A Movie “The Great Beauity” (La Grande Bellezza) 12/12/13

December 12, 2013

It is a beautiful movie… For me as a Japanese, this movie depicts a typical image of Italian life. A journalist, Jep Gambardella (Toni Servillo) has charmed and seduced his way through the lavish nightlife of Rome for decades. A night after night, he parties. He goes to bed after sunrise. 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 he became 65, he started to question about his past, his life… We go through Rome with Jep, and discover the beauty of the city, arts, culture, history.. Rome is beautiful forever.
