Film Title: La Grande Belleza (English: The Great Beauty)

Description:

The grande bellezza, like the grande tristezza, can mean love, sex, art, or death, but above all it means Rome, and the city is evoked with staggering flair and attack. Sorrentino’s signature swooping and zooming camera discloses scenes and figures and faces.

We see a sunny, glorious morning in the city: a Japanese tourist has collapsed, through fatigue, or perhaps some aesthetic overload, a Roman death epiphany.

The director then contrives a thrilling hard cut from this subdued scene to a deafening Eurotrash party thrown for Jep’s 65th birthday, pulsing to Sorrentino’s favorite glassy electro-pop: a writhing Bosch mass of revelers.

The Virgin Suicides may be thoughtful and melancholic in tone, but a lot of it is very poignant as well. The story is deliberately glacial in place which added actually to the film’s beauty and is very whimsical, maybe too much in places but overall it was effective.
