La Grande Bellezza
"The Great Beauty" in italian "La Grande Bellezza" is an italian-french drama film, directed by Paolo Sorrentino in 2013. This film won an Oscar and at Cannes Film Festival in the same year. The leading role in film played Toni Servillo as Jep Gambardella. "The Great Beauty" presents a story about man, who has 65 years old, is an unsatisfied artist, journalist and lives in Rome. Jep spends a lot of time on big, noisy parties and passing affairs. His life is full of pleasure, although empty, superficial without values. When he finds out the death of woman, who loved years ago, his life changes dramatically, this causes that he start thinking about his past life. In this film is presented a gorgeous image of Rome and many other image of the beauty until the luxurious life, creating even the impression of dream and surrealistic dimension. In my view, this film is too long, because is three hours long... But it's important to be prepared for watching a film of this specific type.
I recommend you to watch this beautiful film! ;-)
