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.
The Criterion Edition hit another home run with this edition, lovely digital transfer, great extras and a booklet like only they can print.
If you get a chance, the original screenplay is also worth a read, with several deleted scenes from the final cut, and descriptions that further explain Jep's and others' backgrounds and motivations.
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.
you regret, when just having fun with friends who in turn have their own lives to live, that you
think will never end, an then it hits you, some people don’t seem to stop an think just like that commercial
I’m falling an I can’t get up doesn’t resonate with them, this is one masterpiece of realization of a man who
just turn 65, an the shock of his past come to life, all the parties he has endure in the past an then it hits him,
what have I got, this movie is so beautifully filmed that you will have to watch it twice, like one reviewer said,
because you look at the scenery of Rome before you look at the subtitles, an I caught myself doing that,
then I had to reverse it to get the words that I missed, but if anything get the Blu-Ray because if you were to get the
DVD. it would not be such a clear picture, some of these scenes are dark but I think that was intentional, because
of the night life that this man has endure in the past, maybe some people party in the day who knows what people do,
like I said this you have to see if only for your self preservation of life, I so agree with all others in their review,
but take you’re time an savor every moment, you never know when it’ll be your last, love this movie...

I have watched it several times, in theater when it came out, and on DVD. We follow Jep on an Odyssey through an extremely magical Rome (the quiet streets cleared of Rome's heavy... Read morePublished 6 months ago by rtk_shikibu
This movie is only good for me because it helps me appreciate my life by expressing how lonely people can get. Certainly, money can't buy you love, as the Beatles say! Read morePublished 6 months ago by Gilligan Joy
An entertaining film but it pales in comparison with 'La Dolce Vita' which covers the same topic.Published 23 months ago by tom raterman
This film is art in itself and also treats one to the world of the artsy rich and idle along with glimpses of Rome's great creative past.Published on Aug. 21 2014 by murrie redman
Jep is such a great character. Incredible scenes from Rome, colours were great too. Very clean and smooth.
