The Great Beauty
Journalist Jep Gambardella (the dazzling Toni Servillo, Il divo and Gomorrah) has charmed and seduced his way through the lavish nightlife of Rome for decades. Since the legendary success of his one and only novel, he has been a permanent fixture in the city's literary and social circles, but when his sixty-fifth birthday coincides with a shock from the past, Jep finds himself unexpectedly taking stock of his life, turning his cutting wit on himself and his contemporaries, and looking past the extravagant nightclubs, parties, and cafés to find Rome in all its glory: a timeless landscape of absurd, exquisite beauty.

"The Great Beauty, an essay on nostalgia, gives even the cynics a faith in the vibrancy of movies and the reviving artistry of Paolo Sorrentino ... it is the years grandest, most exhilarating foreign film." Richard and Mary Corliss, TIME Magazine

"A radiant work on the meaning of life ... The Great Beauty is drop-dead gorgeous, a film that is luxuriously, seductively, stunningly cinematic. But more than intoxicating imagery is on director Paolo Sorrentino's mind, a lot more." Kenneth Turan, The Los Angeles Times

"A deliriously alive movie ... a wildly inventive and sometimes thrilling ode to sensibility and to some of its linguistic cousins, like sensation, sensitivity and sentiment." Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

"The face of Toni Servillo is one of the treasures of modern cinema ... Look no further, if you wish to know whether, where, and in what guise the spirit of Fellini remains at work  and, better still, at play." Anthony Lane, The New Yorker

"I cant remember when a film last gave me such a surge of pure pleasure  no, outright euphoria  as The Great Beauty ... I find the film infinitely resonant, as inexhaustibly explorable as Rome itself." Jonathan Romney, Film Comment

"Thrillingly good ... Sorrentino offers the most ravishing footage of Rome I've ever seen." John Powers, Fresh Air, National Public Radio

"A blast. Theres little sense in trying to resist the films tumultuous visual banquet. Sorrentino's vision is the size of Rome itself, and his confidence is dazzling." Michael Atkinson, The Village Voice

"The Great Beauty is a subtly daring cinematic high-wire act ... And it might just be the most unforgettable film of the year." Bilge Ebiri, Vulture
