The Great Beauty (La grande bellezza)

Italy 2013

Details IMDB

Seen 7 May 2014

Ratings from other sources
IMDB 7.7/10

Jep Gambardella has seduced his way through the lavish nightlife of Rome for decades, but after his 65th birthday and a shock from the past, Jep looks past the nightclubs and parties to find a timeless landscape of absurd, exquisite beauty

My ratings 8.0/10

My impressions:

The birthday celebration brings back memories
Each street, each building has its part
In making him what he is
In the past when he was just starting
And now an established name

There is that nagging recurring question
Why did that one relationship
End the way it did

New friends, encounters, lovers
Could never equal or be the same
As that which has passed

That is the best
