La gran belleza
The Great Beauty
La gran belleza The story of an aging journalist who bitterly recollects his passionate, lost youth. A portrait of today’s Rome. Journalist Jep Gambardella (Toni Servillo, ‘Il divo’ and ‘Gomorrah’) has charmed and seduced his way through the lavish nightlife of Rome for decades. Since the legendary success of his one and only novel, he has been a permanent fixture in the city’s literary and social circles, but when his sixty-fifth birthday coincides with a shock from the past, Jep finds himself unexpectedly taking stock of his life, turning his cutting wit on himself and his contemporaries, and looking past the extravagant nightclubs, parties, and cafés to find Rome in all its glory: a timeless landscape of absurd, exquisite beauty.
