Story


Journalist Jep Gambardella (the dazzling Toni Servillo) 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 cafes to find Rome in all its glory: a timeless landscape of absurd, exquisite beauty.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..it's a glorious experience, one that blends both compassionate dismay and wry delight over Italy's own, eternal excess..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]
“..it's an exploration of all things surface, yes, but it has soul too, and just as the supremely controlled and refined Jep surprises himself by crying at a funeral, so the final power of 'The Great Beauty' surprises us too..”
by Dave Calhoun [Time Out]
“..a deliriously alive movie, "The Great Beauty" is the story of a man, a city, a country and a cinema, though not necessarily in that order..”
by Manohla Dargis [New York Times]
