12 January 2016 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

for the inspired reconstruction of atmosphere of a page from Italy's past. for beautiful performance of Ronald Pickup. for the seduction of a fight for values who impress scene by scene. for the grace of music. and as homage to a great composer who becomes vulnerable, courageous hero of his nation. good introduction to his life. and interesting piece of biographic portrait who use the clichés for large, convincing, powerful image of a personality who becomes symbol of his mother land. and that transforms the film in a manifesto, like the music of Verdi. short, a beautiful film. who could represent a nice surprise for the viewer who prefers this genre.
