“The Great Beauty” creates an atmosphere of excess within an Italian fantasy world. The film takes the audience on a journey to find the attainment of a meaningful beauty amongst excess and riches. A fantastic film. The best I have seen in years!


The Great Beauty is a 2013 Italian film co-written and directed by Paolo Sorrentino, packaged on DVD.

You haven't seen Rome until you've seen The Great Beauty. One of the most spectacular and internationally heralded films of the year, Paolo Sorrentino's A­cademy Award winner is a powerful and evocative tale of hedonism and lost love, and an extraordinary depiction of contemporary Rome.

65-year-old Jep Gambardella (the phenomenal Toni Servillo) is a jaded journalist and wealthy bon vivant whose early promise as a novelist has never been fulfilled, though his infamy remains. He lives in a luxurious apartment overlooking the Colosseum and is a regular of Rome's party circuit for the elite, a never-ending nocturnal parade of decadence that rages through antique palaces, immense villas and opulent terraces around the Eternal City. His worldview begins to shift after a man arrives on his doorstep and informs him of the death of his first love. Both troubled and moved by the revelation, Jep is flooded with memories of the past and ponders the promise of what may remain…

The Great Beauty Movie Reviews

“A shimmering coup de cinema to make your heart burst, your mind swim and your soul roar.” The Telegraph

“Exhilarating. Delirious. An Aperol spritz of Roman fantasia.” Jonathan Romney, The Independent

“The film equivalent of a magnificent banquet composed of 78 sweet courses. This movie looks and feels superb, it is pure couture cinema. A brilliantly executed, glitteringly hypnotic film” The Guardian

“Lurid, acerbic, seductive and magnificent. Sorrentino has mastered the delicate balancing act between scabrous comedy and honest human pathos. This is an experience to cherish.” The Australian
