Movie is OK, but singing is great
17 February 2002 | by proboscideSee all my reviews

As an accurate piece of biographical film, I doubt this movie would make it, but the singing of Mario del Monaco is superb. If you enjoy opera, then the singing will not disappoint. The film itself is just an excuse to highlight del Monaco's singing. A young Gina Lollobrigida is a treat.
