PAVAROTTI

Rating: CTC

A look at the life and work of opera legend, Luciano Pavarotti.

“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.” SCREEN INTERNATIONAL.

“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.” HOLLYWOOD REPORTER.

“It’s hard not to be enamored as well, as Pavarotti’s larger-than-life personality shines in almost every scene.” NEW YORK TIMES.

“Ron 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.” THE WRAP.
