This movie combines both authenticity and artistry. It tells Michelangelo's life truly from his childhood to his dead along with his fabulous creations .
No doubt that Michelangelo had a gift which ushering in a great and different life of him .When 25 years old ,he finished his first famous work ,the pi eta . And the following year he began work on the 17 foot tall marble statue of the biblical hero, David,which combining human strength and uncertainty,become a symbol of the power and determination of Republican Fllorence .The celling of the Sistine chapel and the dome of st peter's are the other two masterpieces.For centuries people couldn't believe they were created b a mortal,but it's truth. He was a mortal,a mortal with complex character .
A traumatic childhood ,which ,I think ,affected his character to some degree.Bad-tempered,paranoid,fearsome but also affectionate,ambitious and having enough courage and willpower to do what he want to ,this is him ,the divine Michelangelo .He lived poorly and had poor personal hygiene,he worked for powerful men and spun the myth that he has aristocratic roots ,he spent four years to complete the celling of Sistine chapel,which was a massive struggle that stretched him physically,emotionally and technically.
In a word , his passion for art ,for beauty and for God was his driving force throughout his life ,making him a giant .
