I take it I'm missing out?
This Must be the place is a bit of an acquired taste, but Il Divo is fantastic.
it appears to be about an old man who moves to Rome, dances with some pretty ladies, then decides he wants to run the parties, then there's a nun.
Agree with most of the comments below
but I can't help feeling that it's probably just Best Exotic Marigold Hotel for the jet-set, coke-headed end of the baby boomers.
I can see that
this looks pretty great from what I've read. sounds like a throwback to the kind of italian artwank films of the 60s and early 70s
i'll have a pint of artwank please, mr. brewdog
Looking forward to it
makes it sound an awful lot like la dolce vita
he was influenced by people like Fellini and Visconti.
But it's definitely its own film. Possibly controversial opinion but I found it more adventurous and moving than La Dolce Vita.
now I've seen it loads of times I've enjoyed shutting my eyes during it, because that guys voice speaking in Italian is lovely. Didn't really fancy the film but it did make me think I'd like to go to Italy!
but it seems it was an unusually strong competition with other excellent films.
I also loved Le conseguenze dell'amore and Il divo.
Looking forward to seeing Blue is the warmest colour
Hedonism of Skins with too many subplots - which could have been potentially brilliant by themselves and relied heavily on the beauty scenic shots.
Alright film overall, but not anything amazing.
