disagree with the previous review. thought the movie was incredibly engrossing and enjoyed every minute of the 2hr30min duration. For starters, it's a feast for the eyes. Rome itself and the way it is portrayed through the director's beautiful camera work would be enough of a spectacle even without the otherwise beautiful thought-provoking lines the film is...

1.0 out of 5 stars The Great Waste of Time
It was like a sequence of adverts for perfume separated by adverts for Rome as a holiday destination. I doubt even the French could make a film this pretentious. If any of the characters had dropped dead at any point you just wouldn't have cared a jot. Never a good sign.

2.0 out of 5 stars Pretentious and done before, 14 April 2014
This review is from: The Great Beauty [DVD] (DVD)
I was looking forward to this film, but was really disappointed. Pretentious from the beginning to the end. This film has been done before called "La Dolce Vita" by Federico Fellino and was a masterpiece then. The Great Beauty is a meagre copy of it. The only thing outstanding in this film is the soundtrack and the photography is beautiful. But I'm afraid if you haven't got a story to fill it, it's not enough.

This review is from: The Great Beauty [DVD] (DVD)
I was simply swallowed up by the exquisite beauty of this fabulous film. It was one of the most engrossing and intriguing film experiences I have every had - even better than Twilight (lol). It is thought-provoking, involving and moves along at such a languid pace it feels as if you are floating along Rome's Tiber as Jep's life unfolds around you. The soundtrack is sublime and I bought it almost before the credits had finished rolling. So often the emotions generated by today's films are shock, disgust, anguish and a sense of deja vu so this film is like a breath of fresh Italian air. It's glorious.

A poignant film that has everything. Life affirming, sad, funny with a marvellous soundtrack ranging from Europop to classical. Has become my favourite film.
