Just marvellous
21 September 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

That The Glass Mountain featured Tito Gobbi and was scored by Nino Rota are immediate selling points. And they do not disappoint. Gobbi when he appears is on top form, not the most beautiful or powerful voice(but still a good sturdy one) but his intelligence and musicianship really shines through as does his acting ability. Nino Rota's music is both musical and sweeping, an outstanding score and one of the best of his early ones. The gorgeous Alpine scenery and that The Glass Mountain is beautifully shot are other things to like, as are the songs that Gobbi sings and the amusing, powerful and moving story. The rest of the acting is fine and the singing is top-drawer. The Glass Mountain always engage, the film is nicely scripted and the direction doesn't undermine anyone or anybody at all. If there is anything to criticise The Glass Mountain for, it is that the ending is somewhat of a cop-out though Rota's music does elevate it a little. Other than that, it is a marvellous and charming film. 9/10 Bethany Cox
