Atom User Reviews for Pavarotti
Loved it! A great break from coverage of our dreadful lying president!!
Amazing story. So many things I did not know about this amazing artist.
Theatre was horrible... we went inside n came out within 15 minutes. Small theatre ... horrible experience.. waste of money
A wonderful, heartwarming true story... and of course, the music is outstanding.
Excellent bio plus plenty of singing
Howard’s film is a love letter to the icon, but ultimately Pavarotti is a more of a celebration of the individual behind that façade and a reminder that it’s as much his humanity as his talent that made him a star.
Intelligent, vastly appreciative of its subject and conventional in approach, Pavarotti can scarcely go wrong due to the charisma of its subject, the gorgeous music that wallpapers the entire film and an arc of success arguably unmatched in the opera world. If the film is all but engorged with goodies, one can hardly object that this is in some way inappropriate to it subject.
Even for opera neophytes who couldn’t tell a soprano from a tenor, Ron Howard’s brisk, engaging film capably maps out an art form that Luciano Pavarotti ruled for decades, including enough technical insight to go along with an overview of the maestro’s personal and professional highlights.
