“..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]

“..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]
“..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..”
