||Synopsis: Journalist Jep Gambardella 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.

Italian cinema is, at last, on a roll again. Perhaps not in the same
way as when Rossellini, Visconti, Fellini and De Sica were batting
masterpiece after masterpiece into the arena but maybe more
prodigiously than at any time since the young Olmi and young Bertolucci
were setting the screen alight. In recent years we have had
Michelangelo Frammartino's "Le Quattro Volte", Gianni De Gregorio's
sublimely gentle comedies "Mid-August Lunch" and "The Salt of Life"
and, perhaps best of all, the films of Paolo Sorrentino whose "The
Consequences of Love", "The Family Friend" and "Il Divo" were highly
original and sufficiently off-the-wall to invite comparisons with
Fellini. His one venture into English-language cinema, "This Must be
the Place", met with a largely hostile reception from critics who
accused him of being self-indulgent but I found the film to be gorgeous
and quirky and just what I would have expected from so idiosyncratic a
talent. And now we have "The Great Beauty", a return to Italy and a
return to, what his critics might see as, earlier form.
This film, too, has been compared to Fellini which is entirely
appropriate as this is a "La Dolce Vita" for the 21st century. You can
even imagine the film's central character, Jeb, as Marcello, older if
hardly wiser and for Sorrentino nothing much has changed. But if this
is Sorrentino in Fellini mode it's just as close to the beauty and
spectacle of "Amarcord" or, more appropriately, "Juliet of the
Spirits". Once again the lead is taken by Toni Servillo, who was
Sorrentino's Andreotti in "Il Divo" and once again he confirms his
position as one of the cinema's finest actors, heading a truly superb
As in "La Dolce Vita" there is no real 'story' but rather a series of
episodes in the life of Jeb in the days following his 65th birthday,
(his birthday party is the first of the film's many great sequences).
If there is a theme it's Jeb's increasing disillusionment with the
lifestyle he has associated himself with over the years, a lifestyle he
is very reluctant to give up, no matter how pragmatically he views it.
He is a man who has had many women but no real relationship to speak
of, (the early love of his life married someone else). He meets the
daughter of an old friend, a 42 year old stripper with a drug habit,
and they strike up a relationship of sorts though when they go to bed
together he is happy when they don't have sex. He gets sustenance from
his friends although he can be cutting and abrasive in their presence.
It seems as it is they, and not money or power, which keeps him going.
This is a magnificent movie, the kind of film that you know is being
composed, frame by gorgeous frame, by a master film-maker. It is a
breathtaking melange of sound and images, of great performances and
superlative dialogue that draws you in and holds you from its first
shot to its last. Some directors open their films with great tracking
shots but Sorrentino saves his to the end, up, over and under the
bridges of the Tiber as the final credits roll. Don't leave the cinema
to the very last second.
