Remembering a great human named Luciano
30 August 2019 | by vinsond21See all my reviews

He was a famous tenor who helped make opera popular with the general public. I knew about him and his music, but this documentary opened my eyes to so much more. The viewer gets to meet his family, his managers, his celebrity friends. It was lovely to see the late Princess Diana during happier times, and awesome to hear the thoughts of Bono who appeared in concert with Pavarotti. Born during the War and following an early brush with death, Pavarotti grew up embracing life with a zest that rubbed off on many who crossed his paths. You don't have to be an opera lover or a Pavarotti fan to enjoy this film, but you will come away knowing a lot more about this fascinating larger-than-life human being and appreciating his outsized talent. And getting to hear him sing and see him perform on the big screen is a treat that i cannot recommend enough.
