Incredible, and incredibly pretentious
10 November 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film is about the emotional problems of very, very talented; very, very rich people. It features fake desire, fake spirituality, fake grief, fake love, fake friendship. The script is in English - that is to say, the words spoken are English words, but they seem to have been generated from Italian via free automatic translation. It managed to be both totally incredible and totally predictable. It might be the worst film I've ever seen. It is definitely the most pretentious. The photography is quite pretty.

More lines of text are required... so I'll just say that Michael Caine does not make a convincing conductor, and that some of the musicians involved seemed appropriately embarrassed.
