5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece April 23 2014
By ador
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had to watch this movie twice in one weekend because on the first view I was so overwhelmed by the visuals I couldn't divert my eyes long enough to focus on the subtitles and I gave in to the "The Great Beauty" of it. Stunning cinematography of Rome and its most coveted views, an incredible performance by the actor (Toni Servillo) who had me caring for Jeb and his plight...

The lighting in this movie is unmatched in my experience. The chiaroscuro makes you feel as if you stepped inside a Caravaggio canvass.

Not for everyone! For those that appreciate the arts this movie is a must see. The right audience will watch this movie for years to come.

This is a piece of art in every sense of the word.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rome, la magnifique. Sept. 15 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Un film qui mérite amplement tous les prix qu'il a obtenus. L'acteur principal, Toni Servillo, est magnifique. Son personnage (Gep) fait preuve d'une grande indulgence envers tout. Bien sûr le film évoque La Dolce Vita de Fellini, mais en plus doux, en plus ironique. La bande son ou musique du film est extraordinaire : que ce soit les extraits de musique religieuse ou pop music européenne.
Tout est merveilleux dans ce film : des party sans fin à la sainte de la toute fin en passant par les intellos prétentieux, l'Église prétentieuse et le mystère de la vie. Sans oublier le charme même de Rome, cette ville éternelle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great contemporary Italian cinema May 9 2014
By FilmFan2010 TOP 1000 REVIEWER
I watched 'Il Divo' by Paolo Sorrentino a while back, and was impressed. But 'The Great Beauty' is even a better film by this director, based on the DVD version that I saw.

There is much similarity between this film and the dated version, 'Roma' by Fellini. But visually this film is far superior, and deserves repeated viewing. To follow the dialogues by reading the subtitles is a demanding chore for me. Often I had to pause the film to know what was said. So a 2nd or 3rd viewing will be necessary for me to grasp all the philosophical discussions, some fairly relevant and entertaining, that took place. The protagonist played by Toni Servillo is top-notch, chain-smoking regardless.

In summary, this is a 'must' for all fans of Italian cinema.
